#2 It's entering conspiracy territory. Just saying.

#3 Let's see how the Democrats explain opposition to a measure that helps lower-income Americans more than anyone else.

Just you wait; they'll think of something!

#6 It will. With all the safeguards to keep a crash from happening in place.

#7 In 2 or 3 weeks you'll be looking at a shutdown Italian style. As we will.

#8 All US travel to and from Europe for next 30 days. Bad enough.

But cargo? That's absurd. There's no evidence that the virus spreads by cargo and even if a low risk existed, this could easily be met with disinfection.

Expect the DOW to shed another 2000 points tomorrow. And then some.

#9 This is crazy:

Trump tweets:

"Hoping to get the payroll tax cut approved by both Republicans and Democrats, and please remember, very important for all countries & businesses to know that trade will in no way be affected by the 30-day restriction on travel from Europe. The restriction stops people not goods."

From his speech:

"these prohibitions will not only apply to the tremendous amount of trade and cargo, but various other things as we get approval."

Who writes his effing speeches?
