From a poster over at Washington Post:

 

Breaking News NPR: White House Knew Coronavirus Would Be A 'Major Threat' — But Response Fell Short 
"the president had made clear - the lower the numbers on coronavirus, the better for the president, the better for his potential reelection this fall."

Trump internally to save his reelection blocked the testing kits that would have saved lives and prevented the spread of the Coronavirus.

 

I'd believe it!

 

The thing is, Donald Trump is afraid high numbers will hurt his chances for reelection, but what good does it do him to allow this virus to spread throughout the country when everyone's too sick or dead to go to the polls in November?  Not too bright, Donald!  Not too bright!

Of course useless David Sirota is taking the opportunity to make it all about how much he hates the Democrats (in between talking about how they don't want Bernie to win because he works for Bernie).

He'd just get to cancel the election.

That's a good question, People can just travel to the UK from Europe and then board a plane. I'm puzzled by the UK exemption for sure.

Austria is rumoured to be locked down soon.
Slovakia and Czech Republic have banned foreigners from entering the country.
Lithuania and Latvia have closed all schools and banned large social gatherings.
In Spain, several areas have been put in quarantine.
In Germany, 6 of the 16 federal states have decided to close all schools. More sanctions are expected to follow today.

Kushner remains so laughably ineffective he would probably be played by Don Knotts in another universe.

No, they've canceled.  Look upthread.

 

Trump is back to his fallback of trying to blame Obama for the lack of available testing, even though it was Trump who eliminated an entire department from the CDC, most pointedly, he eliminated the department that dealt with pandemics.

 

Yesterday I heard that 85% of the financial gains made during the Trump administration have already been frittered away.  This morning, I'm reading a news article that confirms as much. That's not on account of Obama, that is because the markets have absolutely no trust or faith in Trump or his hapless administration.
