A pandemic tanking the stock market may be Democrats’ best hope for winning in 2020, and they can barely contain their glee
The way things have been going, the economy was on target to remain powerful through Election Day 2020, giving Trump a strong likelihood of reelection. Reflecting that reality, a record percentage of Americans are satisfied with their lives.
Enter coronavirus and the potential for a pandemic that causes worldwide suffering and economic damage tanking the stock market and the U.S. economy. The Trump administration has been very proactive, even though China has rebuffed help, including just requesting $2.5 billion specifically targeted at coronavirus response.
Enter Trump Derangement Syndrome, where the number one priority is defeating Trump. And if devastation to the stock market due to coronavirus is needed, well, Democrats and media supporters are practically giddy at placing the blame on Trump.
Ted Lieu tried to blame Trump for cuts to the Centers for Disease Control that have not taken place and would not have affected coronavirus response anyway:
Watch the video:
The Dow dropped significantly this morning because of the continuing spread of the coronavirus.
The @realDonaldTrump budget proposes cuts to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Pelosi on coronavirus: I have confidence in Dr. Fauci at the National Institutes of Health, who has even further confidence in what we’re doing. I do have concern that the President’s budget cut nineteen percent of the Center for Disease Control…We’ll fight that cut.

This is typical of President Trump's senseless budget cuts.
President Trump wants to slash funding for the CDC. His new budget proposes a 16 percent cut at the agency.
But the Coronavirus crisis continues to spread across the globe!

#Trump mismanaged the Coronavirus! What happened to the CDC? Another one of his loyalist hacks in charge?? Who are the "American officials" who let the untested sick people off the boat and then put them on a plane behind a sheet? I guess they don't believe in science either.

But Trump will spend $10 billion on a border wall that doesn’t work… https://t.co/rLcM2riVFM
