The Obama administration opened 49 overseas Centers for Disease Control offices, designed to proactively prevent viruses from reaching pandemic proportions. Against expert opinions, President Trump has shut down 39 of these offices. One of those satellite CDC offices was in China.
The Trump CDC budget cuts make the coronavirus outbreak his mess.

As in the 2008 meltdown, the weapon of choice for manipulating and moving piles of bank-owned debt around the world is a type of derivative called a “swap.”
The four big U.S. banks are holding company swaps of $300 trillion, which reveals a financial infrastructure that mimics the failed financial engineering created in the mortgage markets, leading up to the 2008 financial crash. Another Trump mess in the making.
