The coronavirus is not only causing ill effects on human health, it is also wreaking havoc on the US stock market. Wall Street recorded its the worst day since the 1987 crash.

President Trump once called the coronavirus a “Democrat hoax” but is now eyeing the issue of a disaster declaration to release federal resources to states. Trump himself may have been exposed to COVID-19 when hosting Brazilian officials at Mar-A-Lago.
