How I ll Prepared Is America To Handle Coronavirus

The coronavirus is now getting takers for a vaccine and the US has already committed a whooping figure in developing a cure. Vietnam healthy ministry has proudly declared that all the 16 people who was suffering from the virus have been cured.

While political analysts believe that America is very ill equipped under Trump’s leadership to handle an outbreak in America, the White House seems to have sent off an urgent request to lawmakers with a $2.5 billion plan to address the deadly coronavirus outbreak. The virus outbreak is rapidly spreading to Iran and Middle Eastern countries also and has started to threat the global economy that has now started to rock financial markets too.

The White House budget office has indicated that the funds are being kept away for vaccines, treatment, and protective equipment. The request could advance quickly through Congress and came as coronavirus fears were credited with Monday’s 1,000-plus point drop in the Dow Jones Industrials and are increasingly seen as a potential political threat to President Donald Trump.

Late in January, the World Health Organization has already declared the virus, named COVID-19, a “Public Health Emergency of International Concern” and urged an immediate international response. There are still suspicions that the virus could have been triggered through a biological weapon and may not have been bat induced at all.

Everyone is foxed about when did the virus make the jump from animals to humans, and from which species? How widespread are cases, how infectious is the disease and how fatal is it?

Back home, as Trump makes a political statement with his presence in India, the US stocks seemed to have dived amid growing concerns about a deadly virus spreading quickly across continents. The whole situation looks like a bubble about to burst when it comes to Trump’s tall claims and re-election bids while the country isn’t looking prepared to handle the pandemic like conditions. The president has been using a downplaying strategy reassuring public that ‘all is well’.

According to Russell Riley, a presidential historian at the University of Virginia’s Miller Center, “for a president who has governed by tweet and circus a potential global health crisis that blunts economic growth could expose one of Trump’s main weaknesses as he prepares to face voters in November.”Trump has systematically crippled the emergency response system and medical backbone of the country. By ridding himself of experienced officials and those in the scientific community, he has literally chopped the legs off under him. The time is near when America might find itself extremely ill equipped to handle a catastrophe as declared by WHO.

Trump Ridicules Democrats As He Prepares For Second Term

Trump Ridicules Democrats As He Prepares For Second Term

From the way the Republicans have swayed the trial’s outcome towards the impeachment of the President of US, it seems Donald Trump will be acquitted. Speaking to the Congress, Trump went all out to ridicule Democrats’ efforts to impeach Trump over two articles they submitted to the senate.

He was also able to establish credibility for being re-elected for a fresh term, when he boasted openly about how his policies of deregulation and tax cuts were responsible for “unparalleled success” in the economy. He also mentioned how in his presidency, the US economy had done better, and earned the respect the country deserves in the eyes of the world. “In just three short years we have shattered the mentality of American decline and we have rejected the downsizing of America’s destiny,” Trump said.

Soon later, Nancy Pelosi, the speaker of the house tore the speech of the president apart.  Her frustration and anger was verbalized in her action. While he got a standing ovation from his own party, Trump started his speech, steering the subject of his impeachment in the early portion of his speech. All the time, at the Congress meeting, the rival Democrats for the most part remained seated and showed their disgruntlement. Throughout his speech, Trump asserted how he had done so much better for the American economy than his predecessor Barack Obama. It has been seen over his term of presidency, that he has out of his way, to undo everything which had been done by Obama in his term to better the situation of America from the inside and on the outside. The worst damage done by Trump has been to the 2015 Nuclear deal which was designed and implemented by Obama. By undoing it, Trump has created war like conditions with Iran and misbalanced the equations with other European countries whose future also depends on this deal. Read more news in america.

America Sanctions and Waives Off Together

America Sanctions and Waives Off Together

The United States has yet again imposed sanctions on Iran’s nuclear entity as per the Treasury Department. However, it has been stated that the US will not interfere in Russian, Chinese and European firms continuing to work at Iranian nuclear sites. This might make it harder for that country to develop a nuclear weapon.

Further, the US will now issue waivers to sanctions that that initially barred non-US firms from dealing with the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran. According to the same sources, the waivers’ renewal will allow nonproliferation work to continue for 60 days. This will be done at the Arak heavy-water research reactor, the Bushehr nuclear power plant, the Tehran Research Reactor and other nuclear cooperation initiatives.

Waivers have had to be given in order to prevent non-proliferation, a decision that has come after a debate between the US Treasury and State Department. In November 2019, Washington had terminated the sanctions waiver related to Iran’s Fordow nuclear plant after Tehran resumed uranium enrichment at the underground site. The US retracted itself from the 2015 Nuclear Deal completely misbalancing world economy. Under the 2015 deal that was a great peace keeping effort made by Barac Obama, it was joint agreement between Iran and six world powers. These include Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the United States. Under the agreement, Tehran promised to limit its nuclear program in return for the lifting of economic sanctions that had crippled its economy. However, Trump’s retracement has left the rest of the partners in an extremely tough spot.
