Trump's lening bij de Chinezen, bemoeilijkt Trump om Biden aan te vallen over Trump's eerder verwijt dat Biden geld heeft gekregen van de Chinezen.
Trump owed tens of millions to Bank of China
The president's financial dealings with the state-owned bank complicate his attacks on Biden.
Donald Trump is warning “China will own the United States” if Joe Biden is elected president.
But Trump himself has taken on debt from China. In 2012, his real estate partner refinanced one of Trump’s most prized New York buildings for almost $1 billion. The debt included $211 million from the state-owned Bank of China — its first loan of this kind in the U.S. — which matures in the middle of what could be Trump’s second term.
Steps from Trump Tower in Manhattan, the 43-story 1290 Avenue of the Americas skyscraper spans an entire city block. Trump owns a 30 percent stake in the property valued at more than $1 billion, making it one of the priciest addresses in his portfolio, according to his financial disclosures.
In 2022 loopt de lening af en zal Trump $211 miljoen aan de Chinese staatsbank moeten betalen.

Here’s an idea, Mr. President: more tests. Now. And protective equipment for actual medical professionals.
Trump is angry with Fox News — and ‘sees few allies no matter which channel he clicks’
President Donald Trump has been changing his schedule as the coronavirus crisis keeps him off of the golf course and campaign trail, according to a super-detailed new report on how the leader of the free world is spending his time.
“President Trump arrives in the Oval Office these days as late as noon, when he is usually in a sour mood after his morning marathon of television,” The New York Times reported Thursday. “He has been up in the White House master bedroom as early as 5 a.m. watching Fox News, then CNN, with a dollop of MSNBC thrown in for rage viewing. He makes calls with the TV on in the background, his routine since he first arrived at the White House.”
“But now there are differences. The president sees few allies no matter which channel he clicks. He is angry even with Fox, an old security blanket, for not portraying him as he would like to be seen,” the newspaper noted. “Confined to the White House, the president is isolated from the supporters, visitors, travel and golf that once entertained him, according to more than a dozen administration officials and close advisers who spoke about Mr. Trump’s strange new life.”
Trump is surrounded by bad news about his handling of the public health and economic crises.
“The economy — Mr. Trump’s main case for re-election — has imploded. News coverage of his handling of the coronavirus has been overwhelmingly negative as Democrats have condemned him for a lack of empathy, honesty and competence in the face of a pandemic. Even Republicans have criticized Mr. Trump’s briefings as long-winded and his rough handling of critics as unproductive,” The Times noted.
Maakt zijn tijd ledig met het onophoudelijke tv kijken en ervaart nu dat er geen enkele nieuwszender hem steunt.

Yup, we know: a person who can't remember the word "brain."

Jij bent off-topic!
Dat komt waarschijnlijk omdat er niets over Biden te schrijven is. Kleurloos.
Het is niks en wordt niks.
Gezien jouw aandacht voor hem is Trump ook op dit draadje een BAAS.
Nog 4 jaar!!

Alleen een asolute total economic collapse waar Trump zich in verslikt, kan Biden nog helpen.
Daar hoop ik dan ook maar op :-)
gEDver, weer een voorbeeld van die ziekelijke alles moet kapot mentaliteit...
Ik hoop dat mensen nu eindelijk eens een keer wakker worden, hun pijnappelklier laten werken en zorg gaan dragen voor elkaar en de natuur en afstand nemen van het ingeslagen pad van ongebreidelde zelfverrijking met corruptie, pedofilie, slavenarbeid, en allerlei andere narigheid tot gevolg...
Biden stelde zich al 2 keer eerder als kandidaat voor het presidentschap, voor het eerst in de jaren 80 ,
Bovendien was hij 8 jaren reeds vice president.
Nu dus voor de derde maal presidentskandidaat, op zijn 78 ste.
Een leven lang in de politiek dus.
De vraag is natuurlijk: wat bezield zo iemand?
-Is het automatisme. Gewoonte. Zo van , ik ben m’n hele leven al huisschilder geweest en ik blijf het doen tot mijn dood.
-oude jongens krentenbrood.
-denk hij werkelijk dat hij de beste man voor De USA is.
Ik hou het op een combi van de eerste 2 punten....

Kiss of death.
Joe Biden ;
Instead of preparing our country to fight COVID-19, Donald Trump wasted months and promised it would miraculously go away by April.
He was wrong. And we're all paying the price.

FEMA braces for COVID-infected hurricane season
Pete Gaynor, who runs the Federal Emergency Management Agency, is drafting a document whose title sounds like the stuff of horror movies: "COVID-19 Pandemic Operational Guidance for the 2020 Hurricane Season."
Driving the news: "We're doing a lot of things that are not necessarily in any playbook that has existed," Gaynor told me in an interview on Saturday. "In some cases, we write the playbook as we go."
Behind the scenes: In preparing for the June 1 start of the Atlantic hurricane season, Gaynor must consider challenges beyond what predecessors have faced:
How do you evacuate people from hurricane zones while maintaining 6 feet of social distancing?
How much extra shelter space will be needed to house people who can no longer safely crowd into schools, auditoriums and community centers?
How do you protect the most vulnerable people such as the elderly and those with underlying conditions?
Resources already are strained — and so are tensions between many governors and the Trump administration.
The big picture: It's the first time ever that every U.S. state and territory has simultaneously declared a major disaster.
"This pandemic, it is historic, it is unprecedented in many ways for FEMA," Gaynor said.
One nightmarish prospect: "If we have to evacuate a hospital, that hospital typically would just evacuate the patients," Gaynor said. "But now we've got to make sure they evacuate the patients, the medical equipment like ventilators, pharmaceuticals that allow ventilators to be used on patients in ICUs. All those things now make it more difficult, there's no doubt about it."
Natural disasters like floods may mean hospitals have to transfer patients sick with COVID-19 to other facilities that will take them.
"Locals and states really have to understand some of those challenges and plan for that," Gaynor said, adding that FEMA will try to help.
Why it matters: It's not hyperbolic to say that we could face the most dangerous combination of disaster threats in American history this summer.
As Hurricane Katrina tragically proved, one bad hurricane can overwhelm the federal government.
This year, early forecasts indicate that the Atlantic hurricane season may be worse than usual.
Wildfire season is approaching.
Earthquakes and floods are always a threat.
Even if the pandemic subsides over the summer, experts say it may resurge in a second wave as autumn nears — while hurricane season runs through Nov. 30.
Despite all this, Gaynor said he's "highly confident" FEMA can manage this unprecedented summer.
What's next: Gaynor says FEMA is preparing for the worst.
The agency has taken over vacant office space in downtown Washington, D.C., and set up an additional command center — called a "surge" National Response Coordination Center — for staff across the government to handle the non-COVID catastrophes threatening America this summer.
FEMA has ordered 100,000 "human remains pouches" (also known as body bags) that Gaynor hopes he won't need.
Between the lines: Gaynor has to manage all of this at a time when government resources and workers — not to mention the supply of personal protective equipment — are strained to the extreme. And he will need federal-state cooperation at a time when some governors are so mistrustful of the feds that they say they're hiding their PPE stockpiles in secure undisclosed locations so the federal government won't seize them.
Several governors, including Colorado's Jared Polis (D) and Massachusetts' Charlie Baker (R), have accused the federal government of diverting their supplies of critical equipment to fight COVID-19, including masks and ventilators.
Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) was using the Maryland National Guard to protect thousands of coronavirus tests he got for his state from South Korea.
When I asked him about this, Gaynor flatly denied the governors' charges.
Earlier Sunday, Hogan said on CNN's "State of the Union" that “I'm not sure it's necessary at this point" to keep guarding the tests. "There had been several reports of shipments being intercepted or diverted by the federal government" from other governors and "we wanted to make sure that that didn't happen," but FEMA and his state are "all working together. So, we're — it's not a concern any longer."
FEMA's press secretary Lizzie Litzow added in a statement: "FEMA does not, has not and will not divert orders of personal protective equipment (PPE) from our federal, state and local partners, nor do we have the legal authority to do so. Reports of FEMA commandeering or re-routing such supplies are false."???
"If a hospital believes this has happened to them, it should be reported to the governor. If a governor believes that this has happened to their supplies, it should be reported to the FEMA Region."
The bottom line: Gaynor is encouraging communities to prepare early — to download the FEMA app, which provides preparedness tips, disaster resources and localized weather alerts. And to check out FEMA's disaster preparedness campaign — ready.gov — and its coronavirus page, fema.gov/coronavirus.
