I would buy defense stocks while they’re cheap.

#China’s economy will suffer as exogenous demand plummets. To maintain full(er) employment, they’re likely to conscript people.

They may even offer to send soldiers to #coronavirus/#COVID19🦠 hot zones as a soft power strategy.
… understand this: #China’s Communist Party sees moments like these as opportunities.

America’s divided political leadership — inc. Congressional Republicans who, like #RushLimbaugh, are apparently smarter than world renowned epidemiologists — leaves us open to be leapfrogged…
… an example: #POTUS #Trump did the smart thing in imposing a #TravelBan on #Europe🇪🇺.

Europe, please impose one on the US, too! We *must* stop non-essential travel.

But while Europeans nursed their hurt feelings, #China promoted THIS👇 story…

… bookmark this tweet, because I’m telling you right now that you’re about to see #China’s propaganda apparatus go into overdrive.

Every story will be calibrated with military-like precision to frame the #CCP as victims-turned-saviors in the #coronavirus/#COVID19🦠 #pandemic
#POTUS #Trump is now fighting a multi-front war:

1) vs. #coronavirus/#COVID19🦠
2) vs. economic contagion
3) vs. Congressional leaders who‘re still playing politics
4) vs. his own instincts to maybe be too optimistic
5) vs. #China’s propaganda efforts to erode US soft power
… I’m going to keep this thread updated with propaganda emanating from #China’s Communist Party re: #coronavirus/#COVID19.

Here we see an incredible, sickening scene in the #Philippines🇵🇭, with #Duterte praising Chairman #XiJinping.

… but it’s not just #Italy🇮🇹 & the #Philippines🇵🇭 where China’s Communist Party is looking to influence people.

#CCP member #JackMa has announced that he’s going to do what the #CDC has struggled to do… get #coronavirus/#COVID19 tests to Americans. 🤦🏻
