Update, March 11, 10:20 am:

Two new articles in the March 11 issue of The Guardian provide more evidence of Donald Trump's appalling demagogy in blaming nonwhite immigrants for the coronavirus outbreak in the US, even though his own anti-immigrant agenda could make the outbreak much more dangerous than it already is. See:

My earlier comment follows below:


As the reported US coronavirus infection total passed 1,000 with 29 deaths nationwide so far, Donald Trump has come under more criticism, including from a leading Republican Congressman, for CDC budget cuts that left America dangerously unprepared.

Trump has also resorted to crude anti-immigrant racism in his reaction to the spread of the potentially deadly disease in the face of mounting evidence that his immigration agenda is increasing the risk of spreading the virus rather than reducing it.

The Washington Post reports on March 10 that Republican Representative Tom Cole (Oklahoma) who warned three years ago that Trump's CDC budget cuts could lead to a US pandemic, is now renewing his criticism of the administration's llack of preparedness. See:
