Thanks Trump, China is way behind. Thanks Trump the vets are better treated today. USA is respected. Powerful economy. But USA people most have a better social behaviour, and save for hard times, Are used to MISSPEND the money. NYC Budget, where is it? Highest Taxes. No results. They want to live at the expense of the rest of USA citizens.

Acosta being the worst as he believes he has more knowledge then the President, being an Elitist. I suggest he run for the DNC seat so we can see what these News guys are really made of.

  • What does China own in the UK? China may be the world's second-largest economy behind the US, but it has more money in the bank than any other country.Chinese firms bought up British assets worth $11.3bn (£9bn) last year and have spent nearly $50bn in the last decade on acquisitions into the country.Pizza Express The British restaurant chain was gobbled up by Beijing-based Hony Capital in a £900m deal. House of Fraser In a £480m deal, UK department store chain House of Fraser sold a majority stake in its business to Chinese conglomerate Sanpower. “This acquisition is a landmark transaction for a Chinese listed company,” said Yuan Yafei, chairman of Sanpower Group. Hamleys Britain’s most iconic toy store Hamleys got a new owner in 2015 when Chinese footwear seller C Banner International bid for the then 255-year-old brand. The £100m deal was made to help C Banner diversify into other businesses. Thomas Cook To crack Europe’s travel sector, Chinese investor Fosun bought a five per cent stake in Thomas Cook for £92m in 2015. National Grid In December, National Grid struck a deal to sell a 61 per cent stake in its UK gas distribution business to a consortium backed by China Investment Corporation, and Aussie financiers Macquarie. Beijing Construction Engineering Group would be investing £800m into a new area of Manchester Airport called Airport City. The development will provide logistics, manufacturing, office and leisure facilities for Britain's third busiest airport. ritain's busiest port - Felixstowe in Suffolk - has been wholly owned since 1994 by Hutchisons Port Holdings, a subsidiary of Hong Kong-based CK Hutchison, run by Chinese-born magnate and billionaire Li Ka-shing. China's State Administration of Foreign Exchange (SAFE-IC) bought almost half of the Co-operative Group's future headquarters in Manchester, called One Angel Square. It also bought 40% of UPP Group Holdings, a major provider of student accommodation in Britain and 100% of City of London glass and steel office block Drapers' Gardens will the gov be freezing chinas assets. hold China legally and politically accountable for all its dishonesty and harm to people .If China were an individual, a company, or a law-abiding nation, it would be required to provide compensation for the harm it has inflicted.China’s failures render it legally liable under international law.

  • Raab fails to confirm whether NHS staff will receive pay rise Dominic Raab has acknowledged that those working on the front lines to tackle coronavirus will be formally recognised. However, the Foreign Secretary stopped short of confirming whether or not NHS staff would be given a pay rise. Mr Raab, currently deputising for Prime Minister Boris Johnson who is receiving hospital treatment for the virus, was asked during the Government’s daily briefing whether health staff deserved a rise. He said: “There will be a moment when we look at how we formally recognise all of those on the front line who have done so much to pull us through this very difficult period for our country.” --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Uber driver who 'caught coronavirus from passenger’ texted family 'pray for me' before he died A fit and healthy Uber driver texted “pray for me” to his family as he lay dying of coronavirus - with his brother claiming he caught the bug from a coughing passenger. Ayub Akhtar had apparently told his family about the female passenger who coughed continuously in his taxi before he began developing symptoms himself. The 33-year-old south Londoner then died last Friday in intensive care. ======================================================================= What did the government expect would happen when they decided to look after doctors with a round of applause? Im a doctor who has recently been showing symptoms, but i dont know for sure because i havent been tested. The Hospitals are breeding grounds for Covid19 because PPE is only provided to wards with confirmed cases. Meaning those who show symptoms are left to spread the disease to other patients and medical staff until they have been confirmed. My hospital group chat has had a sharp increase in doctors isolating these couple of days and the number of medical staff falling ill will only increase in the next month. The public peak will happen sometime at the end of the month. How are we supposed to do our job when we are isolating? If people die next month, they will blame it on public spreading the disease, but this months deaths will be because of lack of staff to deal with the rise in cases. The government will have blood on their hands because they refused to prepare/respond. How has one of the wealthiest countries failed so badly? The politicians have traded public lives for the economy. This is wrong and we are more than numbers on a screen. ----------------------------------------------- Housing Secretary has been accused of flouting lockdown rules for a second time by travelling from his London residence to his 'second home' in Herefordshire, days after he was also spotted visiting his parents. Robert Jenrick defended escaping 150 miles to his £1.1million mansion, where his family are staying, as the pandemic rages on. ------------------------------------------------- Mum wraps coronavirus nurse daughter in blanket so they can hug for first time in weeks A desperate mum covered her virus nurse daughter in a blanket so she could give her a tearful hug for the first time in weeks. A family friend took a photo of Cheryl Norton embracing frontline health worker Kelsey Kerr amid the ever-growing pandemic. The 64-year-old mum grabbed a sheet from the washing basket and threw it over her daughter when she dropped round on Friday to pick up some essential supplies. Kelsey, 28, was working 12 hour shifts at Christ Church Hospital in Cincinnati, but is now isolating with her husband and dog. ======================================================================== Coronavirus predicted to infect '80% of UK population' by government advisor The coronavirus is predicted to infect 80% of the UK’s population, a government advisor has claimed. Rupert Shute, the deputy scientific adviser at the Home Office, made the statement during a press conference call with the Passport Office on Thursday over workers being asked to go back. In a leaked transcript of a Zoom meeting involving Passport Office managers, seen by the BBC, Mr Shute said: “You are no more at risk at the workplace as you would be in your home or at the supermarket. “It is about minimising it. We are working on the assessment that 80 per cent of us, if we haven’t already, will get the virus.”

He wrote: “Nobody could fail to be moved at the way our country came together again tonight to clap our health and social care workers. “It was a wave of positive energy and emotion, showing the huge support for those fighting on the frontline against coronavirus. “When we get through this - and we will get through this - it will be because of our NHS staff, our care workers, our ambulance drivers, our emergency services, our cleaners, our porters. “They are the best of us. They are the heroes of our generation.

  • Boris Johnson had enough media coverage,so we wont bore you. ------------------------------ Black and Asian people may be at greater risk from coronavirus Black and Asian people may be at greater risk of more severe illness from coronavirus due to social, cultural and biological reasons, experts have said. Data on patients with confirmed Covid-19 from the Intensive Care National Audit and Research Centre (ICNARC) shows that ethnic minorities are over-represented compared with the general population. Of 1,966 patients with Covid-19, the ICNARC said 64.8% were white, 13.6% were black, 13.8% were Asian, and 6.6% were described as other. Duncan Young, professor of intensive care medicine at the University of Oxford, has pointed out that in the UK 2011 census, about 7.5% of the population were Asian and 3.3% black. Prof Young said: “There are reports from the USA about far more than expected black patients being hospitalised for Covid-19. “There is a possibility of a genetic cause for the disproportionate number of ICU admissions in Asian and black patients, but as it is occurring across two different ethnic groups this is not likely. “The larger-than-expected numbers of cases in Asian and black patients may represent an effect of different social or cultural factors leading to more cases in these groups overall that is simply being reflected in ICU admissions. “Alternatively, it may be the burden of chronic conditions predisposing to severe Covid infections and hence ICU admission is higher in these ethnic groups.” ------------------------------------- Doctor, 62, killed by coronavirus died in intensive care at hospital where he worked A heartbroken family has paid tribute to a doctor who “died doing the job he loved - serving others before himself”. Dr Edmond Adedeji died in the intensive care unit of the hospital in which he worked after testing positive for the coronavirus. Great Western Hospital in Swindon, Wiltshire, described the 62-year-old as a “respected and well-liked member of the team”. He died on April 8 after testing positive for Covid-19. In a statement, his family said: “We as a family are grateful to God for the life of Dr Edmond Adefolu Adedeji. “He died doing a job he loved, serving others before himself. “We would like to thank the staff and his colleagues for looking after him during his final days. “He leaves behind a wife, three children and three grandchildren.” -------------------------------------
