Health Officials Expect U.S. Coronavirus Outbreak: ‘It's More of a Question of When'
U.S. officials admitted Tuesday that the United States is likely to suffer a coronavirus outbreak, one day after the Trump administration requested $2.5 billion to help slow the spread of the virus.The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention revealed that it now expects a large increase in U.S. cases, and urged Americans to prepare for "the expectation that this might be bad."Nancy Messonnier, the director of the Center DC's National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, said that "it's not so much of a question of if this will happen in this country any more but a question of when this will happen." She also warned that "the disruption of daily life might be severe."The Trump administration has delivered a mixed response on the virus, with U.S. health secretary Alex Azar admitting during a Senate hearing on Tuesday that "we cannot hermetically seal off the United States to a virus . . . and we need to be realistic about that." Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf added that "we only know that, again, we anticipate those numbers to grow in the U.S.," but said he could not give an "exact number."Later in the day, National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow struck a different tone on CNBC. "We have contained this — I won't say airtight, but it's pretty close to airtight," he said. Stocks plunged for the second consecutive day, as the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell over 900 points after Tuesday-morning gains.President Trump told

Democratic debate viewers cannot escape Mike Bloomberg
If he didn't get his message across during the debate, all former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg had to do was wait for the commercial break.During Tuesday night's Democratic debate in South Carolina, 60-second ads for Bloomberg aired during the first two commercial breaks.

In new gaffe, White House hopeful Biden says running for 'Senate'
Joe Biden's White House bid has been rocked by a series of verbal slip-ups days before South Carolina's Democratic primary, a make-or-break contest as the former vice president struggles to reverse his campaign's slide. Eclipsed by a surging Bernie Sanders, Biden suggested to supporters Monday that he was campaigning "for the United States Senate" -- where he served for 36 years, until a decade ago. Biden also blundered by saying he had negotiated the 2015 Paris climate accord with China's Deng Xiaoping, who died in 1997.
