Video: Joe Biden allegations, US unemployment data, reopening vs lockdowns
What is the latest with the Tara Reade allegations against Joe Biden?
Tara Reade canceled an appearance scheduled for TV this morning. She now says any complaint she may have filed with the Senate 27 years ago does not include sexual harassment. Biden flatly denied it. I'm not sure it goes any further without more corroborating evidence.
Why is the April jobs report so important and what is the US going to do about it?
It's important because it will show the massive coronavirus hit, something like 20 million jobs lost. Unemployment rate nearing 20%. Not sure the US is going to do much of anything about it right away except squabble in Congress over another relief package that may take a while to deliver.
Are we successfully reopening states? Or are we headed for further lockdowns?
Too soon to say. We need another 10 days or so, given the incubation period for COVID-19, to see if there are new spread's, new outbreaks. If there are, and it's a possibility, we are headed for a new lockdown. So, it's a dangerous moment for some states.
