Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Through his philanthropic organization, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Gates revealed that he was funding several efforts in partnership with other companies and countries to "save months, because every month counts." "Our early money can accelerate things," Gates told The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. "Of all the vaccine constructs, the seven most promising of those, even though we'll end up picking at most two of them, we're going to fund factories for all seven, and just so that we don't waste time in serially saying, Okay, which vaccine works?' And then building the factory."

He should get another one. But they are kind of like the Cracker Jack prize now.

Frankly Jared and Trump should be all over him begging for help. But he's pretty Liberal... I don't see any Trump money being put forth into the cause...

The Trump Organization is broke. They're negotiating with their banks to delay/defer debt payments and they're also talking to the various municipalities where they have leases on land for golf clubs and resorts, seeking to delay/defer lease payments. They've even put their lease for the old US Post Office in Washington, where they have their DC hotel, up for sale. Trump's wealth, contrary to what he might like people to believe, is not based on the value of his assets but rather on the cash flow generated by those assets, because those assets are either highly leveraged or they're just leased or worst yet, they're someone else's property with just Trump's name on it, for which he collects a fee. As the cash drys-up, so does the viability of his business model. He could very well fall into bankruptcy if this crisis continues into summer. In fact, he may choose to go the bankruptcy route just to avoid paying back the banks. The problem is that those bank loans may have been baked by people whom you don't want to try and screw, and I don't mean just the mafia, but perhaps a few Russian oligarchs as well. If things start to fall apart, we may not need to wait to see his tax returns to learn who he really owes his ass to.
