What A Day - September 10, 2020 - 21:48

Recorded interviews of Donald Trump by Bob Woodward show he understood the threat of coronavirus in February, while he insisted in public it would “disappear” and was no worse than the seasonal flu.

High temperatures resulting from climate change have set the perfect conditions for this year's unprecedented rapid scale and spread of fires.
