Navy leader calls fired carrier captain 'naive' or 'stupid'

By LOLITA C. BALDOR and ROBERT BURNS
an hour ago

WASHINGTON (AP) — In an extraordinary broadside punctuated with profanity, the Navy’s top leader accused the fired commander of the COVID-stricken USS Theodore Roosevelt of being “too naive or too stupid” to be in charge of an aircraft carrier. He delivered the criticism to sailors who had cheered the departing skipper last week.

Acting Navy Secretary Thomas Modly harshly criticized Capt. Brett E. Crozier — and by implication those among the crew who had vocally supported him — in a lengthy and passionate speech aboard the ship, which is pier-side at Guam. Crew members are being taken off the ship to be tested for the coronavirus. At least 155 of the 4,865 members of the crew have tested positive, and the carrier is sidelined.

While skewing Crozier, Modly also admonished the crew. He suggested that by cheering Crozier when he departed the carrier last week, they were overlooking their most basic duty to defend U.S. interests.

Trump trade official claims he's just as qualified to discuss medicine as Dr. Fauci

By Emily Singer -April 6, 2020 11:45 AM

Trump trade policy adviser Peter Navarro has been pushing the use of an experimental COVID-19 treatment. He is not a doctor.

A Trump trade adviser on Monday claimed to be a reliable source on an experimental drug treatment for COVID-19 because he has a doctorate in economics and can read studies.

The comment came during an interview on CNN, when anchor John Berman asked Trump adviser Peter Navarro why he's pushing the use of the anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19.

Donald Trump and members of his administration such as Navarro have pushed for the use of the drug, even though doctors say the medicine is unproven and urge caution in adopting it for use against the coronavirus.

What are your qualifications to weigh in on medicines more than Dr. Anthony Fauci? Why should we listen to you and not Dr. Fauci?" Berman asked Navarro in live interview Monday morning.

Government confirms 'severe' lack of tests after Trump said 'anyone' could get one

By Dan Desai Martin -April 6, 2020 2:51 PM

A lack of testing has been an issue since the coronavirus was first reported in the United States.

Hospitals across the country are "unable to keep up with COVID-19 testing demands," according to a report released Monday by the Office of Inspector General at the Department of Health and Human Services.

The report, based on a survey of hospitals conducted from March 23 through 27, said, "Hospitals reported that severe shortages of testing supplies and extended waits for test results limited hospitals' ability to monitor the health of patients and staff."

A lack of testing has been an issue since the coronavirus was first reported in the United States.

On Saturday, a report from the Washington Post said the Trump administration's "most consequential failure" was its inability to design, manufacture, and distribute a coronavirus test. Inadequate testing meant that public health experts were unable to map where the virus was spreading.

Mississippi governor secretly designates April 'Confederate Heritage Month'

By Josh Israel -April 6, 2020 4:48 PM

Gov. Tate Reeves is facing criticism over his slow response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves quietly signed a proclamation on Friday designating April "Confederate Heritage Month."

Reeves is currently facing heavy criticism over his delayed response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Reeves' proclamation was posted by the Sons of Confederate Veterans, according to a report on Sunday by the Jackson Free Press, but did not appear to be publicized elsewhere. His office did not immediately respond to an inquiry about the designation.

WHEREAS, State law declares the the last Monday of April as Confederate Memorial Day, a legal holiday to honor those who served the Confederacy, and WHEREAS, as we honor all who lost their lives in this war, it is important for all Americans to reflect upon our nation's past," the proclamation read.

U.S. small-business rescue loan program enters fourth day plagued by technical problems

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. government’s $349 billion small-business rescue program entered its fourth day on Monday, plagued by ongoing technology and processing problems that are delaying disbursements to businesses hurt by the novel coronavirus, according to industry groups, bankers and an email seen by Reuters.

U.S. lenders, inundated by thousands of loan applications, struggled to access the government’s technology system for processing the paperwork over the weekend, while that paperwork also changed more than once, the sources said.

“We know that your efforts have been frustrated with system issues, policy questions and slower than usual responses,” the Small Business Administration’s Regional Offices wrote to bankers on Saturday evening, according to an email seen by Reuters. “We are working to improve all of those issues,” it added.

Many lenders have had problems signing up for new user accounts with the SBA’s platform, and with unlocking or resetting passwords for existing user accounts, the email said, adding the SBA was working to unlock all of the existing user accounts in one batch.

JPMorgan CEO Dimon calls 'bad recession', mulls suspending 2020 dividend

(Reuters) - JPMorgan Chase & Co’s top boss, Jamie Dimon (JPM.N), on Monday said he sees a “bad recession” in 2020, and that the largest U.S. bank could suspend its dividend if the coronavirus crisis deepens.

Dimon, widely regarded as the face of the U.S. banking sector, is the most prominent voice on Wall Street so far to project that the economic cost of the coronavirus will not evaporate quickly, and said the bank’s earnings will be down “meaningfully in 2020.”

But, Dimon said, even in the worst case scenario, the bank is strong and will continue lending to customers and will not need any relief from the federal government.

JPMorgan’s stock was up 5% to $84.05 in morning trading.

JPMorgan could look at suspending dividends if gross domestic product were to fall by as much as 35% in the second quarter and the unemployment rate were to rise further to 14% in the fourth quarter of the year, the chief executive officer wrote in his annual letter to shareholders.

U.S. consumers fear for jobs, debt payments because of coronavirus: New York Fed survey

Source: Reuters

BUSINESS NEWS APRIL 6, 2020 / 11:12 AM / UPDATED 5 MINUTES AGO

(Reuters) - The economic toll of the coronavirus pandemic hit home for Americans last month, as consumers braced for job losses, anticipated spending cuts and grew more pessimistic about their ability to cover their bills, according to data released by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York on Monday.

Expectations worsened dramatically throughout the month, with concerns growing after the first death from COVID-19 in the United States and after the World Health Organization officially declared a pandemic and more drastic steps were taken to limit the spread of the disease.

Much of the fear was centered around job security, with more people fearing job losses as a growing number of non-essential businesses shut down across the country and residents were asked to stay at home.

Expectations that the unemployment rate will be higher one year from now increased to an average 50.9% in March - the highest since the survey launched in 2013 and up from 34.2% in February. The odds of leaving a job voluntarily over the next year dropped to 20% in March from 22.2% in February.

Inspector General Report: Our Health Care System In A 'State Of Chaos'

Politics 4/06/20 7:04am Read time: 2 minutes

Some hospitals were even out of cleaning supplies, the report found.
By Susie Madrak

Stephanie Ruhle introduced a segment with Ken Dilanian on a new internal assessment of how the Trump administration has done in helping the country's health care workers.

"Explain what is this all about. Day in and day out, we hear from the administration saying the hospitals have all that they need. At the same time, hospital workers and state governors are saying that's not the case," she said.

"Stephanie, this is a report by the inspector general of the Department of Health and Human Services. So a watchdog but within the Trump administration," Delanian said.

"And what they did was, they interviewed 324 hospital administrators in 46 states. And what they found was a health care system in a state of chaos. Totally refuting the comments by President Trump on Saturday that he said hospital administrators were thrilled with the level of supplies. This report creates a picture of dire shortages, confirming what NBC News and other outlets have reported about shortages of ventilators and masks.
