In other news, the New York Times reports that Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, advised him during the early days of the coronavirus pandemic that the media was exaggerating the threat.

Meanwhile, the European Union has voted to close their borders for the next 30 days at least.

Finally, China is expelling American journalists in retaliation for the Trump regime's recent decision to expel Chinese journalists.

BEIJING (Reuters) - China announced early on Wednesday that it was retaliating against U.S. restrictions on Chinese journalists, with actions that include rescinding the press credentials of American correspondents with the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and Washington Post.

The move escalates a tit-for-tat between China and the United States over resident foreign media that saw Washington this month slash the number of Chinese nationals permitted to work at the U.S. offices of major Chinese state-owned media outlets.
