Wilbur Ross Says Coronavirus Outbreak Could Bring Back Jobs to the U.S.

Kenya Evelyn, reporting for The Guardian:

The US commerce secretary, Wilbur Ross, said in an interview on Thursday that the coronavirus outbreak could bring back jobs to America.

In controversial comments on morning TV, Ross remarked that the deadly illness that has broken out in China and is spreading internationally could lead to job growth for businesses in the US and Mexico. He was speaking during a segment on Fox Business Network.

Ross began by saying he did not “want to talk about a victory lap over a very unfortunate, very malignant disease” before discussing the potential economic benefits of the virus.

Ross is, at heart, every bit the ghoul he looks like. Kakistocracy: government by the worst people.
