Early Thursday Morning in Asia, US President Donald Trump tweeted,
The Media should view this as a time of unity and strength. We have a common enemy, actually, an enemy of the World, the CoronaVirus. We must beat it as quickly and safely as possible. There is nothing more important to me than the life & safety of the United States!
Given the market is already waiting for his Oval Office address, scheduled for 01:00 GMT on Thursday, investors reacted positively to the news with WTI and the US equity futures marking mild gains by the press time.
