Description

President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump have tested positive for the coronavirus, prompting further economic and political uncertainty just 32 days before Election Day. Former FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb says the President is likely to recover, but “the risk is still high.” CNBC’s Eamon Javers breaks down the whirlwind of Covid contact tracing currently underway at the White House, as well as the domestic and global political implications of the diagnoses. The House passed the $2.2 trillion Democratic coronavirus stimulus bill Thursday night, but Republicans oppose the package and bipartisan discussion continues. Plus, 661,000 jobs were created in September, a disappointing number in the last Jobs Friday before November 3rd. CNBC’s Jim Cramer joins Joe Kernen, Andrew Ross Sorkin, and Melissa Lee to discuss the many factors contributing to market movements this week.
