A review of public statements by Trump administration officials urging confidence in the markets as the coronavirus spread reveals a stark contrast with the private behaviour of some GOP lawmakers.

While the president and his top economic adviser late February were urging Americans to show confidence in the stock market and invest as the coronavirus spread, at least two GOP senators had already privately dumped stocks — after receiving classified briefings on the damage likely to be caused by the disease.

"As #coronavirus hit, Kudlow kept saying stocks were cheap. If you had listened, you'd have lost 30% of your money But senators like Loeffler and Burr (who sold up to $1.7 million in stock before the crash) aren't like you and me. They get inside information - and trade on it," tweeted Chris Lu, Deputy Labor Secretary in the Obama administration.
