New Hampshire primary didn’t surprise many political analysts. Bernie Sanders won the primary and Pete Buttigieg placed second.

Mr. Biden left New Hampshire for South Carolina before the New Hampshire vote. Mr. Biden believes the black vote in that state will propel him to the top again.
But Mr. Biden took a direct hit from Mr. Trump when his defense team made Joe and his son look like bad guys during the impeachment trial. Biden claims he won’t let the president bring him down. But it looks like the damage done by Trump is enough to send Joe to the political showers.

But China doesn’t have the virus debacle or the Canadian fiasco under control. Canadian exports to China dropped dramatically after Canadian customs officers arrested Huawei’s CFO Meng Wanzhou in December 2018. Chinese officials claim business with Canada will continue to suffer until Meng returns to China. Plus, China told Trudeau he can forget about the two Canadians in custody if he bans Huawei from building parts of his 5G network.
