A major part of the worry in markets is that so many industries could be affected by the coronavirus outbreak.

Driving the news: President Trump has pledged to help the airline industry, and the administration’s $1 trillion proposed rescue plan includes $300 billion for small businesses, $50 billion for the airline industry and $150 billion to prop up hotels and other sectors.

  • But a deepening mass of industries, from malls to local transit systems, have been clamoring for their share of government aid in recent days.

Who's asking now:

  • Manufacturing: The National Association of Manufacturers is seeking $1.4 trillion in loans for manufacturers and small businesses, per a statement on Wednesday.
  • Restaurants: The National Restaurant Association said Wednesday it is seeking more than $350 billion in block grants, loans and insurance.
  • Malls: U.S. shopping centers are asking the federal government to cover business interruptions so the industry's repayment of up to $1 trillion in unsecured and secured debt is not at risk, the International Council of Shopping Centers said in a memo to Congress on Tuesday.
  • New York City's transit system: The New York Times reports that the MTA is looking for $4 billion.

Scoop: How the White House is trying to trap leakers

President Trump's chief of staff, Mark Meadows, has told several White House staffers he's fed specific nuggets of information to suspected leakers to see if they pass them on to reporters — a trap that would confirm his suspicions. "Meadows told me he was doing that," said one former White House official. "I don't know if it ever worked."

Why it matters: This hunt for leakers has put some White House staffers on edge, with multiple officials telling Axios that Meadows has been unusually vocal about his tactics. So far, he's caught only one person, for a minor leak.

At least 11 Republican congressional nominees have publicly supported or defended the QAnon conspiracy theory movement or some of its tenets — and more aligned with the movement may still find a way onto ballots this year.

Why it matters: Their progress shows how a fringe online forum built on unsubstantiated claims and flagged as a threat by the FBI is seeking a foothold in the U.S. political mainstream.
