Trump's Caribbean mansion in Irma's path of destruction

Luxury Retreats

President Trump owns a multi-million dollar, beach-front mansion named le Château des Palmiers on the Caribbean island of St. Martin — and it's directly in the path of Category 5 Hurricane Irma, according to the Miami Herald. Trump is trying to sell the 11-bedroom mansion, which he owns via a trust to avoid conflicts of interest. The selling price dropped from from $28 million to $16.9 million last month.

Remember, Trump also owns several other properties in Florida, including the "Winter White House" Mar-a-Lago, which could sustain damage from the hurricane.

WHO won't call coronavirus a pandemic as cases spread

Data: The Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins, the CDC, and China's Health Ministry. Note: China numbers are for the mainland only and U.S. numbers include repatriated citizens.

The World Health Organization will not yet call the coronavirus a pandemic, claiming that needs across affected countries are too varied and the classification would increase fear, per a briefing Monday.

The big picture: As South Korea and Italy stepped up emergency measures in efforts to thwart the spread of the virus, WHO expressed concern about infections with no clear link to China. COVID-19 has killed at least 2,620 people and infected almost 80,000 others, with all but 27 deaths occurring in mainland China.
