This is not the first attempt by ChrysCapital to make a comeback of sorts in its pharma portfolio post a partial or complete exit. In 2015, ChrysCapital exited Mankind Pharma by selling its 11 percent stake to Capital International for $214 million.

Consider for a moment all of the other designs Twitter could have chosen. It could have used a strike-through, crossing out Trump’s message to nullify it, but leaving it legible for people to read. It could have blurred the words, so you couldn’t read them at all, but you’d know a tweet was there.

Among those hardest hit are the self-employed artisans and weavers, dependent on seasonal retail sales and direct orders from global fashion brands. As Dusanj points out, “In the global fashion industry, brands typically pay their suppliers weeks or even months after delivery.
