But of course. Expect Trump to tweet soon about how it’s all the obstructionist Democrats’ fault.
Today wasn’t a good day for the stock market. After experiencing a big dip on Friday when the Dow Jones took a 666-point hit, Monday ended with the Dow plunging to its lowest level of the year as it experienced the biggest one-day point drop in history.
With President Donald Trump having repeatedly touted the stock market’s historic gains since he entered office while taking credit for the continued rise of the Dow Jones, one wonders if he’ll be as willing to own the market in the advent of a major sell-off. Well, it appears that one of Trump’s biggest loyalists in media is potentially giving the president an excuse to embrace if stocks continue to drop.
Of course, Alex Jones has another theory:
Is the historic -1500 DOW drop a false flag by the big banks? Should we investigate Goldman Sachs?!
