Trump: Fake News And Saudi Arabia & Russia Arguing Over Oil The Reasons For “Market Drop”

President Trump may not “watch” the stock market, but he’s got something to say about it this morning…

(Silver Doctors Editors) President Trump says he doesn’t watch the stock market (bold added for emphasis).

President Donald Trump downplayed the stock market’s Tuesday losses as “peanuts” when compared to both the economic importance of striking a favorable trade deal with China and the market’s gains since his election.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average “was about 16,000 or 15,000 and now it’s almost at 30,000,” Trump said an international NATO summit in London. “It’s going to be at 30,000.”

“If the stock market goes up or down: I don’t watch the stock market. I watch jobs. Jobs are what I watch,” he added. Today’s move is “peanuts compared to — We have picked up record numbers so that’s OK. That’s the way I feel.”

And while he may not be watching it, he does have something to say about it.

And no, it has nothing to do with Covid-19 (coronavirus)
