“President Donald Trump appears to have sent the stock market into a dive with a few flicks of his fingers, as the Dow Jones Industrial Average plunged over 200 points in just five minutes following a series of unhinged tweets attacking China and Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell.
At 10:57 Friday morning, Trump posted a tweet in which he asked “who is our bigger enemy, Jay Powell or Chairman Xi?”
Then two minutes later, Trump posted a series of tweets ranting against China in which he said, among other things, that “We don’t need China and, frankly, would be far better off without them,” and that American companies are “hereby ordered to immediately start looking for an alternative to China.”
