    Dow surges through the 25,000 barrier...

    ...in a downward direction.

    Due mainly to our Idiot in Chief's dubious tweets

    Dow drops over 500 points after Trump says U.S. companies must look for ‘alternative to China’

    Nothing like an illegal order to throw the markets into turmoil just ahead of annual summit of the top seven economies in the world.

    Our canola farmers are finding new markets in Europe for their product, since china blocked our exports. Hopefully they do not need to go back to china. karma can be a bitch.
    I admire china because their basic dictatorship is allowing them to actually turn their economy around on a dime.

    Would you say this past week, which has been gaffe after gaffe for trump, is beginning to hurt his re-election chances?

    No.

    8 minutes to close and Dow is nosediving. Near 700 point loss now.

    Like I posted here before, I've never voted in my whole life, and I'm 48-years-old. But I'm going to vote this year against Trump no matter who his opponent is.

    This madness needs to stop.

    All China has to do is put a few more tariffs on and sell some US dollars between now and the Election and Trump will implode.

    I think going down below 25,000 will happen but it will take another month or so.

    New tariffs...

    Goods previously taxed at 25% will be 30% as of 10/1 and goods previously taxed at 10% will be 15% as of 9/1.

    Excellent!!!

    This limp dick cost Canada over $15B+ over the past 2 years between his tariffs on steel and aluminum plus his fake allegations against a Chinese executive that will never be prosecuted yet we had to detain her to make us China’s target.

    Let the pain now be felt against the dumbass Americans who elected him.

    Maybe you will wake up from your gun sniffing high to not elect the moron again.

    Trump imploded a long time ago, on a personal level. He's clearly unhinged, and has no idea what's he's doing.

    China will never cave IMO, and all this asshat is doing is negative things to the American economy with his BS tweets and tariffs. He won't win like he wants to, and meanwhile he's just counter-productive, to put it mildly. He'll tweet his way to bring America to recession and drag down the economy if people let him do it.

    He has no business being President. I've never seen anyone be so inept at it...not even close.

    Hopefully, there is a little more than a year to his tenure. I'll do my part about it, which is no much.

    The worst thing is that he really thinks his reactions and inflammatory nonsensical rhetoric is going to be effective.

    His "ordering" US companies to get out China is just one more example of Trump's whole twisted persona. He really does think that acting like a Mafia Mob Boss is desirable and shows how "strong" he is.

    Of course, he's WAY too stupid to be a Mafia Boss. He makes Fredo look like Einstein. And he's too weak and narcissistic to realize that HE is the problem.

    Why do the Republicans let him do stupid **** like this. They could stop all this nonsense in one afternoon. ALL of the Trump's tariffs are borderline illegal. Mitch has broken the country by enabling the Mad King.
