Trump warns of 'market crash' if he loses in 2020
By Tal Axelrod - 06/15/19 10:40 AM EDT



President Trump asserted on Saturday there would be dire economic consequences should he lose the 2020 presidential race, leaning into his reelection slogan "Keep America Great."

“The Trump Economy is setting records, and has a long way up to go....However, if anyone but me takes over in 2020 (I know the competition very well), there will be a Market Crash the likes of which has not been seen before! KEEP AMERICA GREAT,” he tweeted.

Good grief!  I wish he would quit making threats.  What about the natural cycle of the markets?  What about world events that no one can predict?
"I believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey it laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies." -William Page

To an extent, the market levels today are predicated on taxes, interest rates, regulations and foreign policy positions of Trump's.

His statement is warning the DOW might drop with other policy makers back in power.

When Trump leaves office, he plans to resume eating babies.

There won’t be a market crash.

What about his tarriffs and trade wars which, every time he makes threats along those lines, drive the markets down? 

The markets would do better without him.

I consider that a threat.

I see it as a prediction rather than a threat. Trump can't make the market crash, that will be up to investors as they weigh the consequences of electing a communist who will destroy the private economy.
Principles matter. Words matter.

Weird, because all the other market problems, so far, were because of Jerome Powell.
I disagree.  Circle gets the square.
