Donald Trump is holding yet another disastrous press conference right now, full of racial slurs, selective well wishes, and bizarre remarks about “sadistic” doctors. Sorely lacking: actual solutions. Wall Street has taken notice accordingly.
In the roughly half an hour that Donald Trump has been talking, overnight stock market trading has gone completely off a cliff. The Dow Futures plummeted so badly, a “limit down” was triggered to prevent them from falling even further. This points to the Dow Jones opening at around 18,000 points tomorrow morning, with a halt likely kicking in just minutes after the market opens.
