Twitter Ridicules Trump for ‘Good News’ Tweet About the Market: ‘Stock Market Is Committing Treason’

A lot of people on Twitter were not impressed with President Trump after he pretty much insisted that the recent major fluctuations in the stock market have nothing to do with him.

A short time ago, Trump issued his first public statements on the stock market since the big point drop Monday.

Several observers and analysts have noted that the recent developments indicate that the market might be in the process of stabilizing. Trump has frequently used the stock market as an indicator of his success as president, though several commentators have suggested that he should stop doing that since it’s not the most precise measure of the economy’s strength.

As it were, Trump appears to be saying that “good news” caused the market’s recent nosedives, and people are responding with ridicule and bewilderment.
