REPORT: Trump “Furious” About Stock Market Tumble

The Washington Post reports:

Trump is highly concerned about the market and has encouraged aides not to give predictions that might cause further tremors. On Wednesday morning, he announced he would be holding a press conference at 6 p.m. about the coronavirus.

In recent days, Trump has devoted the majority of his public statements to slamming Democrats or complaining about the criminal justice system, only recently pivoting to the coronavirus.  He has sought to repeatedly downplay the potential impact will be on the United States.

Privately, Trump has become furious about the stock market’s slide, according to two people familiar with the president’s thinking, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to share internal details.

At this writing the Dow is down another 133 points.
