Announcing punitive future tariffs which cause market losses, then announcing non-existent Trade deals which propell market to make upward corrections, generated the grifter-in-chief at 1600 Pensilvania Ave reeks of insider trader mischief.

I expect another investigation is being born. The SEC needs to be on this like a duck on a June Bug.

FTA:

For generations, U.S. presidents have gone to great lengths to avoid potential conflicts of interest. When I was elected, I followed suit by placing my small business in a blind trust to assure our citizens that I would always put the country's interests ahead of my own. It's a vital presidential tradition. That's why I find it a bit curious that our new commander-in-chief has been allowed to ignore it.

For Christ's sake, you people made me get rid of my peanut farm before you let me be president.

What? Trump would never cheat to make money.

That's just ridiculous.

What nonsense will you angry Dem birds think up next?

That lied the Trump Tower meeting or he tried to bribe Putin with a penthouse suite or that he didn't pay his taxes for a decade?

Ya'll are just cray cray.

Until January, 2017 political risk was nearly nonexistent for US investors placing their money in domestic markets. That risk is now a significant factor for investors in US markets. It's one thing to be a loudmouth creepy dork know-nothing with a room full of mouth-breathing sycophants, toadies and fellow travelers. It's another to manipulate US securities markets for personal profit. Doing so is a REAL crime, with real penalties and jail time involved. If found to be true, Der Dotard and all involved WILL be forced to disgorge profits AND will go to jail. Just ask Rudy G. about the seriousness of securities-related crimes. He has some experience with that, as a former prosecutor...

and herein lies a glimmer of the problem that we, the general public, face when it comes to our elected officials.
there'll have to be an outstanding example..so glaringly obvious that it'll stand on it's own in warranting prosecution.
there'll be no investigation because if you dive into that pond you'll catch BIG fish on both sides of the aisle.
