Part of me wonders if Trump's trade war dropping the dow was somehow related to this. Did Trump finally piss off the rich who truly run the GOP and their media propaganda outlets?
Perhaps the other way round. He claimed to have spoken to the Chinese, a claim they quickly refuted. According to an article I found (and then lost) online it was a pure fabrication intended to boost the Dow back up. Did he really think that would work?

Of course he did. What am I saying?
