trump(R)s: Manipulating the stock market? As posted in 2018 and seems more obvious now.

https://www.democraticunderground.com/100210417717

Thanks, Fred Sanders.
Is Trump using Twitter economic announcements to manipulate the stock market and make
millions for his friends and family?

Every wild swing in stocks over the past few weeks has been caused this way.

Tariffs on steels and aluminum! Stocks tank.

Well, just China. 12th on the importer list. Stocks soar!

Huge new tariffs on China goods of all kinds. Stocks tank.

No worries, opening talks with China on trade in general, tariffs negotiable. Stocks soar!

Am I crazy to accuse a known mobster of using a once respected Bully Pulpit for profit?

I think not!


I was just thinking along those lines as the peeResident announces one thing and hours/days later rescinds it. Just imagine if some friends/cronies (Wilbur, are you there?) heard about the planned announcements and retractions.

That type of false advertising is what theoretically got poor Elon Musk in hot water with the SEC when he tweeted speculations.

1. BINGO.


Been saying this for over a year, too.

Amazed I'm not seeing this on the front pages every day.

2. Some newscasters, probably Velshi and Ruhle, have pointed that out, but not recently.
