Watch In Real Time As Stock Market Drops Due To Trump Trade Fiasco

April 2, 2018

Watch the Dow Jones tank in real time.

As of this posting time the Dow Jones is down over 500 points………The Chinese government plans to immediately impose tariffs on 128 U.S. products, including pork and certain fruits, a direct response to Trump’s recent moves to pursue numerous trade restrictions against Beijing.

If U.S. goods become more expensive in China, Chinese buyers could opt to purchase products from Europe, South America or elsewhere, though White House officials have routinely discounted the likelihood of this.

Beijing’s move could force Trump to decide whether to follow through on expansive trade restrictions he had hoped would crack down on China even if Beijing is now threatening to harm U.S. companies that rely on Asian markets for buyers.

Who said trade wars were easy and good?
