Also China is now targeting companies in retaliation to higher tariffs and sanctions against Chinese companies.

Hey MORON, It is Trump's policies that has made the Dow worth what it is. You should not be investing if you are only able to have a short term view.

People that don't know how to "play" a falling market should not have their money invested. When things go down, your investments can still go up.

But hey, always fun to bash Trump for anything, right?

I don't like seeing my equities decline but I support the President because I support America and actually fighting back.

Congress, under both the GOP and the Dems, has done nothing for decades and since Trump was innaugurated that trend has continued.

Will you still feel this way when you get significant market erosion, corporate bottom lines start going south, consumer spending cools and people start losing jobs?

Yeah, because you have the bulk of your assets not already invested, right?

Nothing to say about the boom years of Trump. Market takes a dip "#ORANGEMANBAD!".

More proof TDS is a national epidemic.

Better?

The idea that the Repubs had control of the House and Senate from 2017-2019 is absurd. Way too many RINOs to get anything accomplished.
Ah the ‘No True Scotsman’ fallacy.

Pointless, too, since, RINO or not, they would have voted in lockstep with anything Republicans proposed.

I got completely out of the market last October when it was at 26704.....I am not worried about losing money myself....I am worried about the economy in general. Do you think that after China stops buying soy beans from us and starts buying from Brazil, that they will come back when Trump is gone??? Why would they??? Why would the world trust us after Trump???

By the way you know when I know I am winning the argument.....when you and people like you start calling names.

And don’t forget inflation rises.

Although, to be fair, tariffs can actually end up creating more jobs inside the USA, as consumers vote with their wallets against imported goods that are rising in price.

Stop bitching about IP theft if you are unwilling to do anything or risk anything to fix it. And while I realize this goes to China and not Mexico, it's all one in the same.
