Stock futures take another plunge again while Trump addresses the nation Sunday

Published

The Dow Jones futures fell again as President Donald Trump was addressing the nation Sunday evening.

The president tried to reassure Americans by saying that everything was fine, and it would all be over soon, but it isn’t exactly the truth.

When asked if he would extend the 15 days he told Americans to self-isolate, Trump said he hoped he wouldn’t have to, but said he might. It’s expected that other states and large municipalities will be forced to do shelter-in-place lockdowns similar to that of New York and California.

“Dow Jones Industrial Average futures fell more than 900 points, or 5%, to hit their’ limit down’ level. S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 futures were also down around 5%. Downside limits to futures contracts are implemented to ensure orderly market behavior,” CNBC reported Sunday evening. “U.S. crude futures also slid by more than 4%, adding to last week’s massive losses.”

Team Trump ‘running for cover’ after attempt to crack down on protests results in ‘humiliation’: conservative columnist

Published

on

Writing in the Washington Post this Wednesday, columnist Jennifer Rubin writes that the "tear-gassing of peaceful protesters, the debasement of St. John’s Episcopal Church, the wholly inappropriate participation of the defense secretary and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in the goose step across Lafayette Square" were actually President Trump's way of compensating for reports that he retreated to an underground bunker when protesters got close to the White House.

Rubin points to Trump's claim that he went to the bunker for an "inspection." But according to Defense Secretary Mark Esper, he had no idea where Trump and the rest of his entourage were going.
