President Donald Trump on Saturday argued that the stock markets will crash if he loses the 2020 campaign to former Vice President Joe Biden.
Trump argued that Biden wants to raise taxes by 3 trillion dollars, which was in parenthesis to indicate it was a direct quote, but a source was not cited.
“Actually, it will be much more than that, and much of it on nonsense. Markets and your 401k’s will CRASH. Jobs will disappear!” Trump warned.
The president, who went golfing after enhanced unemployment insurance expired, was blasted for his tweet. Here’s some of what people were saying:
You already made the jobs disappear, sweetie. pic.twitter.com/AqXPev5Xc7

Disappear more than the 14.7 million jobs lost under your administration?

You are not even a strongman, too weak. You are a heckler of your own government who promotes medical conspiracy theories on Twitter. You play no constructive role in either the management and containment of Covid -19 or in the negotiation of an economic rescue plan in Congress. https://t.co/TzmwCQN8DE

Mudslinging, half-truths and a clash of cultures: Here are 7 things to look for in tonight’s Trump-Biden debate
Well, we can be sure tonight’s debate will be sarcastic, insulting and lively – and a fact-checker’s heaven, starting with why Donald Trump hasn't paid any income taxes recently.
Donald Trump is reported to have spent his prep time coming up with one-line zingers particularly aimed at his opponent’s family and mental acuity, even as Joe Biden seeks to lay blame for coronavirus and economic problems on Trump. Still, the whole event sets up as a clash of cultures more than any debate about who stands where on issues, a showdown of sorts about what sort of country we want.
Donald Trump says Fox News’ Chris Wallace ‘will be controlled by the radical left’ moderating first debate with Joe Biden
Chris Wallace, the Fox News anchor who will moderate the first presidential debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden, is a veteran newsman who has a reputation for playing it straight at a network where the opinion hosts skew to the right.
Wallace, a youthful-looking 72 years old, is the son of legendary "60 Minutes" reporter Mike Wallace, who was known for his pugnacious interviews on the CBS show.
The younger Wallace may not be quite as combative as his late father, but he does not shy away from confrontation.
That includes taking on Trump at a Rupert Murdoch-owned news network that critics have accused of being a cheerleader for the Republican president.
Trump promised workers new manufacturing jobs — here’s how he abandoned them instead
Robert B. "Bull" Bulman stood up to FreightCar America because of the poor pay and hazardous working conditions at its Cherokee, Alabama, factory. But the company savagely retaliated with threats to close the plant and relocate to Mexico.
Then, after thwarting the union drive, FreightCar America opted to offshore those 500 jobs anyway in a greedy gambit to exploit low wages and weak laws south of the border.
Although Donald Trump won the White House with a vow to reinvigorate a manufacturing base essential for America's future, he failed to stanch the torrent of U.S. corporations absconding to countries with abysmal working conditions and lax environmental regulations.
