    Stocks plunged on Friday after President Donald Trump ordered that U.S. manufacturers find alternatives to their operations in China. Apple led the way lower.


    The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed 623.34 points lower, or 2.4% at 25,628.90. The S&P 500 slid 2.6% to close at 2,847.11. The Nasdaq Composite dropped 3% to end the day at 7,751.77. The losses brought the Dow’s decline for August to more than 4%.


    The major indexes also posted weekly losses for the fourth straight time. The Dow dropped about 1% this week while the S&P 500 pulled back 1.4%. The Nasdaq lost 1.8%.


    Can Trumpy do that??? Well it hasn't
    stopped him.

    Trump -> Chi-Coms "I'm not kidding."
    May the FORCE be with you!

    What can I say ... Dow up or down ... Mr. ABC and I both trust (and voted for Trump as a savvy business man and will again)

    Plus, we put our faith in "Edward Jones" to handle all else for us when and *if* it should come to "crunch" time.

    Edited to add re Trump ...

    We truly believe that he loves our country as we do and wants for what's best for us and the future!

    Psychology moves the markets. This is an attempt by the media to move them in an unnatural direction to injure the President's re-election chances. I believe it is short term and doomed to failure.
