When Trump Starts Talking Tariffs - The Stock Market Adversely Reacts.....

It's down considerably now - but by next week it will bounce back.

I'm just wondering if Trump is benefiting from this and is making money off the stock market or at least tipping his family that this tariff talk is coming so that they can maybe play the market and benefit.

Is anybody watching whether Trump or his family is making money off of these tariff swings in the market? I guess I wouldn't put it past him to take advantage of his tariff talk.

3. No doubt whatsoever that this is happening.

Not just trumpfts family, but the people with direct access to his phone probably also get "heads up."

5. The Thought Occurred To Me That He May Be Tipping Off Mar-A-Lago Members......

they make a profit on his tips and then they pay him back in ever rising yearly membership fees and that is how he benefits. Everybody wins!!!!!


What do you think?

4. Yes, it may be orchestrated.

Family and cronies short the relevant stocks "on a tip" shortly before he announces tariffs. When those stocks predictably take a plunge after his announcement the grifters cash in.

Ordinarily I think the SEC or somebody would monitor this kind of suspicious activity, but that may not be true in the case of the current administration's lax enforcement.
