Can you guess the exact time that Trump spoke?

In case you still can't guess what happened, let me give you another clue.

Stocks tumbled Friday as the U.S.-China trade war took a sharper turn, with President Donald Trump saying he’s ordering American companies to start looking for “an alternative to China,” while readying additional measures after Beijing imposed retaliatory tariffs on imports of U.S. goods.

So what's missing from this story? Let's check with Bloomberg.

Trump added that he “hereby ordered” American companies to start looking for alternatives to making products in China. It wasn’t immediately clear what Trump meant, as the president doesn’t have the legal authority to force such corporate decisions.

Is anyone here still under the impression that Trump isn't a total idiot?

Bonus Round: Guess when Trump spoke?

Trump is focused on one thing and only one thing - putting off the recession until after next year's election.

he's one vindictive son of a bitch. He started playing
Apprentice with China w/out realizing he couldn't fire
Xi.

How Pelosi and Chuckie lets him get away w/murder in
every sense of the word is just as idiotic.

The 546 mostly elected officials need to all go into
the dustbin of history.

but American manufacturers could just reopen their American factories and rehire American workers, but that wouldn't stroke their egos like they claim that they're going to stop doing. Trump of all people should have realized that was going to happen.
Warning - it's called extortion. Gangsters gonna do what gangsters do. The same will happen to Bernie, or Liz, anyone but a corruptocrat pawn who won't play along.
