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?
