In a drastic market sell-off, the Dow Jones Industrials plummeted over 1,300 points in two days.
Donald Trump loves to point to the stock market as proof of his success as president.
I’ll be looking for the tweets where he owns this…
The Dow finished down 546 points Thursday after closing 832 points lower on Wednesday https://t.co/mx1opEePuI pic.twitter.com/96hn19sA9u

I don’t own or understand stocks.
We are a lower middle class family on a strict, paycheck-to-paycheck budget.
I budget $35 for gas each payday.
Today, I paid $45.
Last week’s grocery bill was $30 higher than we’re used to paying.
How about you ask me how the economy is?

The DOW dropped by 800 points today. Cars are more expensive because steel is more expensive. Ford Motors are laying off 24,000 employees due to Trump’s trade. Gas is $3 average nationally. But Trump is making America Great Again, amirite?

And, yes, there’s always a tweet. This didn’t age well, did it?
