In a tweet Friday morning, President Donald Trump claimed that “the stock market is tanking” and called the market “rigged.”
That’s an assertion that has been making the rounds, particularly since Trump tweeted about it earlier this week.
Here’s what you need to know about stock market tanking and rigging.
Trump claims that stock market will tank, but it’s not a “rigging” act Trump said that the stock markets are “riging” because they are losing so much value.
The president’s tweet on Friday morning was the latest example of his claim that the markets are rigged against him.
The tweet said that he was “getting a lot of negative press” for the market’s decline, but that the fact that it was down by about 6 percent since his inauguration should not be a “violation of the law.”
“I am not the only one that’s watching and seeing rigged markets.
The rigged market is rigged against me.
You can see it in my stock market.
The stock market and the rigged stock market are totally rigged.
They’re rigged against the American worker.
They can’t compete with the rigged markets of other countries,” Trump said.
It’s not Trump’s only time calling the market rigged.
In January, Trump also accused the market of being “rigved” because it has been “stealing” from his businesses.
“You have to look at it, it’s rigged.
If you look at the rigged system, if you look what’s going on, if the rigged market, it has absolutely no integrity,” Trump told a crowd in Iowa.
What is rigged and why does it matter?
Trump and his supporters have long argued that the rigged-stock market system is unfair to businesses that are already struggling and that the government should be providing the financial support to those businesses.
A lot of people believe that the system is rigged because the system was created for one reason and one reason only: to favor certain business owners at the expense of others.
Trump’s tweets are a part of a broader effort by the president to cast the rigged financial system as rigged against ordinary people.
The media is largely in the wrong about rigged stock markets.
It isn’t just the president who makes these claims.
The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday that there are more than 30 companies in the Dow Jones Industrial Average that are “in serious financial trouble.”
Five of those companies are trading on the stock exchange.
Five more are trading in the stockmarket on futures markets, meaning that they have not yet reached their targets for earnings.
But these companies are not in serious financial difficulties, according to the Journal.
And, in fact, they are trading at or above their trading targets for the past 12 months.
That means that their market price for the stock is well above the price at which they would be trading at if the stock had no intrinsic value at all.
The US has one of the highest rates of stock market rigging in the world.
The Dow Jones Index, which measures the overall performance of the S&P 500, has been in the red since March 2017.
It has been trading at around 13,000 points per share since March 2016.
But the US stock market has rigged in the past, even more than its peers.
In 2011, the Dow was trading at just under 22,000, and in 2012 it was just over 23,000.
That year, the Federal Reserve even decided to buy $100 billion worth of stocks in an effort to stabilize the market.
And in the midst of the financial crisis, it took another $1 trillion to stabilize stock prices, according the New York Times.
But this isn’t a rigged market.
Trump and the media aren’t the only ones who claim rigged markets are happening.
The American people also have a vested interest in these rigged markets, and that’s why they want to see these rigged stocks and other financial assets removed from the market before the market collapses.
This week, the New Hampshire Republican Senate Majority Leader Kelly Ayotte said that “if the president’s right, it looks like rigged stock is rigged.”
The problem with rigged markets isn’t that they’re rigged, it is that they can’t even compete with fair and open markets that are not rigged.
As the WSJ article noted, the rigged world of stock markets has historically been a place where people are willing to bet against the economy to make quick profits.
“A rigged market can be a place for investors to make a quick buck, a place to get away with money laundering, and a place that allows criminals to avoid the law,” said Michael Shierholz, president of the Economic Policy Institute.
“The market is an opportunity for a lot more people to profit than it is for the rest of us.”
But rigging can be stopped.
As many have pointed out, the US has some of the most robust financial systems in the industrialized world.
Companies have to meet stringent
