Washington: President Donald Trump, gearing up for the official start of his 2020 campaign, warned that the U.S. would face an epic stock market crash if he’s not re-elected. “If anyone but me takes over," Trump told his 61 million Twitter followers on Saturday, “there will be a Market Crash the likes of which has not been seen before!" He also tweeted in February that “had the opposition party" won in 2016, “the Stock Market would be down at least 10,000 points by now" -- an unprovable assertion. And in January Trump suggested that if “you want to see a Stock Market Crash, Impeach Trump." The more narrow DJIA, whose performance Trump likes to reference, last peaked more than eight months ago, on October 3.
