With Monday’s market crash, Republican presidential candidate and businessman Donald Trump called on Americans to heed his warnings about China and “Vote Trump.”
“As I have long stated, we are so tied in with China and Asia that their markets are now taking the U.S. market down,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Get smart U.S.A.”
“Markets are crashing – all caused by poor planning and allowing China and Asia to dictate the agenda. This could get very messy! Vote Trump,” he added.
Monday, after the opening bell the the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell more than 1,000 points due to concerns about China’s economy. The Dow recovered from the initial plunge throughout the day but not before giving investors a scare.
Trump, who has repeatedly warned about China’s influence during his campaign, reiterated his concerns in a video posted on Instagram.
“I’ve been telling everyday for a long time: China’s taking our jobs, they’re taking our money. Be careful they’ll bring us down. You have to know what you’re doing. ‘We have nobody that has a clue,” Trump said in the video.
