Wash. Post’s Kim: Trump’s Furious with Stock Market Crash

‘The stock market is having one of the worst Decembers in a decade’

RUSH EXCERPT:

KIM: “This is one of several political crises engulfing the Trump Administration right now. Especially the big problem for the president is, remember how often he has touted the strength of the stock market, and now that the stock market is having one of the worst Decembers in a decade, not only from his public comments but also he is really furious about it in private. He’s angry at mnuchin, this is why he privately talked about pushing Jay Powell out. On Saturday, when Steve mnuchin had that comment that there were no discussions about pushing Powell out, our reporting shows that Trump didn’t want to be the one publicly defending the fed and fed chairman there and that’s why he had mnuchin say what he did.”
