You can definitely tell that the White House thinks this will be received well, given that Trump waited until after markets closed https://t.co/GFoYtV9xWM

Little known fact: the president of the United States may be unable to hereby order private companies to do anything but the chosen one and the King of Israel do actually have that authority so the joke is on us.

If Obama had done any *one* of the bat-crap crazy things POTUS did just *today*, the Republicans would have lost their shit. McConnell would be waving the Constitution around and Tom Cotton would be getting into camo and waiting for the Red Guards to storm Little Rock. https://t.co/SbAgNrg9Zr

#Russia's state TV: Dep. Dean of World Politics at Moscow's State University:
"Unfortunately, Trump didn't reach the level of Abraham Lincoln & didn't drive the U.S. to civil war. That's sad. Hopefully, he'll become Herbert Hoover and at least drive them into a Great Depression." pic.twitter.com/rc5I9UYXxZ

The only good news is Trump will do something horrifically embarrassing at G7 this weekend to distract from his trade war before the markets open on Monday.
