Trump Says Stock Markets Will Crash If He Loses Election

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Tuesday the U.S. stock market will crash if he loses the election this year. During a trip to India, Trump told business leaders stocks will jump higher if he is re-elected, but “if I don’t win you’re going to see a crash as you’ve never seen before.” He said his administration planned to announce tax cuts for the middle class in the not too distant future.

He said Chinese President Xi Jinping was working hard on the issue. “And I think it is going to be under control … I think it is going to work out fine. We hope so,” Trump said.
