Fox News Cut Away From Donald Trump to Report on the Stock Market Drop at the Most Awkward Moment

Fox News Cut Away From Donald Trump to Report on the Stock Market Drop at the Most Awkward Moment

When even Fox News acknowledges reality.

President Donald Trump traveled to Ohio Monday to deliver a speech about the Republican tax cuts, touting economic gains under his administration, and Fox News followed to cover it live. But during his speech, Fox cut away for an important announcement.

The stock market, specifically the Dow Jones Industrial (DJI) average, took a historic turn, a historic downward turn, dropping 4.27% while Trump spoke.


Trump stated during his State of the Union speech on Tuesday that the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) continually set records under his presidency. The president frequently focuses on stock market performance as a sign of his success. However most Americans have no investments in the stock market.

However this latest record, a historic drop, does not fit Trump's narrative of unparalleled economic success since he took office. And the announcement by Fox News, preempting his speech, came at the least opportune time.

The president stated the GOP tax cuts “set off a tidal wave of good news that continues to grow every single day.” But while he made that statement, banners and pop-ups on Fox News reported the stock market steadily dropping.

The stock market already plunged 666 points on Friday. Trump, while speaking of economic gains Monday in Ohio, failed to mention anything about the stock market.

It remains to be seen if Donald Trump or Fox News will attribute the stock market plunge to the GOP tax plan or the Trump administration in the manner they assigned credit for all gains.

Iowa AG Dragged For Ironically Boasting At RNC That Republicans Put Criminals 'In Jail'

Iowa Attorney General Brenna Bird was criticized after telling the audience at the Republican National Convention that the GOP is known to "put criminals where they belong: in jail"—only to then encourage everyone to vote for convicted felon former President Donald Trump.

In May, Trump became the first former president to be convicted of felony crimes. The jury found him guilty on all 34 counts of falsifying business records to conceal hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels to illegally influence the 2016 election. His sentencing was set for July 11 but has now been delayed in the wake of a Supreme Court decision granting him sweeping immunity protections.
