Trump mocks Moulton, says he may have caused selloff

United States President Donald Trump wondered in a tweet on Friday whether the Representative Seth Moulton's decision to drop out of the 2020 presidential race is the reason for today's massive selloff in the US markets.

"The Dow is down 573 points perhaps on the news that Representative Seth Moulton, whoever that may be, has dropped out of the 2020 Presidential Race!" Trump tweeted.

The Democrat from Massachusets announced earlier in the day that he would be withdrawing from next year's presidential race, launched back in April, after failing to gain traction.
