Since the stock market has crashed and is now under where former President Barack Obama left it when he exited office in 2017, Eric Trump is being roasted on Twitter for urging Americans to buy stocks in a tweet that he has humiliatingly had to delete.
Just after Senate Republicans were briefed on just how bad the coronavirus pandemic could get and the damage it would wreak on the economy, President Donald Trump’s dunce son Eric Trump took to Twitter to insist that the stock market is strong and urged Americans to buy into it even as several GOP senators rushed to sell.
It’s entirely possible that many Trump supporters did what Eric told them to do.
The problem is that the stock market took a nosedive not long afterward because of his daddy’s terrible response to the pandemic, which has infected over 35,000 in the United States and had killed over 400, all while shutting down businesses.
To date, the stock market has fallen so much that all the gains made during Trump’s presidency have been erased and the market has dropped below where it stood on the day Obama left office.
When Obama stepped down in January 2017, the Dow Jones stood at 19,827 points. The Dow currently stands at 18,644.
Anyway, the bad stock market news humiliated Eric so much that he deleted the tweet, and now social media users are mocking him by reminding him of it complete with screen captures that will last forever.
The Dow has fallen about 7,000 points, roughly 28% of its total value, since investing genius Eric Trump tweeted this. pic.twitter.com/ezYwQ0jLav

Hey folks don’t take finance advise from a Trump son. Eric told you to buy when you know his daddy told him the real truth–SELL. pic.twitter.com/ysu0n2E5Br

It’s no coincidence Eric Trump tweeted out his opinion what a great time it was to buy stocks 3 weeks ago on February 28. Which is now mysteriously missing from his Twitter feed https://t.co/o0EfCJK8YG

Turns out Eric Trump was not correct https://t.co/AJk2588DRZ

Eric Trump deleted this tweet so we printed out huge copies of it and posted them around Brooklyn. I think he’ll appreciate it… let’s see if I’m right… pic.twitter.com/vPpvSN5v0C

Here’s the now-deleted tweet Eric #Trump posted on 2/28/20 after his father & admin officials had been briefed on the #coronavirus threat; before the public knew; and while GOP Senators—and possibly the Trump/Kushner family—were busy selling off stock before the crash: pic.twitter.com/W8u4Ct2W6D

Eric Trump is clearly not a good businessman, nor is he a stock market guru. He should be ashamed of himself for pretending otherwise.
