More Trump disruption this morning as he sends a carrier group to wave the big stick at Iran (which was the main player in the Gaza Israel rocket exchanges this weekend) and he tells China they’re in for more tariffs if they don’t come to a trade agreement pronto. Markets slump.

Joe Biden scaring Dems. His campaign is shaping up as a repeat of Hillary’s.

Hillary says the election was stolen from her.

Trump says his first two years was stolen from him (by the Mueller investigation) and he thinks he should get a two year extension. Funny.
