Because of these unconventional trade policies of President Donald Trump the stock market is heating up. Now as we know that stocks were down when President Donald Trump just announced that 5% tariff on all exports to the United States from Mexico some weeks ago. The Stocks were downgraded after this statement last Friday. Now we got more from President as he also released a statement that was that He would add more tariffs on China as well if they didn’t attend the G-20 summit meeting, which is in Japan at the end of the month. Investors still give a bet on this Tariff man for now.
