Stock Market Today With Jim Cramer: Stay Away From Cannabis

Jim Cramer discusses the stock market today including Trump's press conference discussing China, Marvell's excellent quarter and the future of cannabis stocks.

Stocks in the Dow Jones, Nasdaq, and S&P 500 we're mixed all day as the stock market tries to close out another crazy week. President Trump has been at the center of the madness this week when Twitter put a warning label on his tweets sharing misinformation. Trump had another warning label put on a tweet after Twitter declared his tweet about responding to the protests in Minneapolis was glorifying violence. The part of the tweet in question was "...after the looting starts, the shooting starts" and Trump tweeted an explanation today.

TheStreet's Katherine Ross discussed today's breaking news in the stock market on StreetLightning with Jim Cramer. Cramer discusses Trump's press conference discussing China, Marvell having an excellent quarter and the future of cannabis stocks.

President Trump's Press Conference on China

President Trump ended the U.S.'s relationship with the World Health Organization (WHO). Trump also discussed the current situation in Hong Kong and the rising tension China is creating.
