What Concerns Jim Cramer and Where He's Finding Opportunity Wednesday

In Wednesday's market breakdown with Jim Cramer, Cramer talks President Trump, the coronavirus, Pfizer, Lyft, Alibaba and more.

So far, so good for the markets this week following positive vaccine news from Pfizer. 

But the positive vaccine news from Pfizer  (PFE) - Get Pfizer Inc. Report also saw investors turning more toward shares of manufacturers and energy companies amid bets for a swifter reopening of the economy.

However, President Donald J. Trump's refusal to concede the election and what many are calling a second wave of coronavirus cases continue to give Jim Cramer cause for concern Wednesday. 

"You have to worry that the President seems to be so adamant that he's not going to get kicked out," Cramer said. 

Cramer said Trump has Attorney General William Barr and the Senate on his side and will continue to do anything possible going forward to invalidate the election. 

"The route to defeat the will of the people is not easy ...[but] people have to be aware this could happen," Cramer said. 

Cramer said investors should treat any negative market impact from the President's election disputes as buying opportunities.
