So, what's going on?
Monday morning, the Chinese yuan hit its lowest in a decade, when it breached 7-per-dollar.
The yuan had not fallen below that level since May 2008.
The People's Bank of China let the so-called on-shore yuan fall past the psychologically important threshold of 7.00 against the greenback in early Monday trading, citing in a statement "unilateralism and protectionism", as well as the expectation of additional tariffs from the United States, reported TheStreet's Martin Baccardax.
President Trump then took to Twitter and said that the weakening yuan was "currency manipulation."
