Let's Talk Trade

Yep, we've got some new trade headlines. 

The Dow fell over 600 points at the close on Friday after the China-U.S. trade war heated up with China retaliating on tariffs and Trump tweeting that he "ordered" American companies out of China.

"The market is doing great. Our country is doing great," he said at the G-7 summit in France.

"China called last night our top trade people and said 'let's get back to the table' so we will be getting back to the table and I think they want to do something," Trump said. "They have been hurt very badly but they understand this is the right thing to do and I have great respect for it. This is a very positive development for the world."

In his morning column on Real Money, Cramer blamed the pajama traders for the Dow sinking premarket Monday.
