Donald Trump’s son Eric Trump claimed last month that he was a “super genius” for telling people to invest right before the market started to crash.
The younger Trump son tweeted out on February 28 that “it’s a great time to buy stocks or into your 401k.”
Shortly after that tweet, Eric Trump appeared on a radio show and claimed the following:
“I sent that tweet, the market comes back up another 700 points that day, right, and then obviously we go into yesterday, where it was up 1,300 points today,” Trump said. “I feel like a super genius right now.”
Just six days after claiming to be a “super genius,” the market crashed 1,300 points. Just a week later, the marker crashed twice more.
Eric Trump has since deleted the tweet.
I was listening to a clip of Eric Trump on the radio from March 3rd where he says he’s a “super genius” for predicting it was a great time to invest.
Saying he was “very proud of myself” for the tweet.
