Trump quips Dow dropped because of Moulton's exit from 2020 race President Trump on Friday joked about a precipitous drop in the stock market following a series of tweets lashing out at China, quipping that it was perhaps spurred by Rep. Seth Moulton (D-Mass.) dropping out of the Democratic presidential primary. "The Dow is down 573 points perhaps on the news that Representative Seth Moulton, whoever that may be, has dropped out of the 2020 Presidential Race!" Trump tweeted.
