Summary: Dow creeps up to another record but stocks were mostly lower on falling home sales, rising jobless claims; Target shares fall on data theft; Darden looks to put Red Lobster on ice; Carnival beats forecasts. Conway G. Gittens reports.
SteveS: Trump should actually study about US policies before just shooting off a Tweet about Taiwan that goes back to Nixon on the one China policy. China buys most of the US debt and Trump better realize he is not just going to BULLY everyone in the world. China is not a country that Trump will just push around. One China is not negotiable. Trump with his tariff threats are already going to be challenged by his own party. Tariffs have never worked only raised prices for products and cost US jobs!!!
