President Trump's aides said he lied about calls from China in order to manipulate the markets, according to CNN. Wow.

Trump lied to the public to influence the stock market. “Instead, two officials said Trump was eager to project optimism that might boost markets, and conflated comments from China's vice premier with direct communication from the Chinese.”
