Trump “orders” US companies to leave China, also “orders” USPS to search all packages from China for drugs. Markets plunge.

From The Independent:

Donald Trump has issued an “order” to US companies to withdraw from China, as he suggested his own appointment as Federal Reserve chairman was a greater threat to the economy than Chinese leader Xi Jinping.

The president also said he was “ordering” Fed Ex, Amazon, UPS and the US Postal Service to begin searching for fentanyl in all packages from China.
