President Donald Trump baffled reporters on Tuesday morning with what appeared to be his shortest press conference, to date.
After giving reporters a brief "two minutes notice" according to CNN White House correspondent Kaitlan Collins, the president, along with Vice President Mike Pence, made his way to the White House briefing room on Tuesday. Once at the podium, he opted to boast about the Dow Jones Industrial Average hitting 30,000 despite the ups and downs the stock market has seen due to the pandemic. Trump had previously predicted that the stock market would tank if Joe Biden were elected president, as he has been.
