It‘s now up to President Trump to rescue the stock market from ending 2018 in the red

But then the market bounced on a Wall Street Journal report that said where the U.S. would hold off of further tariffs until spring, to allow for negotiations.">(function($){$(document).ready(function(){});})(jQuery);
