Trump briefed on stock market sell-off -CNBC

WASHINGTON, Oct 10 (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump has been briefed on Wednesday’s stock market sell-off, CNBC reported, citing a senior official, as the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped more than 3 percent in one day and the S&P 500 marked its biggest daily decline since February.

“A senior White House official gives me this comment now: ‘This is a bull market correction. It’s probably healthy. This will pass and the US economy remains strong,” CNBC reporter Eamon Javers posted on Twitter. (Reporting by Lisa Lambert; Editing by Peter Cooney)
