This Monday, a stock sell-off picked up steam and sent shockwaves throughout global markets. According to reports, the Dow Jones Industrial Average saw its biggest one-day point drop in history and the S&P 500 had its worst day since 2011.
It all took place just as President Trump was giving a speech about the economy, and crackpot conspiracy theorist Alex Jones thinks that’s no coincidence. According to Jones, the “Deep State” is at play.
In a tweet from Monday afternoon, Jones wondered if the market drop was a “false flag” organized by the “big banks.”
“Should we investigate Goldman Sachs?!” Jones tweeted, completely missing the irony since Trump stockpiled the federal government with Goldman Sachs members.
Is the historic -1500 DOW drop a false flag by the big banks? Should we investigate Goldman Sachs?!

Jones later expanded his thoughts on his show. In a video flagged by Right Wing Watch, he said the drop was evidence of “economic warfare” being waged against Trump.
“This is a big, big deal and again, this is economic warfare, undoubtedly, against this president,” Jones said.
“They’ve been trying as hard as they can. There he is touring the country, getting thousands of factories back, and now this happens. You better believe something this big is meant to embarrass him on his big economic tour he’s involved in.”
