Fox News Cuts Away from Trump Tax Speech to Report Stock Market Plunge

The Fox News Channel on Monday surprised viewers by abruptly breaking away from President Donald Trump’s speech on the economy to give some bad news about the stock market.

As Trump was in Ohio to tout the impact of the new Republican tax laws, Fox News cut away from his remarks to report that the Dow was plunging.

“We are interrupting for breaking news,” Fox News anchor Shep Smith said. “There is quite a drop happening on Wall Street. A massive sell-off is happening today.”
