Trump’s tweet comes on the heels of last week’s stock market plunge on Wednesday, when both the Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 closed in negative territory for the year.

Both indices have previously hit historic highs this year, before starting on a precipitous decline. The Dow was down 2,191 points from its all-time high on Oct. 3, and the S&P 500 fell 285 points from a record high on Sept. 20.

The president also took a shot at Democrats, who some pollsters predict will see strong turnout next week, and suggested constituents vote for them if they want to continue to see the decline.
