The White House said Monday that President Donald Trump was focused on the long-term health of the economy, claiming the fundamentals were "exceptionally strong", despite a strong market sell-off.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders cited "strengthening USA economic growth, historically low unemployment and increasing wages for American workers".

"The President's tax cuts and regulatory reforms will further enhance the US economy and continue to increase prosperity for the American people", she added.

As the president proclaimed in OH that 'America is once again open for business, ' the Dow Jones Industrial Average took a massive hit, plummeting as much as 1,500 points before rebounding to a less dramatic loss of more than 1,175 at the end of the trading day.

"Factors that are out of the control of the president are driving the upside and the downside, despite the fact that he'd like to take credit for upside", Ware said.

The Dow plunged 666 points Friday, prompting the Wall Street Journal to declare that "correction watch is on", then tumbled another 1,175 points Monday.
