Fox News Reporter Left Utterly Confused After Trump Brags About Non-Existent “409k’s”





President Donald Trump took to Twitter Thursday morning to brag about the performance of non-existent “409k’s” on Thursday while touting the stock market’s “ALL-TIME HIGH!”

“STOCK MARKET AT ALL-TIME HIGH!” Trump exclaimed in a now-deleted tweet. “HOW ARE YOUR 409K’S DOING? 70%, 80%, 90% up? Only 50% up! What are you doing wrong?”



A 409k is not a thing. The president was presumably referring to a 401k, which is a company-sponsored retirement account to which employees contribute a certain amount that employers match either fully or partially.

The tweet left Fox News reporter John Roberts scratching his head along with most Americans.

Trump followed up the 409k tweet with another one linking the lowest cancer-death rate in history to his presidency.




“U.S. Cancer Death Rate Lowest In Recorded History! A lot of good news coming out of this Administration,” he tweeted.

Business Insider notes: “Trump’s tweet comes after the American Cancer Society released a new report which found that the cancer-death rate in the US is indeed at an all-time low. According to the report, the largest single-year drop ever recorded happened in 2017. But the ACS said some types of cancers, like prostate and breast cancer, are improving at a slower rate than others. It’s unclear why the president linked the cancer death rate to his administration.”
