Ackman to Trump: Shut Down the U.S.

In a barage of tweets, Bill Ackman, founder & CEO of Pershing Square, urged the Trump Administration to consider a nationwide closure. "Tell all Americans that you are putting us on an extended Spring Break at home with family," tweeted Ackman at 7:51 on Wednesday morning. Following these comments, Caroline Woods of MarketBrief and Carleton English of Barron's discussed the implications of Ackman's overall message and how President Trump may act on this advice.
