Top 10 Insurance Stocks For 2021

It seems that every time President-elect Donald Trump tweets, the Mexican peso tumbles.

Case in point, Trump sent a warning shot to automakers that if they choose to manufacture their products in Mexico, they will be subject to a hefty border tax. When automakers declared they would scrap plans to manufacturer in Mexico in favor of the United States, the Mexican peso took a tumble.

According to a Bloomberg report, Mexican currency traders have an idea on how to boost their currency: acquire Twitter Inc (NYSE: TWTR) and then shut down the service so Trump can no longer use it as a platform to hurt the national currency.

The Mexican central bank has already blown through $2 billion in reserves to support the currency, which represents roughly one-sixth of Twitter’s market capitalization.
