Trump tweets Mexican Peso down

A group of Mexican investors have (jokingly) opted the idea that their government should buy Twitter. This may seem like a surreal trade, but the explanation makes sense. Since Donald Trump’s election as the 45th president of the United States in November of 2016, the Mexican government has spent a large portion of the national reserves on protective measurements for their national currency, the peso. The Mexican investors noticed a relation between the anti-Mexico tweets sent out by Donald Trump and the real-time value of the currency. The exchange rates took large drops for every tweet. The Mexicans said that the government would be better off buying Twitter, so they could stop Trump from tweeting, to eventually save the peso. This transaction would in the end be cheaper than all the protective measurements.
