ICAHN LEFT TRUMP PARTY TO BUY STOCKS AS MARKETS PLUNGED
Carl Icahn, Donald Trump's biggest fan on Wall Street, thought it was pure "insanity" when he saw global markets panicking over the shocking election outcome. Sensing an opportunity, the billionaire investors left Trump's party in Manhattan early to go home and buy "a lot of stock" in the overnight markets. "I'm glad I did that," Icahn told CNBC on Wednesday, just hours after Trump's shocking defeat of Hillary Clinton. "I guess that's what makes me happy today too." Of course, the unspecified bet has already paid off for Icahn, an early and vocal Trump supporter who said he's "thrilled" at the election outcome.
