President Trump and Lebron James' feud continues. Trump recently insulted James' intelligence, tweeting that Don Lemon "made Lebron look smart, which isn't easy to do,". But the insult isn't what bothers the NBA superstar. "What bothers me is that he [Trump] has time to even do that," James said. "He has the most powerful job in the world. Like, you really got this much time that you can comment on me?" This isn't the first time the two have butted heads. Details, at the link in our bio. *

China is likely to take a bigger hit to its economy than the U.S. from the escalating trade wars. Economists say China's growth could be slowed next year by as much as 0.6% due to tariffs. The effect on the U.S. economy is still small, but it would become greater if the trade wars are prolonged and begin to hurt confidence. More, at the link in bio. *

Wells Fargo, the third-biggest U.S. bank, is lowering its employee headcount. The bank has 265,000 employees, meaning the reduction would result in a loss of between 13,250 and 26,500 jobs. The move is part of the bank's "ongoing transformation" after multiple scandals across major business units in the past 2 years. More, at the link in bio. * *

The U.S. economy is leading the rest of the world. Trump's top economic aide, Larry Kudlow, thinks that's because the U.S. has cut taxes and let businesses know that government is back on their side. "The single biggest story of this year ... is not a fictionalized version of what goes on in the White House and all the rest of it. The single biggest story is an economic boom that virtually everybody thought impossible," Kudlow said. "I believe the recent successes are not off-off. They will be continued and sustained because of the policies." More, at the link in bio. *

with @cnbcmakeit: Bugatti, a French luxury carmaker, recently debuted it's newest Divo hypercar for $5.8 million. All 40 limited series vehicles the company made were sold right on the spot.

The Divo is built for corners, meaning it can handle curves and bends at fast speeds with an acceleration of zero to 62 miles per hour in 2.4 seconds with a top speed of 236 miles per hour. It has a 1,500 horsepower, quad-turbo engine with four turbochargers with two-stage turbocharging and intercooling.

The Divo is classified as a hypercar, meaning it has low volume production, superior performance specs (i.e., faster than a supercar) and a price tag in the millions.

Hundreds of McDonald's employees, emboldened by the #MeToo movement, staged a one-day strike across 10 cities on Tuesday to draw attention to alleged sexual harassment at work. Carrying signs that read "#MeToo McDonald's," hundreds of cooks and cashiers walked out on their jobs to gather and speak out, organizers said. "We're here, we're loud, sexual harassment is not allowed," and "Respect us, accept us, don't try to touch us," were just some of the things protestors chanted. Some 40% of women in the fast-food industry reported facing sexual harassment on the job, according to a 2016 survey conducted by Hart Research Associates. More details, at the link in bio. *

It was a wild day of trading for Canadian marijuana producer Tilray. The stock was halted 5 times by the Nasdaq for volatility, and still ended the day up 38%, its best day ever as a public company. Its market cap jumped to nearly $28 billion before paring the majority of its gains, at one point making it a bigger stock than 59% of the S&P 500. That's a sign of just how big the hype has grown for pot-related plays on Wall Street. These charts illustrate today’s 1 day action, and the stock’s 1 month trajectory. ⠀

Jack Ma, founder and chairman of Chinese retail giant Alibaba, says the company no longer plans to create 1 million jobs in the United States in the wake of the ongoing trade conflict between the U.S. and China. "The promise was made on the premise of friendly US-China partnership and rational trade relations," Ma said. "That premise no longer exists today, so our promise cannot be fulfilled."
