When it began pinging around on Twitter, the graph raised suspicion. 

It showed the stock price of Lockheed Martin, an aerospace firm, jumping off a cliff only minutes before President-elect Donald Trump disparaged the company on Twitter. 

Had Trump told people to dump their stock before he blasted Lockheed Martin’s F-35 fighter jet program? 

The F-35 program and cost is out of control. Billions of dollars can and will be saved on military (and other) purchases after January 20th.
