"I don't trust this market at all," Cramer warned on "Squawk on the Street" as stock futures pointed to a higher Wall Street open, which in fact came to pass through the morning. "[Trump] has made it so we got to wait to be able to buy."
Trump is "really disturbing the zeitgeist of the stock market," Cramer said. "He should knock the tweets off if he wants the Dow to start going up, at least today."

In late morning trading, the S&P 500 was making up about half of Monday's losses, which had sent the index down for a total of nearly 5% from its May 1 intraday all-time high.

Meanwhile, the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative is taking steps to prepare to slap tariffs on the remaining billions and billions of dollars worth of Chinese goods coming into the U.S.
