Dow futures slump Monday evening as Trump pledges military deployment if cities fail to quell civil unrest
U.S. stock-index futures headed lower in thin trading Monday evening as President Donald Trump said he would deploy military personnel across cities facing protests if state governors and local officials prove unable to contain civil unrest erupting across the nation. "I am dispatching thousands and thousands of heavily armed soldiers," Trump said on Monday at the White House, according to news reports. "If a city or state refuses to take the actions necessary to defend the life and property of their residents, then I will deploy the United States military and quickly solve the problem for them," Trump said, at a news conference late Monday.

The Dow finished regular trade on Tuesday 91.91 points, or 0.4%, higher at 25,475.02, after trading negative at the start of Monday's session. The S&P 500 rose 11.42 points, or 0.4%, to end at 3,055.73; while The Nasdaq Composite added 62.18 points, or 0.7%, to close at 9,552.05.
