SANDRA SMITH (CO-HOST): How much of this is -- is this Republican -- is Democrats winning control of the House? I mean, since Election Day, midterm Election Day, the Dow's lost 4 percent alone. 

CHARLES PAYNE (FOX BUSINESS HOST): I think it's the tone. You know, the very next day the market was up. But since then, the tone of Democrats, who have declared war on President Trump, I think have been a real negative wave for the market. Particularly, I think Americans want to see legislation, not more investigations. You know, I don't think they want to see Maxine Waters spending a whole lot of time digging up dirt on Deutsche Bank when people are trying to, you know, live their lives.
