A REPORTER was caught on a hot mic saying Donald Trump's minute-long press conference on Tuesday "was weird as s**t."
The president surprisingly addressed journalists at the White House on Tuesday after the Dow topped 30,000 points for the first time.
Standing alongside Vice President Mike Pence, Trump called the news a "sacred number" before quickly leaving the briefing room.
Members of the press shouted questions at Trump – as he hasn't taken questions from reporters in 21 days – but he didn't respond.
Once he was gone from the room, a reporter was heard saying: "Well, that was weird as s**t."
Earlier on Tuesday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average topped 30,000 points for the first time.
The S&P 500 index, which has a far greater impact on 401(k) accounts than the Dow, rose 1.3 percent.
The Dow's jump came as investors were encouraged by the latest progress on coronavirus vaccines and President-elect Joe Biden's transition to the White House.
Traders were also encouraged by news that Biden had reportedly selected Janet Yellen, former Federal Reserve chair, to serve as Treasury secretary.
In the briefing room, Trump told reporters: "I just want to congratulate everybody. The stock market Dow Jones Industrial Average just hit 30,000, which is the highest in history."
“We’ve never broken 30,000, and that’s despite everything that’s taken place with the pandemic.
“The stock market’s just broken 30,000 – never been broken, that number."
Trump said: "That’s a sacred number, 30,000, and nobody thought they’d ever see it."
After his victory lap, Trump nearly exited the briefing room as fast as he entered.
In February, Trump said that if he didn't win re-election, "You’re going to see a crash like you’ve never seen before."
He said if Biden was elected, 401ks were "down the tubes" and would "disintegrate and disappear."
On Monday, Trump’s General Services Administration, Emily Murphy, acknowledged that Biden won the 2020 race – two weeks after Election Day.

It means the president-elect will now become party to the daily security briefing and be able to communicate with the country's Covid-19 task-force.
That allows the incoming president to coordinate with federal agencies on plans for taking over on January 20 – despite Trump's repeated attempts to try to overturn the election.
The Dow's climb also comes amid recent good news on coronavirus vaccines.
