SE Asia Stocks-Lower tracking global equities as concerns over Trump trade grow
Southeast Asian stock markets ended lower on Wednesday, tracking Asian peers and Wall Street
overnight that fell on worries U.S. President Donald Trump will struggle to deliver promised tax cuts and on nervousness ahead of a key healthcare vote.
Trump tried to rally Republican lawmakers behind a plan to dismantle Obamacare on Tuesday, with moderate Republicans worrying that millions of Americans will be hurt by the dismantling of former President Barack Obama's signature healthcare legislation, while conservative lawmakers believe the healthcare bill does not go far enough.
Investors worry a failed healthcare push could also portend trouble for Trump's promise to cut taxes and ease regulation that have propelled the market to record highs in recent months.
