Additionally, Trump told CNBC earlier today, "The China deal is going to work out," saying Beijing is "going to have to make a deal."

It's a busy Merger Monday on Wall Street today, and Tableau Software Inc (NYSE:DATA) is trading at the top of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) on M&A buzz. Specifically, DATA stock is up 34% at $167.96, after (CRM) agreed to buy the cloud company in an all-stock deal valued at $15.3 billion.

Beyond Meat Inc (NASDAQ:BYND) is one of the best Nasdaq stocks so far today, though it's not entirely clear what the catalyst is for this latest surge.
