On President Trump’s first day in the Oval Office, he made good on his campaign promise to “rip up” trade deals he thinks are unfavorable to the U.S. economy by withdrawing from the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade negotiations.
And mark my words, this is only the beginning.
Not long after Trump’s election win – a surprise to most investors, but an outcome I predicted in advance thanks to my cycle analysis – I’m on record saying: “I have no doubt that he will follow through on this promise. He was clear about one goal throughout his campaign: Getting much tougher on trade relations.”
My cycles and AI models warned you to expect chaos in the global economy and financial markets, including a worldwide sovereign bond crisis. This was long before Mr. Trump even decided to run for president.
The truth is, we were heading down this path no matter who became our next Commander in Chief. But the fact that Donald J. Trump is our 45thpresident at this critical time in our nation’s history, indeed in the annals of world history, fits in perfectly with my cycle analysis.
Look, this is the guy who authored “The Art of the Deal” and “The Art of the Comeback.” So make no mistake, he fully intends to use the same hard-ball negotiating tactics when it comes to a broad range of issues including:
- Foreign trade talks…
- Confronting China …
- Levying tariffs and taxes on imports …
- Even combating Isis and terrorism in general
As I said, this is just the beginning. Going forward, expect more divisive politics and social unrest that will make the million-women march look like a tea party. Ultimately, you can expect an end to the era of big government, not just in the U.S., but worldwide.
The old order that has been in place since WWII is about to come crashing down. The era in which governments amassed an unsustainable $275 trillion in total debts and obligations is quickly coming to a painful end.
