i admit to having money in the stock market. And in the last few days all I can say is: uh-oh.
I mean, I expect the market to fluctuate, and it’s so high now,afew hundred points lost are….well,we don’t consider stepping onto the ledge.
But what about China? I have no doubt The Don is right. Yet every time he backs off a bit, the market goes up(after a weekly point loss that woulda been catastrophic just 10 years ago.)
The Chinese have got sump’n we don’t: they do not care, not a whit, about hardship for their populace, nor do they consult the opinion of their populace. All you have to do is read their 20th Century history to realize that. It simply was never in the equation for them. S’why it’s so interesting watching ‘em deal ( well,so far we can’t really call it “dealing”) with Hong Kong.
What I’m trying to say is I’m worried about The Don. If he hangs tough for the future’s sake, he may not be able to boast of such a great US economy in 2020. But, if he “backs down” ( we’re already seeing that phrase today) — well: he hadda back down, that never looks good in campaign season.
God defend the Right!
