Well, that wasn’t supposed to happen.
Trump wins. US stocks soar.
What happened to the idea that a Trump presidency would lead to financial disaster and geopolitical Armageddon?
That’s the markets for you.
So, Trump will be the 45th president of the United States when he’s sworn in on 20 January next year.
The question is: will it make a difference to anything at all? Or, despite the claims of this being a victory of the ‘little people’ over the elites, will the ‘deep state’ remain in control?
Our take is that from the perspective the ‘deep state’ being in control, nothing will change.
Even with the best intentions in the world, it’s hard to think that an anti-elitist president can do anything to take apart the multiple layers of government bureaucracy.
There are too many vested interests. The government bureaucracy and those who work for and in it are the biggest vested interests of all.
Forget about the vested interests on Wall Street, or within big business, or within the globalist elite. The biggest problem is the government itself.
That’s why we don’t expect to see much, if any, change at all.
The ‘deep state’ and other vested interests will fight tooth and nail to prevent Trump making any changes. Just as they’re fighting against Brexit in the UK.
