Trump Wants Ride in Queen of England’s Golden Carriage for UK Visit



Donald Trump wants a golden carriage procession down the London Mall during his planned UK visit in October in what police believe will likely be the most extensive public order operation in years.

“If he is in a golden coach being dragged up the Mall by a couple of horses, the risk factor is dramatically increased,” said a source.

Hundreds of heavily-armed security agents travel with Trump,along with plain-clothed police officers, positioned snipers and firearms officers in the crowds.

The source added: “There may well be protections in that coach such as bulletproof glass, but they are limited. In particular it is very flimsy.”

The IMF Says Donald Trump is Good for the American Economy



As Trump is planned stimulus to pump money to upgrade bridges, roads and other parts of the nation’s infrastructure, and cutting corporate and personal taxes, the IMF is saying the President Trump could  be good for U.S. economy.

Christine Lagarde, head of the International Monetary Fund said Sunday that President Donald Trump will probably be good for the American economy in the short term. She did say rising interest rates and a strengthening dollar will be tough for global trade.

Ms. Lagarde cited Trump’s plans for investment in U.S. infrastructure and his likely tax reforms could do well for America’s economic fortunes. Donald Trump’s policies might be felt in the rest of the world.

“That’s a tightening that is going to be difficult on the global economy and for which economies have to prepare,” Lagarde said during an event at the World Government Summit in Dubai as reported by USA Today.

Lagarde discussed a creeping and “insidious” anti-globalization movement which has led to a rise in protectionist views. “We have been saying globalization is great, international trade is great — and it is,” she said. “But we have not looked at those who were badly, negatively impacted.” Instead of citing derivatives and bad loans, she cited robots and shrinking incomes of the global middle class.

Regarding Trump in the White House, Lagarde tread lightly, saying “this is really a work in progress — there’s been of announcements, a lot of tweets, a lot of things being said.” She pointed towards the importance of data and facts in decision making.

“I know it’s not fashionable at the moment, but I think that facts, figures (and) actual assessment of the reality matter and that we have to be honest about it,” she said.

Her comments mirror IMF statements in January, when the said that a stimulus in spending under Trump should bode well for the U.S. economy.

The IMF’s recent optimism towards the U.S economy comes as the world awaits how the Trump administration will approach global governance.

The IMF’s most recent growth forecast for 2017 is 2.3%, an incremental increase from its 2.2% made in October. Next

Trump has claimed his economic policies would mean a 4% pace.

The IMF called its forecast for the U.S. the most probable of a “wide range of possible scenarios,” citing uncertainty over Trump and a Republican controlled congress will spell.

If Donald Trump pursues stimulus measures above the IMF forecast, U.S growth could prove even stronger. Donald Trump protectionism could stifle the growth.

The IMF’s tune was different during the Presidential election, when they sugested that Trump’s protectionism wold be bad for world economy.

“For two decades before the 2000s, global trade regularly grew by 7%, or twice the rate of the world economy. Today, however, trade growth is below that of the global economy – at about 2%,” Lagarde said.

“There is a growing risk of politicians seeking office by promising to ‘get tough’ with foreign trade partners through punitive tariffs or other restrictions on trade. I am deeply concerned about this – not only because I was a minister of trade, but because trade has been at the heart of the IMF’s mandate for more than 70 years.”

Why The Stock Market Crash Is Really Good For Donald Trump

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump took to Twitter to voice his displeasure about the United States’ close ties to China as the Dow plummeted 1,000 at its open on heavy algorithmic trading. 

“As I have long stated, we are so tied in with China and Asia that their markets are now taking the U.S. market down. Get smart U.S.A.” Trump tweeted.

“Markets are crashing – all caused by poor planning and allowing China and Asia to dictate the agenda. This could get very messy! Vote Trump,” he wrote in a separate Tweet. Trump Instagramed a video on the issue.

“I’ve been telling everybody for a long time China’s taking our jobs, they’re taking our money. Be careful, they’ll bring us down. You have to know what you’re doing,” Trump says. “We have nobody that has a clue.”

Unfortunately for everyone who is not a Trump follower – for instance, Deez Nuts supporters – the stock market crashing now is not such a good thing. For Donald Trump and his followers, it could be a very good thing.

Historically, economic uncertainty have allowed what were once radical and fringe personalities to seize considerable power in their country. In 1920s Germany, the government at the time – known as the Weimar Republic – endured unfortunate economic crisis after the Treat of Versailles tasked Germany with paying back all World War I debts.

This ultimately led to the sort of monetary conditions wherein the famous photos of people bringing wheelbarrows full of money to the market for food and other goods. In post-war Italy, Mussolini’s great oratorical skills, the post-war economic crisis ravaging Italy, and an increasing fear of socialism allowed his Fascist Party to lead the Italian government into World War II.

Argentina is familiar with such a history when economic crisis in the 1930s led to a military junta which dominated the country on-and-off until the 1970s.

In Nazi Germany, history generally explains that Hitler did improve the economy when he came to power in 1933. The following 5 years were a time of economic growth and numerous state run programs were designed to ease the economic burden on everyday Germans. Many people in Germany  viewed Hitler as the one who could save them from the turmoil of the previous decade+. Some think the same of Trump:

Trump took to Instagram to voice his warning:

Depression- be careful of China!
