    Japan, S.Korea, Canada, Mexico, all in line with new trade deals now.
    How soon for China, EU, UK?
    Far from being the tyrant many on here shouted about he is getting the job done for the USA. He will win a second term IMO.
    Pop corn ready:eek:;)

    Donald Trump is to USA politics what Jeremy Clarkson was to the BBC.

    The BBC hated his blokey views, his opinionated style and straight talking.....yet with him at the helm Top Gear brought in millions to their coffers.

    Success ....don't ya just hate it?? :D

    Before you get too excited

    Trump had little or nothing to do with these trade deals - he just takes all the credit as usual.

    Also the one with Canada has to get through both houses next year - not a certainty.

    You don't understand Trump and all the other stuff he does - it isn't good.

    Is there nobody, anywhere prepared to point out that Trump's short-term economic boom has been bought at the expense of the long-term financial security of America?

    Or if this is a genuine economic miracle, then surely people should get behind John McDonnell's British version of it?

    Few people, even economists, care to make long-term predictions these days. They seldom work out well, as we saw when so many economists considered everthing to be just hunky-dory and didn't foresee the 2008 financial collapse was on the horizon.

    That's kind of like, spend all the savings, don't bother with a pension because after all you might get hit by a bus tomorrow.

    If you look at the graphs, it seems the increases in employment, the Dow and so on have continued under Trump from their progression under Obama.

    No it's not. It is exactly the opposite. Because you don't know what will happen tomorrow, you save to make provision for all likely contingencies.

    If anybody is going to save their money, they should do so in a currency other than sterling.

    You have no idea, do you? ;)

    Saving in equities, bonds, shares or gold tends to beat saving in any sort of currency.

    Physical gold is a good bet during inflationary periods or where there is economic uncertainty, IMO.

    Where do Mr Rees-Mogg and Co have their money?

    That's where to put it.

    Well offshore

    In the employee-owned partnership known as Somerset Capital Investment.

    I think it is a much more mixed portfolio than that. I recall JRM saying that the secret of investment is diversification.

    I wouldn't trust anything he says.

    Why did he set it up in Ireland?

    Make your mind up !!!

    He didn't. It was set up in Westminster with an office in Singapore. You are probably thinking of the investment fund the company set up in Ireland. With the lowest corporation tax of any reasonably sized EU country, there are still profits to be made there.
