    At the start it was funny that Donald Trump was different from everybody else, a breath of fresh air and someone willing to stand up and take the flak. Fast forward just a few months and Donald Trump’s lack of diplomacy is becoming a liability for investors. Stock markets have taken a welcome breather from recent highs but there are growing concerns that Donald Trump is becoming something of a mockery on the worldwide stage.

    Markets don't care much about politics. Corporate profits and low interest rates seem to be doing a good job keeping the big boys mostly long. Some believe this bull market could continue on for many more years.

    Like it or not, Trump is the leader of the most powerful nation on earth.

    Hopefully we'll see more deregulation, and perhaps some sort of solution to the tax reform and ACA problems. It may take getting some of the RINOs primaried out of office by better GOP challengers in 2018 to get much of that done, unfortunately. I'd like to see McCain and the other GOP senators who are now against repealing the ACA get primaried out.

    ^^ We were the most powerful nation on earth but that has been changing and there will be 5 super powers and imo >> probably much sooner than later with Trump at the helm.

    2016 article pre Trump >> "...The U.S. ranks No. 1 in power and No. 1 in terms of leadership – two powerful indicators of its global standing. But there is evidence that other nations are nipping at its heels. The country ranks No. 2 in terms of political influence, following Russia, and No. 2 in terms of economic influence, after China.

    In fact, according to Pew surveys, most people in the world believe China is on track to replace the U.S. as the world's superpower. China ranks No. 17 overall in the Best Countries rankings." https://www.usnews.com/news/best-countries/articles/2016-01-20/what-country-is-no-1-not-the-us

    I can see China becoming an economic powerhouse to challenge the US but not on a political front. The Chinese government is too totalitarian to dictate to other countries - just my view.
