    I think that if we can cut federal spending and get a boost in the economy via cutting regs (ACA, Dodd-Frank, etc) and taxes, that revenue shortfall gap they assume in Trump's plan can be greatly reduced or perhaps even eliminated eventually. I'm not a fan of tariffs in this day and age - there are better ways to deal with countries like China who play hardball.

    As for Crooked Clinton, just more of the same tax, regulate, borrow, and spend, spend, spend...

    Not that I expect CNBC to be fair and balanced -- goodbye Roger Ailes -- this piece is food for thought on what a Trump presidency might mean for the stock market.

    Suggesting "hotels and leisure" would not fare well surprises me. Leisure maybe, but the hotel we're staying at in the Denver area is crowded. Ibid for nearby hotels. I wonder if the writer gives short shrift to business travel.
