Trump Trade Terror

I’ve suspected that the global ridicule directed at Donald Trump, now President Trump, has been motivated by fear of his wanting to renegotiate NAFTA, in effect seeming to oppose Free Trade that old Victorian Era battle cry of British manufacturers. The results of the first round of the French election with the middle of the road party(free trade sympathizers) taking the lead seemed to have explained the near 200 point gain in the Dow futures, and Germany’s Dax nearly 400, a view confirmed by a BNN caption: “STOCKS SURGE AMID RELIEF OVER FIRST ROUND OF FRENCH PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION”.
