    I might be a little paranoid but this is my concern:

    It is very possible that sometime in 2018 the market will experience a moderately large correction, not a "crash". My fear is that the main stream media will hype this as a "Trump Crash", induce panic in many investors and cause a real crash. They will do this without regard for the American economy in their bloodlust to discredit the President and his policies. The consequences in November could be devastating.

    I'd like to hear comments on my "theory". Please convince me that I am wrong.

    It's entirely possible IMHO. There are many of
    our "Leaders" who wouldn't give a rats ass if the
    economy tanked along with Wall Street as long
    as Trump gets the blame.

    And I include Republicans too.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    The GOP needs a preemptive strategy to neutralize this contingency. Get a bill to repeal or fix Dodd-Frank with some simple talking points about how it is bad for the economy. I'll never pass, the democrats will filibuster it. Then, IF a big market correction occurs, beat the drum with "I told you so". Alas, they will likely do nothing and go into hiding if a crash occurs (or is manufactured).
