<snipit>â€˜When I said that I think Trump is going to win in 2016, I also said that if you think 2016 is weird, just wait for 2020. Well, if you think 2020 is weird, just wait until 2024. You ainâ€™t seen nothing yet.â€™
Thatâ€™s â€œBond Kingâ€ billionaire and DoubleLine Capital boss Jeffrey Gundlach striking an ominous tone in comments he reportedly made this week at Schwabâ€™s 2020 IMPACT conference,
Gundlach was cited by Financial Advisor magazine as saying that he expects widening economic inequality to bring about a some sort of revolution by 2027, with the 2024 presidential election directly in the path of massive social, economic and political change.
For now, Gundlach, in contrast to what the polls are showing, believes, just as he did back in 2016, that next weekâ€™s election will go Trumpâ€™s way.
â€œMind you, my conviction is way lower than it was four years ago,â€ he explained. â€œBut back in [that period], when Trump was little more than an asterisk in the betting odds, I predicted he was going to win. This one is much more murky, but in my eyes, it favors a Trump win.â€
And while some would say Trumpâ€™s reelection poses a risk to markets and global stability, Gundlach sees it differently. â€œYou might dislike Trump or some of his policies, but risk is not what youâ€™re getting with him, particularly compared to turning the presidency over to another party, and particularly when that partyâ€™s candidate isnâ€™t saying what some of his policy positions are,â€ he said.
Gundlach added that his point of view doesnâ€™t come from partisanship. â€œI donâ€™t have a Republican voice, I actually donâ€™t like the Republicans, and I donâ€™t like the Democrats,â€ he said. â€œI used to be a Democrat, and Iâ€™ve voted for Republicans, but I simply donâ€™t like the influence peddling that both parties do. Theyâ€™ve really turned into the same party in terms of their sources of money.â€
===================================================================================Another perspective. Deep down there will be a faction of economist who will buy into the Biden madness, just not to upset half the political spectra applecart. Otherwise, those in the know....know.
