Trump presidency rated among top 10 global risks: EIU

The research firm warns he could disrupt the global economy and heighten political and security risks in the US.

However, it does not expect Mr Trump to defeat Hillary Clinton who it sees as "his most likely Democratic contender".

He is rated as riskier than Britain leaving the European Union or an armed clash in the South China Sea.

China encountering a "hard landing" or sharp economic slowdown and Russia's interventions in Ukraine and Syria preceding a new "cold war" are among the events seen as more dangerous.

"Thus far Mr Trump has given very few details of his policies - and these tend to be prone to constant revision," the EIU said in its global risk assessment, which looks at impact and probability.

The EIU ranking uses a scale of one to 25, with Mr Trump garnering a rating of 12, the same level of risk as "the rising threat of jihadi terrorism destabilising the global economy".

There's a lot of anti-Trump all over the world, sure. He threatens to not go along with the 'new world order' of world socialism in which all countries will march to the same tune, all get poorer while the few at the top who are engineering it have total control and get even richer.
If the powers that be get what they want the masses will be their slaves.

So this ludicrous organisation thinks Trump becoming Yank President and Britain leaving the EUSSR are huge risks to global order are they?

In the old days, organisations such as EIU were filled with sensible, sane gentlemen. Now they are filled with hysterical, mad, scaremongering Lefties who are as crazy as a lorry load of baboons.

The world has every reason to be concerned about Trump.
He reminds me somewhat of the nut job in North Korea .
They're both power hungry egotistical delusional fools with extremely stupid haircuts.

They both will most certainly have temper tantrums that could cause the death of literally millions of people.

The fact that the mainstream Republican Party realizes how dangerous he is and is doing everything short of assassination to stop him proves my point.

The combination of Muslim terrorism and Donald Trump's brand of fascism , is going to take the world in a direction very few of us are going to be able to recover from.

Assuming now that it will be a Donald Trump v. Hillary Clinton race.. by far the biggest risk to American and Global economy, and the stability of the world, would be a Clinton Presidency.

She would guarantee an acceleration of the Free Market paradigm (her husband was the most radically ideological of all Free Market presidents).. an elevation of the graven idols of AGW (pseudo environmentalism), abortion (feminism), homosexuality, euthenasia.. institutional destruction of marriage, education, faith, science. That is corrosive to the social order and vitality of any culture. It would become her guiding amoral principles.

For all of his faults Donald Trump is independent of the these organized ideologies, he is a populist, a nationalist, and likely much more responsible and moderate than his stump speeches indicate. He offers the best hope of averting the catastrophe the West is now hurtling toward at breakneck speed. Hillary is a complete fool and puppet.. she would be an absolute disaster.

Not only does conservative businessman and GOP presidential frontrunner Donald J. Drumpf have to fight the political establishment… he has to deal with “Anonymous” computer hackers!


After declaring war on Drumpf earlier this month, the hacking organization just published private information of Drumpf, including his social security number, private phone number, and other personal information. Private information from Drumpf’s attorneys were included too.

The data dump, usually referred to as “doxxing” on the internet, is a way of using confidential information to attack someone else.

The name of the operation “#OpWhiteRose” has supposedly launched chapters across America, and are ready to fight Drumpf throughout the presidential campaign.
As they explain in the video (below), they oppose Drumpf’s strong stance against illegal immigration and compare him to Hilter…

Donald Drumpf has also, disturbingly proposed Nazi-style religious ID badges and databases to track Muslims in the United States. When asked if there was any difference between this and what Hitler did, he did not deny the fact that there was absolutely no difference.

Add to this his ex-wife admitting he regularly studied the speeches of Adolf Hitler, and his own reluctance to disavow endorsements by the KKK and Neo-Nazi groups and individuals, and it is clear that Drumpf’s platform is one of White Supremacy.

This candidate has openly promoted violence against peaceful protesters, and his words have even been considered as possibly illegal incitement to violence and rioting by law enforcement. Members of the military and law enforcement – even Secret Service – must remember their oaths to defend the Constitution itself, and the nation, against enemies “both foreign and domestic.”

Donald Drumpf is an enemy of the Constitution and the natural rights it enshrines.

His rallies are filled with brazen hatred, racism and violence.

Imagine if the people of Germany – Jews, Communists, the Roma people (“Gypsies”), and all others targeted by the Third Reich – had risen up against Hitler during his failed campaign for office in 1932?

Many of you have said to yourself, that if you were alive in Nazi Germany, then you would have done “something” – you would have “resisted” like the White Rose Society resisted. Now is the time to prove that.

The White Rose Society has risen again in the United States. They are at Anti-Drumpf protests, and rallies in support of their Muslim and Latino neighbors. You will recognize them by their wearing of a single white rose, and the use of the hashtag #WhiteRoseRevolt on protest signs.

Anonymous Red Cult stands united with the White Rose Revolt and we call on all of you – Anons and others – to stand with them and take action against Donald Drumpf and his new era of “Brown Shirt” terrorists, assaulting protesters, and trying to intimidate millions of peace-loving people who happen to be a different color or religion.

The Republican Party accepted Trump as a candidate though, didn't they? Could it have been the money they thought they could milk from him?
The Republican Party is just as bad if not worse than Trump! Their smear campaign against him is above and beyond what civilized people resort to. Their rhetoric is more hateful than Trumps!
The Republican Party is insane to blow their chance of winning the Presidency. Trump is the only candidate who stands a chance of defeating Clinton. Even if Cruz wins the nomination and defeated Clinton, he will carry on the same old, same old, that the people are fed up with.
What socialism is doing to the free world is unconscionable! It needs to be stopped in its tracks.

Liberals and progressives, along with virtually all of the media are terrified of Trump, simply because he does not listen to them or believe their BS. Does anyone think that a President or a PM acts alone? If so there is no point trying to help you.

True enough Gopher... but I was talking about the liberal irrational fear mongering about Trump as the OP has illustrated.

The only reason it will upset the global economy is because jobs will go back to America and level the playing field and get US back to a trade surplus from a trade deficit which is in the billions of dollar. Trump is for fair trade

I wouldn't bank on the international market going for American products in any real volume. They will be ahead by eliminating the imports they current buy and replace that with American products.
