Is Trump following Nixon’s playbook? — #SaxoStrats

Steen Jakobsen, chief economist and CIO at Saxo Bank, expects US president-elect Donald Trump to employ near-replica political policies of former president Richard Nixon.

Jakobsen predicts that Nixon’s protectionist agenda, pressuring the Federal Reserve and having a populist approach to trading, will no doubt become a trademark of the Trump era.

But, as this video shows, the Trump-Nixon connection even goes beyond political ideologies. In 1987, Nixon wrote a personal letter to Trump in which the former president’s wife Pat had predicted political success for the property tycoon.

Trump will become the 45th president of the United States later on Friday, following eight years of Democrat Barack Obama. Nixon was the 37th US president from 1969 to 1974.

I see Mike also has a comparison article for Trump this time JFK being the younger newbie replacing older eisenhower to the current older replacing 55yr Obama....interesting read. It appears we all are seeking signals/reference points to work from.

It sure looks like Trump is following in Nixons footsteps. This will take the USD down and gold up! Not yet but in due time.The 2008 crisis is not yet over, the market needs a reset.
