December 5, 2015 | Trump – the Next President?

Martin Armstrong

Martin Arthur Armstrong is the former chairman of Princeton Economics International Ltd. He is best known for his economic predictions based on the Economic Confidence Model, which he developed.


Donald Trump has surged to 36% in the polls driving the political pundits crazy. After more than 30 years of dealing directly with politicians around the world, I must say one thing. Politicians NEVER will admit a mistake. No matter what, they will always follow a single course simply because they declared that direction from the outset. So we will not see a reform of the Euro but authoritarianism to force it to work. We will not see Obama back-down from trying to overthrow Assad despite the fact this will lead to ISIS controlling Syria and creating even more of a problem if not World War III. Politicians do not change direction.


Trump being a businessman, is not cut from the same cloth. Perhaps he would change the direction we are headed in and would actually negotiate with Putin. His risk is that of assassination for those really in power Behind the Curtain do not want to lose the reins or power. They would have him killed before the give up control and playing warlord.


One thing is clear. Trump is at least a shot at making a change compared to Hillary and Bush. Looks like the political upset for Washington predicted by our computer way back in 1985 for 2016 will be spot on. All it takes is turning the economy down to upset politics.

Trump actually has more support than most incumbent political parties in any other government worldwide. This is illustrating that indeed 2015.75 was by far the peak in government on a major global scale.
