Not the first and probably not the last to warn of this...

Trump victory could cause global recession: Citigroup

If New York developer Donald Trump wins the White House in November, the global economy could slip into recession, according to a forecast from Citigroup Thursday.

In a research note a team led by the US bank's chief economist Willem Buiter said the election was a major source of uncertainty in the global economy.
I'm just reporting the news. I hate Citi, personally.

Oh, you mean this Citigroup?:

Washington D.C., Aug. 17, 2015 —
The Securities and Exchange Commission today announced that two Citigroup affiliates have agreed to pay nearly $180 million to settle charges that they defrauded investors in two hedge funds by claiming they were safe, low-risk, and suitable for traditional bond investors. The funds later crumbled and eventually collapsed during the financial crisis.

Donald Trump winning the US presidency is considered one of the top 10 risks facing the world, according to the Economist Intelligence Unit.

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

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

I have posted this like 10 times here. Apparently the Trump suppoters don't seem to care that only is he a liar and a racist, he's a global top 10 risk (although he's been moved up the #3 spot in the last month)

There is little doubt that bankers want Clinton to win. They want the status quo to remain. They are terrified of Trump because they don't own him.

Didn't the banks in Europe all warn about a global recession if Brexit was approved as well? Look how that turned out. People in Britain didn't seem to care.
