We have come to realize that Donald J. Trump often says things that have NOTHING to do with reality….
Who says one thing….
They changes it the next day….
That makes comments that staff have to try and clarify, only to have their boss confuse things again….
That has views that are shaped by Fox News , or worst it seems ?
Just plain made up….
In several cases in the last year and half Congress has had to disregard Trump’s wishes and go their own way…..
Several Federal Courts have stop actions he sort to take….
It is no wonder that many have stopped worrying about Trump’s tweets or comments and are moving ahead without focusing on a President that seems inept in the office of the American President….
All of this has led investors, executives and diplomats to the conclusion that trying to act on any single thing Trump says or tweets is a fool’s game. The more effective strategy, these people say, is to look for trends in the broad sweep of Trump’s approach to governance and ignore all the noise.
“He’s clearly proven that he tends to shoot first and ask questions later and that is very, very difficult for anyone on Wall Street or really anywhere to navigate,” said Jack Ablin, chief investment officer at Cresset Wealth Advisors. “You can get free traders in the administration pushing stuff like rejoining TPP then he wipes it all out with a single tweet. So what we’ve tended to do is just look at the trends from 30,000 feet and shrug off the random tweets.”
In the case of Amazon, Trump roasted the company for days on Twitter at the end of March, crushing its stock price. Since then he’s only asked for a review of Post Office contracts, including the one it has with Amazon. Investors consider the review unlikely to amount to anything. Fears of a full-bore assault on the online retail giant have evaporated and its shares are climbing again.
One of the wealthiest hedge fund managers in the world, who is a Trump supporter and did not want to be identified by name criticizing the president, said trading on any single Trump comment — whether Amazon or anything else — was ill advised given how quickly he can change positions or simply move on to another subject…..
