5. President Trump

 I  do endorse Steve Bannon’s one trillion dollar spending plan. It would be helpful for domestic investment but that is more of a 2018 economic reality rather than 2017. I do expect President elect Trump to target all companies that choose to move plants over seas but not tax companies that have existing plants over seas. If  the health care numbers don’t go his way once the Republicans repeal and replace, I expect massive targeting of companies in the health care industry.  (Don’t be surprised if single payer gets some attention).
