Market in Fools rises on back of Trump NATO comments
After the G7 NATO meeting in Canada, Trump expressed anger over the United State’s trade deficit in a series of tweets:
“Not fair to the people of America! $800 billion trade deficit,” he said. “Why should I, as president of the United State, allow countries to continue to make massive trade surpluses, as they have for decades, while our farmers, workers & taxpayers have such a big and unfair price to pay?”
The frustration has led to Trump proposing a new market in exporting jesters and fools to plug the trade deficit with NATO.
“Fair trade is now to be called fool trade”
The markets responded to Trump’s NATO comments in anticipation of the new strategy. The Dow-Jones was up 20 points with circuses leading to much of the growth.
A number of universities have also pledged to start new courses in foolery to plug the skills gap.
