Yet America's goal is clear: it will not allow the emergence of a rival. Not another Soviet Union. Is China a potential rival? Yes. China denies it and tries to maintain a very low profile. How will Trump stop it? I do not know.
Two sectors slumped the most: Technology and Finance. They are exposed to foreign trade and uncertainty. Wall Street prefers stability, but the current situation was untenable. I think Trump is doing what has to be done, he is a strong leader, but I too am a bit frightened.
