Trump is riskier than what?
For months, Donald Trump has said that once in the White House, he will not only make this country better, but greater.
The Economist Intelligence Unit disagrees.
On Monday, the EIC released its list of the top 10 risks that could have the most devastating effects on the global economy. Coming in at No. 3 on the list? The Donald. A Trump presidency, the EIU calculates, would be among the worse things to face the world.
Just how bad would a Commander in Chief Trump be? Worse than the rising threat of jihad terrorism, according to the EIC rankings.
In addition to disrupting the global economy, Trump could heighten political and security risks in the U.S., warns the EIC. Luckily for some, the research firm predicts Hillary Clinton to win this election.
