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.
Here’s the complete EIC rankings with rated risk intensity factor:
20: China experiences a hard landing
16: Currency depreciation and persistent weakness in commodity prices culminate in emerging-market corpo
16: Donald Trump wins the US presidential election
15: Beset by external and internal pressures, the EU begins to fracture
15: “Grexit” is followed by a euro zone break-up
12: The rising threat of jihadi terrorism destabilises the global economy
12: Chinese expansionism prompts a clash of arms in the South China Sea
10: Global growth surges in 2017 as emerging markets rally
9: Rising tide of political populism in the OECD results in a retreat from globalisation
4: A collapse in investment in the oil sector prompts a future oil price shock
Clinton quickly took to Twitter to voice her opinion on the rankings:
