The big records set by the Dow Jones Industrial Average under Donald Trump (20,000 in 2017, 25,000 in 2018) serve as a reminder that securities markets seem to reward presidential weirdness over competence and sanity.

Democrats Will Fix It

Donald Trump is pushing through radical right policies, including a tax revamp and a crackdown against immigrants. But Democrats could reverse all that if and when they retake power. So everything will be just fine. Right?
