“Gold Has Figured It Out”

Well, that didn’t take long. After unleashing a barrage of bombs on Syria, Trump wasted no time in rattling his saber towards the rest of the world.

Following a weekend meeting with Chinese Premier Xi, Trump clearly sent a message (through his twitter account) that the U.S. intends to next deal with North Korea.

China responded by moving 150,000 soldiers to the Korean border. Although it is still not clear whether China is fully on board with Trump’s plan, the North Koreans are not backing down from the fiery rhetoric.

I am aware that I add little value by discussing geo-politics. Apart from noting that North Korea is probably more full of bluster than true willingness to go to war (after all, the U.S. has Chuck), the situation is difficult to analyze.

But I wanted to point out a troubling development. Before you potentially misconstrue my comments, please be assured I have no desire to make judgments on either Trump or his policies. I have absolutely no need to convince you that my opinion about what should be done is correct. I don’t have all the facts, so I have no ability to say what is the proper course of action.

Yet I want to highlight a potentially troublesome scenario. We can probably all agree that Trump is one of the most insecure Presidents ever elected. Even his friends are aware of this flaw. In a recent Politco article, Tim O’Brien, a Trump close acquaintance described him this way:

“So at the very moment he hates the establishment, he also desperately wants to be approved by it.”

So we have an insecure President, whose approval rating is floundering badly, that has just launched a missile attack on Syria, and what was the result?
