"The big Achilles' heel is the economic financial policy of Trump. Seven months into his Presidency, he has not yet done anything which would really carry the message that he means it in terms of his election promises — Glass-Steagall, the American System, Alexander Hamilton, Lincoln, $1 trillion investment in infrastructure. That's probably still what he intends to do, but it still hasn't happened yet. He only has appointed about one-third of the people who should fill posts in various departments like the State Department and other departments. And he still has people like [Secretary of the Treasury Steve] Mnuchin there, and it's clearly the weak flank." "We are under the Damocles Sword of a collapse worse than 2008. There are many voices apart from our own warning that all the tools of the central banks have been used up; quantitative easing has just led to an increase of the profits of the speculators at the expense of the common people. The gap between rich and poor has been widening; the corporate debt, the state debt, all of these factors are much worse than 2008. If this thing would collapse, you would have chaos instantly. We are not away from the danger of the threat to the existence of civilization. The NATO maneuvers are still taking place, and that is still a source of danger. But right now, the biggest danger is the collapse of the system leading to instant chaos."
