Foreign & Economic Policy Under Trump?

On the radio program, Jean Lafleur visits for the first time. Jeff Deist and Daniel McAdams are returning guests.

Now that we have had several weeks of a “would be” revolutionary president, what might we be able to project about future policies and outcomes with regard to both foreign and domestic policies? Jeff Deist who served Presidential Candidate Ron Paul as his chief of staff and Daniel McAdams who worked for Dr. Paul as his foreign affairs advisor gave us their thoughts about what the early days of the Trump administration may mean for our future.

Mr. Lafleur, an experienced gold mine builder, talks about the multi-million ounce gold deposit his company Aurvista Gold Corp. is outlining. And Jay shared some of Michael Oliver’s usual momentum insights into the stock, bond and gold markets.
