Advice for President Trump

President Trump has a serious mandate to get our country back on track. Trump faces many difficulties on the economic front, reasons why he will find it hard to make America’s economy greater.

Included on that list are a shortage of skilled workers, sluggish productivity, income inequality and strong dollar. According to USA Today, there have been 14 recessions since 1901 after new presidents have been inaugurated.

This economic upswing with the Dow approaching 20,000 will run out soon and go down with the coming recession.

The Wall Street Journal predicted, “Business climate for next four years; stormy.”

“If Economic Cycle Theorists are correct, 2016 to 2020 will be pure hell for the United States” according to Michael Snyder of

The clock is ticking.

Donald, good news and bad news – good news you got elected – bad news is elected in middle of Kondratieff fourth quadrant. You will get blamed for coming recession.

Proverbs 22-3 says, “A wise man sees danger; a fool goes his merry way.”

Remember that no bureaucracy in history will dismantle itself. You can be sure there are forces out there that want to keep the “same ole, same ole” and will be looking for any excuse to impeach. I would recommend assigning a high-level person to go over any conflicts on a daily basis. Just know gators are in the swamp watching for even the slightest incident.

It is always smart to be elected at the end of the fourth and start of first quadrant. In the last forty years, polls stated 74 percent of Americans trusted our leaders. This year’s latest research shows 9 percent trust our officials. Overall, recent poll painted a stunningly fractured country. Some 85 percent of people regard the nation as more politically divided than in the past and 80 percent view Americans as being greatly divided on most important values.

No democracy in the history of man has lasted 250 years and here we are at 240 years. We just celebrated our national holiday commemorating the birth of our nation. Even with the problems and conflict, the United States is still the greatest nation in the world. I have traveled the world, met their people, worked with their governments, industry and organizations. The real experience for me is getting to know their students. I have taught senior and graduate level courses and the related time to get to know them. They are the future of their countries and I can say for Mrs. Migliore and me, it was a real delight. In some cases, I was the first and only professor they had from United States.

My observation is we have our Constitution, balanced government, and our checks and balances. Finally we have many things to cherish and must guard – our freedoms, the dignity of the individual and a free democracy. But there is no guarantee of the future. Look at the Roman and British Empires. In many ways, we are full steam ahead following their example.

Again, “A wise man sees danger fool goes his merry way.” We had better not take our way of life for granted. God bless America!

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

“I agree with Dante, that the hottest places in hell are reserved for those who in a period of moral crisis maintain their neutrality.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

All we need is a flashpoint – a world event, natural disaster or major conflict to create a panic. Look at potential hot spots: Russia, China, North Korea, Iran and Israel.

The stage is set for spring 2017. One trigger/flash point and here we go again – panic and mass chaos. Could history repeat itself?

The trigger for start of World War I was the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, heir to Austria-Hungary throne on July 28, 1914. On August 2, 1914, Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia. August 3, 2014 Germany declared war on France.

We know rest of story. History very well will repeat itself. My spirit is telling me something beyond what we can imagine is going to take place. Panic and the world could go into chaos and for sure, we could crash into a deep recession worse than that of 2008. What will America look like in the future?
