Donald Trump, China, and bond markets

Bill Clinton once observed that the key to re-election was to keep the bond markets happy. China is betting on the bond markets as well.

Lighting up the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea subsequent to a U.S. “preemptive strike” will drive bond yields up and send bond prices down. This will allow China to buy U.S. treasury notes (bonds) on the cheap.

Who knew that Donald Trump and the U.S. military were really an investment banking syndicate for China?
