2011年四月，泰勒收到上帝的聖訓，當他正隨意轉著電視頻道而恰好看到川普的訪談，泰勒耳朵聽到上帝說：「你正在聽下任總統說話。」 “…Taylor received a message from God in April 2011, while he was surfing television channels….As he clicked to an interview with Trump, Taylor heard God say: “You are hearing the voice of the next president.””
相信川普的競選是上帝顯靈的人還不少。富蘭克林。葛拉漢，一個保守的福音教派信徒就聲稱去年川普的當選是因為上帝的介入，他告訴華盛頓郵報說：「我可以感受到橫跨這個國家，上帝打算做點什麼，而我相信就在這場總統大選，顯靈了！」”…The belief that Trump’s election was God’s divine will is shared by others. Franklin Graham, the prominent conservative evangelical, said last year that Trump’s victory was the result of divine intervention. “I could sense going across the country that God was going to do something this year. And I believe that at this election, God showed up,” he told the Washington Post.”
不要懷疑簡。吉麗肯的信心：「川普是上帝的旨意！沒有其他種解釋了。整個2016競選我的為他祈禱，我心裡清楚在我們國家這個關鍵時刻，上帝幫了他一把。」”…There was no doubt in Jayne Gillikan’s mind. “Trump is God’s will, there’s no other way to explain it. I prayed for him through the [2016 election] campaign. I know in my heart that God raised him up for this time in our country.””
quote:”不知道讀者們有沒有感覺到一件奇怪的事情：美國憲法明明將「課稅（taxing）」權力專屬劃給國會….川普此次貿易戰卻是引用Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962, 此法案賦與商務部長（其實等於是總統）可以針對進口商品有礙「國家安全」者開徵關稅。… …當風向大轉，尤其在川普不得近半數美國人人心的條件下，美國國會收回部分課稅權，也只是合理合憲的安排。這意味著，貿易戰課稅不是美國總統隨心所欲可以為之。弄爛國家經濟，不但政治上下台，連未來總統課稅權都可以被收回。…
果然有美國國會議員已經看不下去，賓州的共和黨參議員Pat Toomey提出Trade Expansion Act of 1962修正案，主張：未來美國總統如欲以「國家安全」為理由開徵關稅，則必須在60天內得到國會追認才能生效。否則60天後該總統命令自動失效，美國國內廠商亦得向聯邦政府主張返還60天內被額外課徵的稅金。
1. The leveraged loan market has exploded since the financial crisis, doubling in size over the past decade to $1.2tn
2. More than 80 per cent of the market is now deemed “cov-lite”, according to LCD, meaning financial maintenance protections have been removed.
3. The US default rate is now just 1.6 per cent, well below the historical average of 3.1 per cent, says Ruth Yang, a managing director at S&P Global Market Intelligence. In fact, they could stay this way for some time in part because covenants remain so loose.
