Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

Last week, we noted that black billionaire Robert Johnson refused to be bullied by left-of-center CNBC panelists into disrespecting President Trump and his agenda.  Johnson pointed to the positive results that the Trump agenda are providing to the nation, including blacks and other minorities.

More recently, performance artists Kanye West tweeted his support for Candace Owen, who says she was a liberal two years ago, and today is pro-Trump and a self-described conservative.  She’s “evolved.”

It is way too soon to make predictions about the midterms, and what impact they will have on American business. It ought to be seen as tragic that who holds the congress and White House can have so much impact on American business and the economy, but there it is. That’s reality in 2018.  The right or wrong headlines sends the markets rising or failing, in spite of overall good economic news.

So, issues like the outcome of the 2018 midterms are indeed important.  It is entirely possible that voices like West’s, Owens’ and Johnson’s could signal a new coalition in America. If so, then don’t buy too deeply into the narrative that the president’s party has no chance.
