Trump to End the Dollar as We Know It by 2018?

Is Trump purposely tanking the U.S. dollar?

Even if you support the president, you could be excused for thinking that.

The greenback is down 7.5% since he took office — and the trend doesn’t show any signs of stopping.

But could that all be according to his plan?

Related: How Donald Trump could “reboot” the U.S. dollar by Jan. 1, 2018

This move is long overdue. Despite its status as the world reserve currency, the U.S. dollar has been in dire straits for years — and Trump knows it.

That’s why by Jan. 1 2018, Trump is almost certain to give the U.S. dollar a much-needed “reboot.”

And that’s not a bad thing.

In fact, according to Jim Rickards — former CIA advisor and renowned currency war expert — this could be a major UPGRADE to the paper dollar.

It could transform everything you know about saving… spending… investing… retiring… and banking…

No, this has nothing to do with bitcoin or any new cryptocurrencies you’ve been reading about.

But by Jan. 1, 2018 — if Donald Trump signs this new money deal — one investment could soar by as much as 1,000%. (And no, I’m not talking about gold.)

In the end, this explosive event will be great for the U.S. dollar — and for anyone who knows about it ahead of time.

If you have any money priced in U.S. dollars — like a savings account, brokerage account or 401(k) — you need to know about this.

Listen to the full story right here.
