Donald Trump fans who like to make money from their investments have to feel conflicted right now, with the US President single-handedly putting the global economy on track for recession, driven by his weaponization of tariffs.

These have given rise not just to Wall Street-market-driven, alarmist concerns but the big end of town CEOs are worried that their companies’ futures could be affected.

The Mexican standoff news aside, the next biggest threat to world trade, market confidence and individual share prices has been China’s suggestion that it will blacklist US companies that trade in China.
