 How would President Trump and the Dow react if he runs, and if elected?

Reagan, Eastwood, Schwarzenegger…Trump? Why not!

Ronald Reagan was President of a Union in the 1940s; he was, as the journalists put it, "active" in politics for more than two decades before he ran for governor in California. (To this day I find it wonderfully funny that the Brown clan thought that Reagan - the supposed "amateur" - was an easier opponent than William Knowland.)

The comparison with Clint Eastwood is pretty dodgy. Eastwood is a movie star who can green light any project that interests him, and he has had that power for 4 decades. Reagan was a talented actor who never starred in anything with more than a "B" budget and never made any money in Hollywood at all. Unlike Reagan Eastwood has always been a Republican.

As for Trump, he is the Colonel Sanders of contemporary politics–a recognizable name for a brand that is all signs and no voters.
