The World Economic Forum (WEF) has called on globalist leaders to “Trump-proof their economies” ahead of the coming U.S. presidential election.
During the WEF’s annual summit in Davos, Switzerland this week, the unelected globalist organization has been pressing world leaders on how they will prepare for President Donald Trump’s likely return to power.
On Friday, Bloomberg Television host Francine Lacqua asked leaders at the WEF about their preparations for Trump’s reelection.
Throughout the event, which has run throughout this week, globalist WEF members have been raising the alarm about Trump’s return to the White House.
On the closing day of the Swiss summit, Lacqua hosted a panel on the “The Global Economic Outlook.”
She first turned to David Rubenstein, the co-founder and co-executive chairman of The Carlyle Group, one of the world’s largest private equity firms, and asked:
“David, a number of leaders have expressed concern of what Donald Trump in the White House means for fragmentation, for foreign policy.
“Is there any way that the rest of the world can Trump-proof their economies?”
“Ummm, if somebody has a way to do that, I think they should patent it and probably sell it to somebody else,” he began.
“It’d be very difficult to do.”
Representatives from Europe offered their views as well.
Lacqua then turned to Germany’s Federal Minister of Finance Christian Lindner and asked how he thinks “Europe should prepare.”
“I think we are talking too much about Donald Trump in Europe, and we should prepare ourselves for a possible second term for Donald Trump by fostering our European competitiveness,” Lindner said.
“Doing our homework is the best preparation for a possible second term of Donald Trump, and this includes our capabilities to defend ourselves.”
He went on to argue that working to be an “attractive partner on eye-level” in terms of economics and NATO is the best way to ensure a good partnership with the United States, to the point that it won’t matter whether Biden or Trump ultimately win the presidency in 2024.
European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde answered:
“I think the best defense, if that’s the way you want to look at it, is attack. And to attack properly, you need to be strong at home.
“So being strong means to have a strong deep market, having a real single market.”
She further argued for a transition for the European economy toward becoming a “greener economy, which relies, certainly for a period of time, on fossil fuel, but less so, as was indicated in the last COP28, and moves towards renewables, where investment is badly needed.”
