After a weekend full of chaos for Trump rallies in Ohio, where violence broke out during several rallies and Trump was even rushed by an protester, moments ago the GOP presidential frontrunner started his daily rally in Hickory, North Carolina with Chris Christie by his side ahead of the all important primaries in Ohio and Florida.
“We have fundamental problems in Germany that led to this outcome. We are seeing above all in these elections that voters are turning away in large numbers from the big established parties and voting for our party. They expect us finally to be the opposition that there hasn’t been in the German parliament and some state parliaments."
Amid the maelstrom of Sunday's political show machinations over Trump's rallies, one awkward fact remains - The Donald's lead increases. The latest NBC/Marist polls show Trump 'swamping' Rubio in his home state of Florida (43% to 21%), a solid lead in Illinois (34% to Cruz's 25%), and is closing the gap on Kasich in Ohio (33% to Kasich's 39%). However, as Reuters reports, despite the growing social unrest, The Donald shows no sign of toning down his rhetoric, theatening to send his supporters to the campaign rallies of "Communist friend" Bernie Sanders and hammering Kasich's "Ohio recovery" narrative.
Shortly after beginning his speech at a rally in Dayton, Ohio, Donald Trump was rapidly surrounded by Secret Service agents after an audience member grew increasingly raucous to the point of Trump appearing to duck at hearing a noise. Trump did not leave the stage and carried on with his speech, adding "I was ready for him, but it's much easier if the cops do it, don’t we agree?" This comes after last night's violent protests (which Soros-funded MoveOn.org have taken credit for) and this morning's misinformation about the cancellation of the Ohio rally.
Amid confusion over the cancellation, due to more security concerns, of today's rally in Ohio - since denied by Trump campaign officials - the finger of blame for last night's violent protests is wending its way through the mainstream media, leading to even more confusion...
We have arrived. The moment of truth. No matter whether you believe this to be a bull market ready to re-assert itself or you view the recent rally in the context of a bear market about to unfold you must acknowledge the pivotal nature of where the market now finds itself in the days ahead.
