Its time to plan an escape route, for you and your money, from Trumpland

There are two great dangers when managing your own money and, indeed, the rest of your affairs. The first is reacting too much to recent events. The other is reacting too little.

And when it comes to whatís now happening in this country, the second danger is every bit as risky as the first.

To cut to the chase, it is becoming increasingly clear that Americans should be taking reasonable steps to diversify their investments outside the U.S., including holding assets in currencies other than dollars, and where possible to acquire a second passport.

Yes, Iím serious. Jewish-, Irish- and Italian-Americans, for example, should be checking out whether they qualify automatically for dual citizenship. Others should be looking into their options too. It is always a good thing to be diversified globally and to have the option of leaving the country and living and working elsewhere. But right now it is more important than usual.

1. Sadly, reading the responses reinforces why my partner and I are actively working

on avenues to leave the US.

Call it hyperbole but I truly fear that the only way this will end is through Civil War 2.0. When, despite abysmal approval ratings and a host of scandals that would take down nearly any other politician, 97% of Trump voters are sticking by their man it shows the line in the sand has been drawn. The beast is out and there is no stuffing it back in it's box.
