I've been thinking about exactly the same question.
Contrary to all the superstitious pundits who have expressed concerns about an imminent economic collapse based primarily on the 10th anniversary of the 2008 crisis, I've wondered whether the Deep State (top financiers primarily ensconced in the privately owned Fed along with some top corporate leaders and Zionists--no, it is not synonymous with the CIA, NSA, FBI, etc: these are merely secretive instruments of the Deep State) would go to the extent of engineering an economic collapse as a sure-fire way of getting rid of Trump in the 2020 presidential election if they don't succeed earlier. Because of the inherent instability of capitalism, and especially given the astronomical levels of debt engineered to keep the system going in the USA and its Empire, an economic crash will happen sooner or later. It would be very beneficial for our masters if they could blame it entirely on Trump.
While it is not at all clear that rising Fed interest rates will trigger a stock market crash in time for the November mid-term elections, the stage is clearly set for the Fed to put the US economy into a severe recession or depression by the time of the 2020 elections. That would finish the Trump presidency should the Powers That Be decide another option is more useful to their global power agenda.
“We won’t be able to call it a recession, it’s going to be worse than the Great Depression,” said Peter Schiff, fund manager who anticipated the 2007 sub-prime crash.
