Ron Paul’s sell-off prediction just got more severe.
The former Republican Congressman from Texas believes escalating dysfunction in Washington will create even more pain for Wall Street.
“A 50 percent pullback is conceivable,” Paul said on “Futures Now” recently. “I don’t believe it’s ten years off. I don’t even believe it’s a year off. ”
Paul noted that there’s a lot of chaos in Washington right now, with an “unpredictable president” and those who are inclined to “tear him apart” but if the market takes that big of a tumble, he doesn’t see it as Trump’s fault.
