If Donald Trump wins the Republican nomination and defeats likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in November, President Obama will sabotage the economy in his final months in office, predicts talk-radio host Michael Savage.
“If Trump wins – and I think he will – there will be an economic crash,” Savage told listeners of his nationally syndicated show, “The Savage Nation,” Monday.
“The reason I say that is not because of his policies, but because of what Obama will do on the way out the door.”
Savage said that if anyone thinks that a President Trump will be able to easily “turn this huge ship around, you don’t know much about navigation in turbulent waters.”
“Wait until you see what happens in the last few months if Trump wins,” Savage said.
“Wait until you see what that nice guy in the White House does.”
After the show, Savage elaborated to WND in an email on what he thinks the lame-duck period between the election and the inauguration might look like if Trump wins.
“(Federal Reserve Chairman Janet) Yellen ups interest rates, Obama and his band of unmerry pranksters – Sharpton and company –unleash the mobs,” Savage said. “(George) Soros makes a last-ditch effort to distract Trump and the new Justice Department from currency manipulation and other financial games he may have been playing. Spends tens of millions on social agitation.
“Obama floods the U.S. with Central Americans, Syrians and Africans, mainly Muslim, mainly young males, and grants pardons to 10,000 more Central American drug dealers,” Savage continued.
“Let’s see what else might these decent Americans do? Release a few more billion pork barrel ‘green’ projects? You can guess!”

‘Fidel in a dress’
Prior to his remarks about Obama’s final days in office, Savage told his listeners he believed Trump would defeat Clinton in a landslide, describing the former secretary of state, senator and first lady as “Fidel Castro in a dress.”
Savage cited the new Rasmussen poll of likely voters showing Trump with a 41-39 lead over Clinton nationally.
“And this is only an early poll,” Savage noted on his show Monday. “I said a long time ago that when it comes down to Trump vs. Clinton, he would win by a landslide, 60-40, 59-41, something like that.
“No matter how many illegal aliens Obama tried to flood into this country, Trump will win by a landslide,” he said.
In February, Savage warned that the banking deregulation under the Bill Clinton administration that led to the 2008 recession appears to be on the verge of impacting the economy again.
“We’re being set up for an economic meltdown similar to the one that triggered the Great Depression,” he said.
This time, however, Savage continued, “it’s going to occur on a global scale, and it’s unlikely that we’ll be able to recover within even the next several decades, once it happens.”
In the 2016 presidential election, he said, the subtext for most Democratic votes is a distrust of big business and banks.
“And they think that their savior is Bernie the Commie,” Savage said.
But Sanders is and always has been a politician, Savage said.
“If you have faith in him, you’re a fool. If you actually have faith that he’s going to do something different than the others, you’re crazy,” he said.
“You’ll get more of the same. You’ll get the same nonsense.”
“He’ll do nothing to the banks, because they control the presidency.
