A Saturday morning report on MSNBC revealed that Texas contractor Clyde Scott can’t keep up with the demand.
“In the Obama administration our sales went up 250 percent,” Scott said. “The Trump administration, in the past month, our sales went up 500 percent.”
Scott explained that most of his clients hope to never have to use their doomsday shelters.
“If you have to come in here, that means the outside world no longer exists as we know it,” he said. “This is the doomsday scenario, right here.”
Most clients are afraid of war with another country, Scott explained, or civil unrest in the wake of a societal breakdown.
Some shelters are spartan, others are luxurious with pool tables and hot tubs and price tags can range up into the millions of dollars.
However, some customers believe what second-time bunker buyer Josh Greenhaw said, “You can never have too much protection.”

Modi tells Xi summit will launch ‘new era’ for India and China
India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi said Saturday that his summit with Chinese leader Xi Xinping would launch a "new era" between the neighbours who are seeking to overcome troublesome differences.

Trump calls for impeachment of Mitt Romney for criticizing him in rambling tweet

Claiming without evidence that voters in Utah are turning on their senator, Trump claimed, "I’m hearing that the Great People of Utah are considering their vote for their Pompous Senator, Mitt Romney, to be a big mistake. I agree! He is a fool who is playing right into the hands of the Do Nothing Democrats!" followed by: #IMPEACHMITTROMNEY
Trump claimed ‘inequality is down’ — one day later federal data showed the exact opposite is true
"The separation between rich and poor from 2017 and 2018 was greater than it has ever been."
