Financial guru who said blacks would have made US ‘look like Zimbabwe’ booted from investment firm board

Published

An investment analyst who made a name for himself as ‘Dr. Doom” for his occasionally jaundiced view of the markets has been booted from the board of a major investment company after saying it was good that blacks didn’t settle the US or the country would “look like Zimbabwe.”

According to Bloomberg,  Marc Faber agreed to leave the board of money manager Sprott Inc., after the comments — made in a newsletter — came to light.

“The recent comments by Dr. Faber are deeply disappointing and are completely contradictory with the views of Sprott and its employees,” Sprott Chief Executive Officer Peter Grosskopf said in a statement announcing Faber’s departure. “We pride ourselves on being a diverse organization and comments of this sort will not be tolerated.”

Earlier in the day, CNBC, Fox Business Network, and Bloomberg TV all indicated they would no longer book Faber for their financial shows.

He then joked that he will be in office for 26 more years — which would be a flagrant violation of the Constitution's two-term limit for presidents — and that when he does, "they're going to miss us."

WATCH LIVE: Donald Trump holds 2020 reelection rally in Colorado Springs

Published

on

Donald Trump was late to take the stage at a campaign rally in Colorado Springs after a bombshell report that Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin was one of the president's 2020 supporters.

Trump was scheduled to begin speaking at 5:00 p.m. Mountain Time at the Broadmoor World Arena, which has a capacity of 8,000. Trump took the stage 25 minutes later.

The rally is seen as a thank you for Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO), who voted to acquit the commander-in-chief following the Senate impeachment trial.

Garner is facing a tough re-election in 2020 in a state that has been trending Democratic.
