Following this week's surprising U.S. election, we're bringing investors one of the best investments for when Trump is president. You see, there are certain investments that just received a major bullish catalyst from President-elect Trump.

The feeling among U.S. investors is that a Trump administration will spend heavily on infrastructure and defense, repeal the Affordable Care Act, and cut taxes.
