Educated guesses or "predictions” of world events in 2020

Here are my educated guesses for some world events in 2020.

1. Trump won't be re-elected. As some Republican lawmakers, particularly Marco Rubio, may feel that chances for Trump are decreasing, they may decide to come out to challenge him in the presidential election rather than seeing him hand over the crown to the Democratic Party.

2. The situation in the Middle East will deteriorate rapidly.

3. US-Iran conflicts will escalate.

4. Similarly, US-North Korea conflicts will escalate, and North Korea could conduct at least either one nuclear test or one long-range missile test this year.

5. The Dow will be on a downward trend this year.

6. Hong Kong riots will continue unabated, even beyond to 2047.

7. In the "Year of the Rat", after nibbling away at the so-called phase 1 of the US-Sino trade deal, the US will find that "biting off" the remaining phases will be as hard as biting a rock.

8. Tsai will be re-elected, but this does not mean any good for Taiwan eventually -- just like the Monkey King was imprisoned by Gautama Buddha under the “Five Finger Mountain” as depicted in the 16th century Chinese novel "Journey to the West".

If we view it at another angle, it was a blessing in disguise for the Monkey King to be imprisoned under the mountain as he could enjoy 500 years of "democracy" before being disciplined or occasionally "tortured" by the "Tripitaka Master of Tang" who caused him unbearable headaches by chanting the “Ring Tightening Mantra”.
:halo:

P.S. As the mist retreats into the distance with the passing of time, we can see further ahead into the future. Readers are welcome to post their educated guesses, opinions or "predictions" of world events in this thread.

LOL--the year of the Rat. I thought that was every year since Trump was elected.
