“When there’s a crash, I hope it’s going to be during this next 12 months because I don’t want to be Herbert Hoover. The one president, I just don’t want to be Herbert Hoover,” Trump said during an interview with former Fox host Lou Dobbs on Monday.
Former President Herbert Hoover’s first year in office was marked by the stock market crash in 1929, six months after he became president. The crash signaled the start of the Great Depression, which led to the downfall of his presidency.
