Warren Buffett says the US will do fine under Trump because we've got the 'secret sauce'
Hillary Clinton backer Warren Buffett told CNBC on the eve of Donald Trump's inauguration that the billionaire real estate mogul has the "most important job in the world."
"America works," the chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway said. "I've said this before. It'll work wonderfully under Hillary Clinton, and I think it'll work fine under Donald Trump."
At a red carpet event Thursday night in New York for a new HBO documentary about his life, Buffett told CNBC the United States has the "secret sauce."
"It doesn't work all the time perfectly," the billionaire investor and philanthropist said, "but you just look at where we go, milestone after milestone. Never bet against America."
With that mantra as a guiding principle, Buffett said, "we're almost always a buyer of stocks over time."
Well, that's reassuring. Maybe.

1. Well, I'm no Warren Buffet. CIA though, has something to say abt the Secret Sauce:
'More than spying is needed to stop the kind of carnage suffered last week in Fort Lauderdale and last year in Orlando, according the former head of the CIA and NSA who has who headed intelligence agencies under three presidents.
Michael Hayden's advice, which he said is not popular in the world of espionage: Begin a serious conversation without “knee-jerk, rejectionist reactions” about the Second Amendment.

“There is not much more you can do in terms or surveillance that really cranks up the probability I’m going to find the Orlando guy or the Boston Marathon kids or the Chattanooga guy,” said Hayden, who served under presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama. “There’s some stuff on the margins that might make it more likely, but there’s no secret sauce.”
The idea is to make would-be lone-wolf attackers, no matter what their political views, less dangerous.'
