- She claimed the day after Trump tweeted that the US would raise rates on Chinese goods by 5 percent, thereby increasing the trade war with China

Democratic presidential candidate hopeful Marianne Williamson compared President Trump with the & # 39; Mad King & # 39; George III of Great Britain.
During an interview with CNN on Saturday, Williamson was asked how she could cope with the economy if she was president and she responded by comparing Trump with George III, the man who was crowned when the colonies declared independence in 1776, initially about tax without representation in parliament.
& # 39; Well first of all, & # 39; said Williamson, & we now have a somewhat crazy King George who is in charge of this country and its chaos, and what he has done with the rates, and what he has done with China, the instability of market that the market does not appreciate that. The market likes a sense of stability, which is understandable. & # 39;

Williamson probably referred to Trump's recently tweeted tweet escalating the trade war.
Trump wrote Friday morning that the US would be much better off without China & # 39; and that it would plan to levy an additional 5 percent tax on $ 550 billion worth of Chinese goods before the end of the year.
This means that from 1 September the US would raise its existing rates for $ 300 billion worth of Chinese goods from 10% to 15%. The remaining $ 250 billion worth of Chinese imports would then see its rates rise from the current 25% to 30% percent from October 1.
The tweet followed the Beijing revelation that China was planning to impose retaliation rights on $ 75 billion worth of US imports, ranging from soy to ethanol. China will also reset the rates of 25 percent on cars and 5 percent on car parts, which were suspended last December.

During the interview, Williamson said that she – and any other chosen democrat – the & # 39; craziness & # 39; from the trade war. The Dow fell 623 points after Friday's trade war announcements
The announcements of Friday's trade war caused a sell-out causing the Dow to drop 623 points one day and lose shares for billions in value.
Williamson, who has not yet qualified for the democratic debate in September, said that & # 39; the first thing that will happen when a democrat is elected is that this madness will stop. I certainly would not have this trade war with China, I certainly would not have these rates. & # 39;
During the interview, Williamson touched on her other plans that she had if she were to become president.
& # 39; The US economy is skewed in favor of a very small number of people, & # 39; Williamson said, adding that she wanted to put an end to the last 40 years of playing with this trickle down economic theory that did not lift all votes, it remains behind millions of people without life jackets. & # 39;
She said she was Trump & # 39; s 2917 $ 2 trillion tax cut for & # 39; the very richest companies & # 39; wanted to withdraw and & # 39; would go back in the middle class tax cuts & # 39 ;. She also said she wanted to put an end to fossil fuel subsidies and enable the government to negotiate drug prices with pharmaceutical companies, among other things.
The reign of George III was remarkable because he had lost the American colonies & # 39; and also because he suffered from mental disorders at intermittent stages.
A computer analysis of the language used in thousands of George III handwritten letters revealed that when the king was in the middle of an episode of mental illness, his sentences were considerably longer than when he was healthy, according to the BBC.
During an episode, King George appeared to have repeated himself often, while his vocabulary & # 39; became much more complex, creative and colorful & # 39; – a pattern that is said to be seen in the writing and speaking of modern patients in the manic phase of a psychiatric illness.
