The prospect of Donald Trump winning the U.S. presidency represents a global threat on a par with extremist militancy destabilizing the world economy, according to British research group EIU.In the latest version of its Global Risk assessment, the Economist Intelligence Unit ranked victory for the Republican front-runner at 12 on an index where the current top threat is a Chinese economic "hard landing" rated 20 . Justifying the threat level, the EIU highlighted the tycoon's alienation towards China as well as his comments on Islamist extremism, saying a proposal to stop Muslims from entering the United States would be a "potent recruitment tool for jihadi groups". Rated at 12 alongside the prospect of a Trump presidency was the threat of ISIS, which the EIU said risked ending a five-year bull run on U.S. and European stock markets if terrorist attacks escalated.
