In 2011, Donald Trump predicted riots in the street and exorbitantly expensive loaves of bread due to higher oil prices and a declining dollar. But the business mogul overshot the price of bread by more than 12 times.
In a 2011 NewsMax TV clip dug up by Buzzfeed, Trump says, “If oil prices are allowed to inflate and keep inflating, if the dollar keeps going down in value — which is not good because you’re going to pay $25 for a loaf of bread pretty soon. If you look at what’s happening with our food prices, they’re going through the roof.”
“We could end up being another Egypt,” he added. “You could have riots in our streets also.”
But, luckily for consumers, Trump wasn’t quite right. According to Buzzfeed, the average price of a loaf of bread is currently $2.32.
