How about the prediction by almost everyone in the financial world that the U.S. dollar would rise? That had the strongest consensus of any politico-economic position going into 2017, and it was spectacularly wrong. There hasn't been any other year in recent memory where people were as confident in the dollar, and it delivered up its worst performance in ten years. Somehow I think this is more important than whether or not Trump stopped tweeting.

The Trump death camps turned out to be as true as the Obama death camps.
