Donald Trump laid out his 100-day plan for the economy on CNBC on Thursday. From favoring low interest rates, to possibly replacing Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen, to renegotiating the country's trade deals, the billionaire businessman and presumptive GOP presidential nominee made the case for why he is the best candidate to revive the stalled economy.

Investors have so far not reacted with their money to Trump's stated plans, though comments from Democratic presidential front-runner and favorite to win the presidency Hillary Clinton have been moving markets for more than seven months. Back in September, Clinton's tweet about "price gouging" by drug-makers sent biotech stocks tumbling.

But if Trump gains any momentum as the general election approaches, his words could start to sway asset prices. So we asked some members of CNBC's "Squawk Box" Platinum Portfolio their political proofing strategies for this volatile run-up to Nov. 8.
