While President-elect Donald Trump is promising to revitalize the economic growth, market watcher Evan Newmark told CNBC on Friday he believes the economy can easily be derailed.
That's because he doesn't see where the growth will come from other than inflation and some element of global trade.
"One trade war and Trump's economy is dead, dead in the water," the private investor and CNBC contributor told CNBC's "Closing Bell."
During the campaign, Trump promised to end what he called unfair trade practices.
"Trade reform and the negotiation of great trade deals is the quickest way to bring our jobs back to our country," Trump said at a Pennsylvania rally in June. "A Trump administration will change our failed trade policies, and I mean quickly."
