Good Luck.
Researchers have [stated / started] that Donald Trump winning the U.S. presidency is one of the top ten risks [heading / facing] the world. The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) warns that a president Trump could [corrupt / disrupt] the world's economy and increase [political / politically] tensions worldwide. It said a Trump victory in November's U.S. presidential elections could also lead to [global / globally] insecurity. The EIU puts Mr Trump on the same level of risk as, "the [raising / rising] threat of jihadi terrorism destabilising the global economy". A [reasoned / reason] for Mr Trump's high ranking is a lack of information about his [proposal / proposed] plans. The EIU said: "Thus [far / for] , Mr Trump has given very few details of his policies, and these tend to be [prove / prone] to constant revision."

The EIU rated Mr Trump [as / was] being riskier than the United Kingdom leaving the European Union or an [eared / armed] confrontation in the South China Sea. He was seen as [less / lesser] dangerous than China encountering a [sharp / scissor] economic slowdown and Russia's foreign policy in Ukraine and Syria resulting in a new [cold / frozen] war. The EIU said Mr Trump has got many people worried by his [rhetoric / rhetorical] towards Mexico and China, which "could [escalator / escalate] rapidly into a trade war". Mr Trump has called for a "big, big wall" to be built [in / on] the US-Mexican border to keep "illegal immigrants" and "drug dealers" out of the United States. He even said he would get Mexico to [pay / fund] for it. He has also called for a temporary ban [on / in] Muslims entering the USA.
