The Money Saving Expert used a short video on Wednesday to reassure people that the billionaire’s surprise victory is not likely to cause great upheaval financially.
Responding to questions about what effect Trump might have on our finances, Lewis said: “My honest answer: not very much. Keep calm, carry on.
“Why do I say that? Well, first of all Trump is president-elect, not president. So we certainly haven’t had any real change yet.
“Yes, we’ve had the usual sentimental response from the market - this isn’t what the pollsters predicted and this isn’t what the big institutions wanted or expected, they’ve got uncertainty now they don’t like that.”
He continued: “This will be smoothed out. We’ve seen the dollar fall, certainly against the yen, not so much against the pound because of our own instability here.
“The big thing of course is that Donald Trump was the change candidate, that’s what he’s promised, he’s a US businessman you would expect him to try and focus on rebuilding their economy and try to boost it.
“The US is the engine room for world growth if it starts to drive that will trickle down to the rest of us. If he delivers that could be positive.
“Of course though with the separation of powers in the US the checks and balances could scupper him.
“Over all, I think the financial impact on us as consumers is pretty minimal.”
