In case you missed it….
“BERLIN—Germany’s leading auto makers have thrown their support behind the abolition of all import tariffs for cars between the European Union and the U.S. in an effort to find a peaceful solution to the brewing trade war…
That would mean scrapping the EU’s 10% tax on auto imports from the U.S. and other countries and the 2.5% duty on auto imports in the U.S. As a prerequisite, the Europeans want President Donald Trump’s threat of imposing a 25% border tax on European auto imports off the table.” Wall Street Journal
They WANT what?? Hello? What all that noise at the G6+1??? They thought Trump was bluffing?? NOPE!! They saw his approach to China! They KNOW he isn’t bluffing!
Now, the EU members are scrambling. Stabbing each other in the back, as Trump knew they would once they considered their OWN self interest!
And these capitulations, they’ve only just begun, with more to come from Germany for sure, will serve to inform China as well.
Macron just got shafted by Merkel. But the Germans have ALWAYS had France’s back, right? Do you read much history?
The visit with Britain’s May just might be cancelled again, as she was intimately involved in the anti-Trump Deep State maneuvers. So why bail her out of political difficulty?
The loneliest piñata at the fiesta will be Canada’s Justin Trudeau, and no one deserves bashing more than impudent empty suit. His comeuppance for biting the very hand that feeds him is going to be legendary!
Trump has been speaking about trade policy and its affect on American workers since the 80s. NONE of this is accidental or off the cuff. The Elites may not like it, but America’s working class definitely does!
Trump is not trying to hurt these other countries, but adjustments of unfair prior practices must occur! VSG, indeed!
