Trump warns European Union of retaliation over tariffs

Trump warns European Union of retaliation over tariffs


JUDICIAL ANALYST JUDGE ANDREW NAPOLITANO IS HERE. A BIG SHOW COMING UP THIS MORNING. WE TAKE IT OFF RIGHT NOW WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP DOUBLING DOWN WHEN HE BEGINS RETALIATION FOR THE EUROPEAN UNION. THE PRESIDENT TREATED THIS THREAD OVER THE WEEKEND. IF THEY WANT TO FURTHER INCREASE THEIR MASSIVE TARIFFS ON THE U.S. COMPANIES DOING BUSINESS THERE, WE WILL SIMPLY APPLY A TAX ON THEIR CARS, WHICH REALLY POUR INTO THE UNITED STATES. THEY MAKE IT IMPOSSIBLE TO SELL THERE. WILBUR ROSS TOLD ME YESTERDAY ON “SUNDAY MORNING FUTURES” ABOUT THAT WHEN I BROUGHT A POTENTIAL RETALIATION FROM ABROAD.>>I THINK WHAT THE PRESIDENT WAS SAYING IS THAT BECAUSE WE HAVE A BIG DEFICIT IN THE OTHER SIDE HAD BIG GAMES THROUGH TRADE, THEY HAVE MUCH MORE TO LOSE IN THE PERIOD THAT WE DO. I DON’T THINK THE RETALIATION IS LIKELY TO BE ON STEEL AS SUCH. IF IT DOES FIND ANYTHING, THERE WILL BE SOME PRODUCT IN A KEY STATE TO TRY TO GET MITCH McCONNELL OR PAUL RYAN FEELING SOME PRESSURE. TRAGIC JON HILSENRATH, JON HILSENRATH, THIS IS THE BIG DEBATE STORY ON FRIDAY OVER THE WEEKEND WAS E.U. COMING OUT AND SAYING WE WILL PUT TARIFFS ON THE ROAD IN PLACE.>>YOUR INTERVIEW WAS REALLY INTERESTING BECAUSE THESE ARE DOING EVERYBODY CALM DOWN. THIS IS A BIG DEAL. $3 BILLION IN TARIFFS FROM THE E.U. ON THINGS LIKE HARLEY DAVIDSON MOTORCYCLES. BUT THE PRESIDENT IS SAYING THIS IS A BIG DEAL. IT WILL CHANGE TRADE FOR THE WHOLE WORLD THAT WILL FINALLY START WINNING. THERE’S A DISCONNECT BETWEEN WHAT THE COMMERCE SECRETARY IS SAYING. WHAT REALLY MATTERS IS WHAT HAPPENS WITH PRICES. A LOT OF TALK ABOUT BEING SMALL IN AMOUNT. OUR BILL IS GOING TO GO UP FOR CARS AND WASHING MACHINES. TREE INTO A DISCUSSED THIS ON FRIDAY AFTER THAT JOURNAL OP-ED WHERE THEY LET TRUMPS TERROR FOLLY. WILBUR ROSS BASICALLY SAID THESE ARE VERY INSIGNIFICANT PRICE INCREASES. WE TALKED ABOUT THE IDEA OF A CASE OF. THIS IS NOT ONE CASE BEING CONSUMED A YEAR. BUT EVEN HE SAID CARS ARE NOT SEEING ANY SIGNIFICANT AS THE JOURNAL HAS WORRIED ABOUT. DAGEN: I TREATED THIS ON FRIDAY. I THINK THAT’S A RUSE, A DISTRACTION AWAY FROM THE POTENTIALLY CREDIBLY DESTRUCT THE IMPACT OF TARIFF ON ALUMINA AND STEAL BECAUSE IT’S NOT JUST ABOUT RAISING PRICES. BY THE WAY, THIS COULD JEOPARDIZE MANY MORE JOBS THAN IT WOULD EVER SAVE BUT IT’S ABOUT THE RETALIATION FROM NATIONS WITH WHOM WE TRADE. AGAIN, THEY’RE PLAYING DESPITE THESE TARIFFS ON NATIONS THAT ARE OUR ALLIES THAT WE NEED IN TERMS OF NATIONAL SECURITY. I WILL POINT OUT A COUPLE OF THINGS BECAUSE SECRETARY RAWSON ALSO PETER NAVARRO WERE ON TV ALL WEEKEND AS WELL AND THIS IS A DROP IN THE BUCKET COMPARED TO OUR OVERALL ECONOMY. IT’S ONLY $9 BILLION IN TOTAL TARIFF VALUE. DO THE MATH ON THAT. THAT IS ESSENTIALLY PAID 5 MILLION TO $6 MILLION PER STEEL JOB. HOW DOES THAT MATH WORK OUT? TO THE WHITE HOUSE, WHEN YOU HAVE LARRY KUDLOW, ART LAFFER IN STEPHEN MOORE, CRITICAL ECONOMIC ADVISERS TO THIS PRESIDENT’S PROGROWTH AGENDA COMING OUT IN THE HILL OVER THE WEEKEND AND TELLING HIM WHAT A BAD IDEA THIS IS.>>NOT ONLY BANNED, BUT IT’S INTERESTING WHO WE DIDN’T SEE THIS WEEKEND TALKING ABOUT THE TARIFFS. WE DIDN’T SEE HIS TOP ECONOMIC ADVISER AND WE DIDN’T SEE STEVE MNUCHIN TALKING ABOUT IT AND DEFENDING IT. DAGEN: SECRETARY OF DEFENSE JAMES MATTIS, REPORTS THAT HE’S VERY UPSET ABOUT THIS BECAUSE YOU ARE SLAPPING A TARIFF ON SOUTH KOREAN STEEL. THOUGH AGAIN, IT IS MORE THAN JUST YOUR SIX PACK OF BEER IS GOING UP IN YOUR CAN OF SOUP AND IN TERMS OF MESSAGING, I DON’T KNOW WHO ORCHESTRATED THAT. THAT DID NOT LOOK GOOD LAST WEEK.>>THE MESSAGE IT IS REALLY TOUGH, ESPECIALLY FOR THOSE REALLY FAMILIAR WITH THE ISSUE. THAT SAID, A LOT OF AMERICANS IN THE STATE THAT VOTED FOR HIM, HERE’S A STORY ABOUT TRADE AND THEY ARE EXCITED ABOUT IT. THEY ARE SAVING JOBS, GOING TO MAKE THINGS FAIR AGAIN, MAKING THINGS RIGHT AGAIN. I DON’T KNOW WHY THEY’RE SO SURPRISED THE PRESIDENT IS DOING IT BECAUSE HE’S GOING TO DO IT. MY QUESTION IS THIS ANOTHER ONE OF THE PRESIDENTS NEGOTIATING STRATEGIES, WHICH IS LESS OR SOMETHING OUT THERE, CREATE A LOT OF CHAOS, CONVERSATION AND IT GETS ROLLED BACK. DAGEN: THERE WAS A HEADLINE YESTERDAY. I COULDN’T FIND ANYTHING, SAYING CHINA’S CUTTING IMPORT TARIFFS FOR VEHICLES AS WELL AS CONSUMER GOODS. I AM WONDERING IF THIS IS ALREADY STOKING CHANGES COMING OUT OF CHINA JUST BECAUSE OF A NEGOTIATING STANCE. WE CANNOT RULE THAT OUT THIS IS PLAYING POKER.>>WE ALSO HAD PRESIDENT XI JINPING’S TOP ECONOMIC ADVISER IN WASHINGTON LAST WEEK TRYING TO ATTACK THE PRESIDENT TALK THE PRESIDENT IN THE WHITE HOUSE BACK FROM TAKING DEPTH LIKE THIS. THIS HAS GOTTEN THE ATTENTION OF THE CHINESE. THEY HAVE THE MOST TO LOSE. MARIA: DO THINK THEY’RE CUTTING IMPORT TARIFFS ON VEHICLES AND CONSUMER GOODS AS A RESULT OF THIS? DAGEN: COULD BE FOR EVERYBODY THAT THE UNITED STATES. LET’S WAIT AND SEE. MARIA: TO UNDERLINE THIS POINT, NAVARRO AND WILBUR ROSS SAYING THERE WON’T BE ANY EXEMPTIONS. MAYBE SOME COUNTRIES WOULD BE EXEMPT FROM SOME OF THIS.>>SOME OF THE CHALLENGES THAT THIS WILL DO IS WE DON’T REPORT A LOT DIRECTLY ANYMORE BECAUSE WE HAVE IMPOSE DUTIES ON OUR CHINESE IMPORTS. WE GET MOST OF OUR STEEL FROM CHINA. I’M SORRY, FROM CANADA. ARE WE GOING TO ACTUALLY BE HITTING THE CULPRIT IN THIS GLOBAL STEEL BY DOING THIS? EUROPE SAY E-MAIL. DAGEN: WE ARE HURTING OUR GREATEST ECONOMIC ALLY. IN CANADA YOU ARE DOING ABROAD THESE TARIFFS. MARIA: TALKS ARE CONTINUING RIGHT NOW.>>THIS DEAL THAT ISN’T GOING TO GET DUMPED IN THE U.S. IS INSTEAD DUMPED ON THEM. THEY’VE BEEN FIGHTING REALLY HARD TO GET US TO WORK WITH THEM TO DO SOMETHING TO TEAM UP ON CHINA.>>KUDLOW, LAFFER AND MORE SHOULD EXAMINE THE HISTORICAL RECORD ON TARIFFS BECAUSE THEY’VE ALMOST NEVER WORK AS INTENDED AND MAY GO THROUGH SMOOT-HAWLEY TARIFFS IN 1929 THAT DROVE US INTO THE GREAT DEPRESSION. THE STAGFLATION IN THE 70s BECAUSE THE IMPORT SURCHARGE PUT ON BY RICHARD NIXON. GEORGE BUSH AGAIN DESTROYED MORE JOBS AT THIS 2002 STEEL TARIFF THAT EXISTED IN THE STEEL INDUSTRY AT THAT TIME. BY THE WAY, LEE, OHIO, MICHIGAN, PENNSYLVANIA. THOSE WERE THE STATES DURING THE 2002 STEEL TARIFFS HARDEST HIT BY THE JOB LOSSES IN OTHER INJURIES. NOT STEEL, BUT THE INDUSTRIES YOU STEEL.>>AS THEY MIGHT RELATE TODAY, PRESIDENT BUSH REVERSE THAN A YEAR LATER. MARIA: THAT’S A GOOD POINT. YOU MENTIONED CHINA. NOW SAY A 6.5%. COMPARE THAT TO WHAT IS HAPPENING HERE ABOUT 3% DOWN FROM THE GROWTH RATE OF 6.9% LAST YEAR, BUT 6% IS A SERIOUS NUMBER.>>SO MARCH OF 2018. HERE’S A PREDICTION I CAN MAKE FOR A HEADLINE. IN DECEMBER THIS YEAR OR JANUARY, THE CHINESE WILL SAY THEIR GROWTH WAS SIX-FOOT 7%. THEY SAY THIS IS UTTER GROWTH IS GOING TO BE AND WE END UP GETTING. PARTLY BECAUSE OF THE NUMBERS, BUT THEY WILL DO ANYTHING TO REACH THEIR TARGETS. YOU MAKE A LOT OF MISTAKES WHEN THEY POINT OUT ALL THE STOCK.

  1. Trump has driven a huge wedge between American people, now he's intent on doing it to America's allies – Russia and China are not looking more favourable now, at least they are predictable.

  2. When a spokesman opens with "I think what he was saying…….." – really means he (the president) doesn't know what he's talking about. As for American cars exported to the EU – they're nowhere close to meeting emission standards …. that's why the US imports cars from the EU …. one way traffic ! This is getting closer and closer to meltdown.

  3. It is so sad that all you guys can talk about is how we are hurting out partners, what about how they have been hurting us? You are on the wrong side of the debate, your argument is for them and not the US. Can you not see how that strengthens those on the other side?

    Why not stand with our President and strengthen his argument, instead of the standing with the other side????

  4. The reason we don’t buy your cars isn’t because of the price, we just don’t buy your cars because they’re trash !!😂

  5. Trump takes actions with little thought of the consequences. He does something then roles it back, then starts it up again.. As soon as there is push back against it he makes an exception for some country or another, especially if the country gives Jared some money, Its a total roller coaster. Not a way to run an economy. Other countries are starting to learn that they can't trust the United States.

  6. I'll trust Trump, Just about everything he has done for America has worked so far.
    Wawawawawa let's see what happens.
    America is being rolled and has been for years.
    Go president Trump Were with you

  7. Gee schoolyard bully Trump will put Tariffs on imported luxury cars so that his rich constituents will pay more?… lmao Wealthy American's don't drive US cars they drive imported cars! Trump is making America the laughing stock of the world and the world is treating the USA as irrelevant. Trump allegedly drives a Mercedes, a Rolls Royce and a Lamborghini – OOPS! he doesn't support America. What percent of Trump goods that he and his family sell are made in the USA? The world needs a strong America not a Trump America! Putin must be laughing! 🙂

  8. Once again this has been going on forever. Only Trump decided to make a big deal over nothing, then hurt the U.S. if this goes long term

  9. DNC or DNC controlled media telling Trump how economics works is laughable when they created this mess. How can allowing our trading partners to put up huge barriers to our products be good for the USA? Unless you want to destroy our great country. They are pathologically insane.

  10. Another humiliating screw up from Trump as usual. The EU is 27 countries, we have far more economic leverage than the US who has also hit at Canada, Mexico and Japan. Nice one Trumpy not only are you isolated on the political stage. You have lost all the importance the US once had and turned you and it, into a pathetic laughing stock with no respect. Wake up America to this fraud, failed businessman, crook and childish, narcissistic, Russian slave!

  11. Trump is a smart businessman, I stand behind our government’s decision when is made based on the best interest of the American people’s & for America!

    Read the comment columns for yourself, how many of you none American here gives shXt about American people ? You all pointing fingers at us about everything that isn’t going your wishful way or for your country. IT ISN’T AMERICAN PEOPLE’S FAULT when you and your country on the opposite side and is not a big deal when a new rule or a new policy cause disagreements between countries, because there is no ONE FITS FOR ALL POLICY, if there is that magic policy then we’ll be singing world peace eons ago.

    I have not see any of you taking you issues to your government for solution, we the American people is not the cause if you living in a ShXthole, with little or no education.
    What you need is to seek medical help for your emotional imbalance problem, go back to school if you lack words or knowledge when being confronted, question your government why your country is not as strong as America, be resourceful in finding answers “Google It” economy, history, law, policies, UN, EU, NATO, wars….etc. beforehand so you won’t feel being intimidated by us when engaging in subjects. If use foul language and show disrespectfulness , we’ll double it back at you, because you ask for it!

    We had helped and made numerous donations worldwide, how come no one mention any of the good deeds?
    Bunch mind twisted haters! Peace & out!

  12. Why not take a deeper look into multinational corporations who have lobbyists tailing behinds lawmakers and persuading them to pass laws on trade. You might uncover who the culprits are and will realize that this seeming imbalance in trade is not directly a result of pure and unblemished governmental policies.

  13. Trump imposes illegal tariffs on allies.
    Allies impose tariffs on Trump.
    Trump gets angry at legal retaliation and blames them.

    Fuck sake…

  14. Conservatives… Liberals… whatever. You're all so caught up with hating eachother that it blinds you to the truth. Trying to fix an entire nation with only conservative or liberal ideologies exclusively is like trying to fix a car with one hand. One side of the brain. One eye. It will be impossibly, frustratingly difficult. And that's what the Trump campaign has been founded on- capitalizing "us vs. them." Right vs. Left. Those who kneel vs. those who stand. America vs. the World. And we're all going to suffer because of it. When that happens, remember. We were all responsible. Left or right. This route will only make us weaker.

  15. These idiots don’t understand tariffs are on raw materials not finished products I import from China You people need to study your facts before broadcasting nonsense

  16. It might be useful to remember that the EU and the US were negotiating a free trade when Trump entered office. This agreement foresaw among other things the abolishment almost all tariffs. Trumps stopped the process…likely because it was part of the legacy of Obama. Now he thinks the best way of negation is by threating allies…

  17. Our allies need us WAY more. Sorry thats just objectively true. In the hour of need, i hope we let them burn a little. Just a little. To remind them that if they dont want to put the money down for defense, then they should at least treat fairly the country that does and has for decades.

  18. We produce 1/10 the steel that China does and less than Japan. Japan ! An island country smaller than many of our states. HELLO ! We need a steel industry to defend ourselves.

  19. So idoits, critical of him, why I voted for him, it's about 'merica not just one but all! F, Canada shut them down, PL tell me how remain the top nation, w/o steel, Please do you want US to go thru what GB did and build planes out of plywood? Shut CA down and buy it pennies on the dollar!

  20. Oh, come on! Don't act like there were no tarrifs on foreign goods. The overall ratio of tarrifs between the US and foreign countries is pretty balanced.
    Cherry picking one example and simply ignoring US tarrifs on foreign products, while pretending to be treated unfair is misleading and dishonest.

  21. Predominantly a globalist agenda by Fox business. Screw the jobs, let the globalists grow richer, you know, those guys that pay our salaries.

  22. The Eu and the U.K., don't hold any aces up their sleeves. They've been exposed as unfair trade partners and now bitch and whine like children! Wtf , duh!

  23. We have no allies when it comes to trade. Everyone is scewing us. It's time to take what's ours. The cry babies will whine about how Trudeau is upset. WHO CARES how soyboy Trudeau feels. Hes a traitor and now wants to economically destroy canada. Impeach him!!!

  24. if we moved a few of our armoured divisions to our border with Europe they would soon back down and beg for mercy.

  25. They're talking about the guy who wrote The Art Of The Deal. It doesn't matter how it LOOKS it matters how it ends.

    For example, I just played a game of online chess. My opponent had me screwed three ways from Sunday. He got over confident and I was able to checkmate him (or her) with one move and one piece. I spotted the opportunity and set it up starting 5 moves ahead. My opponent had to be blinded to his glaring oversight. AND he had to do everything as I planned. He did…checkmate.

    The point is that President Trump is playing 3 dimensional chess while even his own advisors are seeing a horizontal board. He knows what he's doing. He's a streetfighter. Doesn't matter what tactics one uses. The object is to win. One doesn't show mercy in the middle of the fight. One shows mercy when the razor's edge is against the neck and they're begging for their life. He's not a multi-billionaire because he's stupid, crazy or born w/a silver spoon. He's ruthless, relentless and fearless. AND he LOVES the USA for f**k's sake.

  26. This is the way those lunatic left-wing EU buracrates think. You can't talk to them, they don't know how to negotiate. Just put tariffs on them, and wait for them to ask for a deal. Anything else won't work.

    The EU keep telling the UK how they will break our economy if we don't give them stuff. Unfortunately Teresa May is weak and stupid, we're getting ripped off. Don't back down, your saving your own business sectors. The EU has destroyed the UK steel, ship building, mining, fishing industries. Don't let it happen to you because soverignty goes once your dependent on them.

    Take the pain now whilst you're in control. It's harder when they have already destroyed key industries.

  27. the comments r so funny, people have really no idea what they r talking about. Who made this anti american trade deals? it was u to protect your own industry. they have much higher tariffs on our products! no, tariffs r just different from which kind of goods u export. u have high tariffs on that EU has high tariffs on that cars for example, but they r the same around the world. u r not competitive in exports, because u let china take big parts of the market. europe specialized on Pharma electronics renewable energy…. u still dream of coal and steel. at least trump still lives in the 60s.

  28. As an american trump fan, i can say that its not cause of tariffs that american cars arent selling…the cars themselves SUCK!!

  29. I once had a friend. Since college, um 40 years.
    I was always there for him. Rain or shine, morning, noon, or night. No excuses.
    One day, needed to get my Dad's P/U truck, if not gonna lose it. We made arrangements, he was supposed to give me a ride.
    The specified time came and went, sez I, "What happened?" Sez he, " Oh I didn't feel well, forgot" Never talked to him since.

  30. Absolutely….Germany…like Japan…let's few, if ANY, foreign goods to cross it's borders. That's WHY Germany AND Japan enjoy a 2:1 positive trade balance with the USA.

  31. DUH! If tariffs and trade barriers are so bad…WHY do China…Japan….and..Germany impose tariffs on almost ALL foreign goods…and PROSPER! While WE have no tariffs…and are going to the poor farm? These talking heads are true puppets of the Deep State globalists.

  32. Smoot-Hawley was a tariff on European goods when we had a 5:3 trade advantage with Europe. OF COURSE that tariff would damage us when the Europeans imposed tariffs on our goods. That's NOT the case now….with China (4:1)….Germany (2:1)….Japan (2:1)….Mexico (5:4). Equating our current situation to that just before the Great Depression is a bold faced lie…Fox News Commentator!

  33. When you threaten someone and they face off the bully ( you ), don't push farther because you know when you start a ( trade ) war but not if you can finish it as the winner.
    " If your opponent is temperamental, seek to irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he will grow arrogant. If he is taking his ease, give him no rest. If his forces are united, separate them. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected." Sun Tzu " the Art of War"
    Any leader knows this book, but D Trump doesn't like to read ( or can't ).

  34. The trade imbalance is huge and the idiot on the show is becoming emotional with the other countries.. are we missing something here..😏

  35. America does not need allies that mooch and protect their economies to the detriment of the American economy. Trump is an earthquake. This guy knows his business. Trudeau for my part, is a clown. Trump is a master businessman. Canada for Trump!!

  36. We in the EU are a people of half a billion people, not some banana republic, bring it on if you must……….stupid.

  37. We have no friends, they are all looking out for themselves. lay those tariffs on them, prices of goods will be dictated by the market values.

  38. I don't know about you, but I wake up glad knowing that Norway and Finland are on that wall watching over our national security. Those Fins don't need our Tanks or Bombers to feel safe at all. Nothing ever happens over there in Europe. Now we go back to the real Earth and shake our heads….You dumb leftist would be Russian slaves by now or Kneeling towards Mecca 10 times a day. And you will when the U.S. is to broke to care. Screw you and your BMWS. Glass bottles are better than cans in every way. We got more sand ( Glass) than God on our coasts. Where does all that silicone come from ? This is the one time France should surrender. lol ….to Pres Trump.

  39. Let those europeans rot.
    Colonization was over decades ago and america does not give a fuck about the old fart world.

  40. So jealous from Australia you have a President who puts America first – awesome!!!! I think all our politicians had sold us out to the NWO so let Trump go ahead and do his thing. You were going backwards with Obama so what's to lose.

  41. EU has more to lose than we do, Canada has more to lose than we do, China has more to lose than we do. So let's take on them together at the same time, fuck mathematics addition, they have more to lose combined than we do!

  42. Hey if they can put tarrif's on us we can hand them some to, don't like it don't do it, period the problem is theirs to many bullies trying to bully us, well we got a man in office now who knows how to handle bullies and put them in there place:

  43. The best part about this is that most of you have no clue what the tariff will mean for you at the store. The tariffs TRUMP is proposing will be paid for by YOU. Not the countries that the tariffs are applied to. It hurts those countries because YOU will not be able to buy as much crap not because it'll cost them more to bring it in.

    The saddest part is that to be able to manufacturer at a level that would actually swing the economy back to American made products would mean slave wages in those sectors unless the tariffs were so high that you could not afford to buy anything but American.

    This is a fools game and your all being played.

  44. Trump, you forget that the US is already isolated by 75 % of the world but not Europe, we'll find other ways to sell our stuff, you're just counting on the differends of those 120 billion that we export more to the US then the US to Europe. Europe to US -> 360 billion, US to Europe 240 billion, our products are just better, that's all !!!Don't underestimate Europe !!!

  45. You that trumpsnd you will lose the toris firvye Americans who vacation there even though the can’t the US they are just being civilized and Thad it .

  46. What a bunch of goddamn nonsense. There are plenty of US products for sale in Europe, even in the small village I live in. If you want to sell more US made cars here, make better and more economical ones and we will buy them. If you want to sell anything here, be competitive, that's how free trade works. Try to shove it down our throats or coerce us to buy anything, and you won't be able to give it away. A "businessman" like Trump should know that. I don't mind the disagreement, I mind the lack of manners. Please elect somebody with some decent manners next time, because nobody is impressed by this amateurish excuse for a bully.

  47. Trump wants to destroy the EU so that he could fuck each and every European country as he wishes… or as Russia wishes! Long live Europe! Europe is ground Zero… the cradle of civilization and liberty! The holy Continent! Don't fuck with us!!!! We are not Iraq, Vietnam or Afghanistan! This is Europe! Trump thinks he can just keep pushing and bullying us… but he doesn't realize that Europe is self-sufficient and more than capable to provide itself with everything from a needle to a satellite. Europe will prevail, and will last! Eastern Europe exists because the European countries were separated and the fucking communists of the ex-USSR took advantage of that and enslaved eastern Europe, country by country. Putin longs for the olden days and would love to enslave Europe again. But what Putin doesn't know is that we are not our Grandparents… he can fuck his Alt-right-neo-communism! A united Europe is stronger than Trump and Putin together!

  48. Trump opened a can of worms that the US citizen will pay for in higher prices and jobs lost. Trump the man-child doesn't understand that tariffs are like sanctions. They are an attack on another countries economy considered an act of war by reasonable people. That is why it is called a trade war. Like all unnecessary wars it will be the common consumer that will foot the bill.

  49. It is interesting when Trump blames China for the trade deficit when in reality it was American companies that moved their manufacturing to China making China an industrial giant and the US their biggest consumer. Tariffs won't fix that!

  50. All countries will go to other countries an will not deal with USA we loose not them we will be taking out of everything an this country will be left an a Civil War an there will be no army willing to kill there own family as there family is trying to kill everyone in the house an are president that don't care about us

  51. If there were no tariffs for everyone, trade will be completely dependent on competition, quality and price of items going back and forth between all countries. If we apply the theory of a Capitalism and Free Enterprise, the consumers will eventually be the winners with cheaper and better quality products.

  52. The EU is already surrendering to US trade war threats. Trump is a genius. Abolish the EU. We'd like to trade directly with individual EUropean countries.

  53. INCREASES TARIFFS IS NOT THE ANSWER.
    CUT SPENDINGS ON WAR ARSENALS.
    ALL THE NEW AIRCRAFTS CARRIERS ARE FROM BORROWED MONIES.

  54. AT last an Americian Government standing up for America, we IN Guyana south America buy americian and Japenese cars, Trump is the best.

  55. So let me get this straight the other side is making more profits cause the American companies can't compete on both quality and cost so they punish the winner ! And this comes from the beacon of capitalism who lectured the world for decades of the benefits of free market economy for the human progress ! Such an empire of hypocrisy this united States.

  56. Trump's an economic idiot! He's gone bankrupt 6 or more times. Successful businessman? Yeah his father was, he lost that money and now he's heading for the biggest bankruptcy of them all . . . . the US economy. He'll say . . . . "to hell with it, we'll just not pay our debts" . . . . yeah he's done that before too.
    Economic super cycle is ending and another beginning next year and that's when when recession hits and if you can't service for debts (yeah you can service debts by having a trade war with basically, the world) recession turns to a depression. It will be Trump's depression and it will be larger than the one in the 1930's.
    There are many county's in the US that are having difficulty delivering basic services to their communities, so much so that towns are left abandoned.
    The US Federal government will have a cash flow problem and cuts will have to be made, mostly to services to the population. However their are many facilities that require constant maintenance and improvement of safety features. These will be affected too. The crumbling of an empire. What happened to the former Soviet Union? Ran out of money, hence . . . . Chernobyl. The US can't even look after their war veterans. Been to LA lately? Homeless veterans lining the streets.
    The fall of the New Rome!! Trump is Nero, but instead of playing the fiddle, he's playing with himself. Great choice for President . . . . NOT!!

  57. Do it NOW. Congress is not their to help Trump, he doesn’t need them, Trump proves he is more effective than Congress. You don’t need the EU, Nigel Farage and Brexit has just proved the people are fed up. The Yellowjacket in France. You owe Americans not the EU. If there is an imbalance in tariffs, then do something about it. If you can’t play Poker don play at the same table as Trump. America First.
