BRUSSELS CAVES TO TRUMP OVER "TRADE WAR"

America First, means putting the rights of the people and their national interests before everyone else's. It is why we elect and pay our politicians. Globalists do the exact opposite by sacrificing their people's interests to a perceived 'higher cause' nebulously referred to as "world peace" or "cooperation". But trade means, the voluntary exchange of one value for another. There is reciprocity in free trade. President Trump understands the principle. 


UPDATE: The EU operates as one trading bloc. But actually, it's just Germany the US has a gargantuan trade deficit with. European solidarity does not reach so far that the rest of the EU would risk a trade war with the Trump administration over. So this did not take long, as expected. "Brussels caves to Trump"...
Brussels officials are looking to negotiate a new deal with the US President, who is a fierce critic of the EU's trade policy. The EU currently imposes tariffs of 10 percent on imports of US-built cars, compared to Washington's 2.5 percent levy on European car imports. Any move to lower the punitive tariffs would be warmly welcomed by Mr Trump. The news comes ahead of a meeting between European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and the US leader later this month. (...) EU leaders have ruled out making major concessions to Washington, instead vowing to defend their economic interests. They signed a joint statement last week backing "safeguarding measures to protect our own markets" amid the trade war. At a meeting with Dutch leader Mark Rutte on Monday, Mr Trump said it would be "positive" if the EU trade dispute was not resolved. Mr Rutte responded bluntly: "It's not positive. We have to work something out." Meanwhile, Angela Merkel revealed Mr Juncker would "submit proposals setting out what we can do" during his meeting with Mr Trump. (More)

(VIDEO) FULL TRUMP INTERVIEW WITH MARIA BARTIROMO




July 1, 2018 President Trump's Full Interview with Maria Bartiromo.

President Trump sat down with Fox News's Maria Bartiromo for a economy oriented interview on Sunday. It is now clear not all observers understand that tariffs are not the end object of Trump trade policies. The end goal is the abolition of tariffs. When he dropped this proposal during the G7 summit, the leaders screaming the loudest quickly changed the subject. Knowing President Trump, he will reach his goal sooner or later. A day before the Dutch PM's visit to the White House the President said this (with the best intentions of course):

(VIDEO) TRUMP EXPLAINS G7 DUST UP




June 12, 2018 President Trump explains dust up with Justin. 

President Trump revealed he and German Chancellor Angela Merkel were not actually in the middle of a confrontational moment when a now-viral photo was taken during the G-7 summit. (...) We have a very big trade deficit with Canada. They don’t take our farm products,” Trump told reporters. (...) The president had left the G-7 summit in agreement with the joint statement (or communique) following the summit but backed out, slamming Trudeau, after his backstabbing behavior. “When I got out to the plane, I think that Justin probably didn’t know that Air Force One has about 20 televisions. And I see the television and he’s giving a news conference about how he will not be pushed around by the United States and I say push him around? We just shook hands. (...) "he assumed I was in an airplane and I wasn’t watching," Trump continued, warning that Canadians will pay a high price for Trudeau’s actions. “That’s going to cost a lot of money for the people of Canada,” Trump said. “He learned. You can’t do that. You can’t do that.” (More)
