Trump tells Macron the EU is "worse" than China

When French President Emmanuel Macron visited Washington, he and President Trump had a tough conversation about trade that foreshadowed the breakdown of transatlantic relations at the G7 summit.

What happened: In their bilateral meeting in the White House's Cabinet Room, on April 24, Macron said to Trump, "Letís work together, we both have a China problem," according to a source in the room. The source said Trump responded that the European Union is "worse than China."

"He then went on a rant about Germany and cars," the source added. (In their private meetings Trump has taken Angela Merkel to task for her country's tariffs on U.S. automobiles and the ease with which German carmakers like Mercedes, Volkswagen and BMW can sell into the U.S. market.)


Trump also says that America has a fairly balanced trading relationship with France but that the U.S-European trading relationship is very unfair.

3. Putins' goal was to alienate the U.S. from Europe...he has succeeded.

He has a well-played puppet.

4. If US automakers made autos as good as the German and Japanese ones

 

with the mileage of the German and Japanese ones, Americans would buy more US cars.

Americans don't buy British or French or Swedish or Italian cars in the numbers that they buy German and Japanese cars. There is a reason for that.
