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, "Let’s 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.
I asked White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, who was also in the Cabinet Room for this Trump-Macron meeting, about this exchange. She told me: "The broader point of the conversation was them wanting to work together to do something to fix the system."
Next he'll be saying Canada is worse than Russia.
Canada hasn't gifted his family any generous contracts so yeah, that will happen in the near future.
'At least, China gave me money and approved patents for my daughter. What a great country.'
Trademarks. They bribe via trademarks. Ivanka hasn't invented shit.
And trademarks are mostly meaningless in 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.”
Most of the luxury German brands which are sold in the US are ALSO manufactured here aswell, this blabbering idiot has no idea what he is saying
Possibly, but the real kicker is he's a lazy fuck and has no interest in educating himself. He assumes mastery over subjects he knows nothing about, which makes him dangerously ignorant as a negotiator.
Which is compounded by his narcissism; he cares more about appealing to his crowd of supporters than getting a better deal for America, and he doesn't understand our current deals or even what's at stake on the negotiating table.
It's like putting a belligerent toddler in charge of launching a rocket.
I never realized MAGA required us to be BFFs with China, North Korea, and Russia, while giving the middle finger to friends like Canada, France, and the UK. Sounds like the opposite from basically everything we learned in history.
