Trump fires up trade war rhetoric, threatens EU with tax on European cars

President Trump on Saturday threatened the European Union with a tax on cars made in Europe, responding to E.U. pushback against his proposed steel and aluminum tariffs — the latest fiery rhetoric in a brewing trade war.

“If the E.U. wants to further increase their already massive tariffs and barriers on U.S. companies doing business there, we will simply apply a Tax on their Cars which freely pour into the U.S.,” Trump said on Twitter.

rump’s battle cry came after his announcement Thursday of a 25 percent tariff on steel imports and 10 percent of aluminum imports roiled global markets and angered world leaders.

Among them was European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, who said Friday that the E.U. could impose tariffs on Harley Davidsons, Levi jeans and bourbon.

    Simple to fix this.

    Just match all foreign tarriffs imposed on US products over there, back on their products here in the USA

    What people don’t realize is that we are already in a trade war and have been for the past 50 years or so.It is just that our brain dead so called leaders have done nothing about it while they dream about some sort of utopia where everyone in the world tries to be fair, but this is not a fair world. Our industries have been devastated by unfair business tactics of other nations and our brain dead so called leaders have done nothing about it. Finally, Donald Trump comes along and tells them that crap is going to end and all the morons in this country say that he is going to start a trade war. How is he going to start a trade war that has been going on for the past 50 years or so? No, he is just recognizing that a trade war has been going on against us for a long time and he is doing something about it. GO TRUMP!!!
