Honestly, I think the President has us tyrannical and warmongering Canadians dead to rights in being a national security threat to the United States. Please don't tell him about the Pig War. He might demand that restitution be paid regarding those stolen potatoes.

Well YES actually to both statements.

Stephen Miller is, as we speak, getting War Plan Red converted into a graphic novel sprinkled with soft porn and references to Trump so that Trump can read it.

CNN
Trade clash: EU to hit US with $3.3 billion in tariffs next month

The European Union's plan to impose tariffs on roughly €2.8 billion ($3.3 billion) worth of American goods will go into effect in early July, the European Commission said Wednesday.


The duties aim to punch back at the United States after the Trump administration last week moved forward with hefty import taxes on steel and aluminum on some of its closest allies, including Canada, Mexico and the 28-nation European Union. ...

EU officials last week lodged a formal complaint with the World Trade Organization.

The stakes in a trade war are high: The United States and the European Union trade just over €1 trillion ($1.2 trillion) in goods and services each year.

The EU's retaliatory tariffs were expected. When the Trump administration first floated the idea of steel and aluminum tariffs in March, the European Union delineated exactly which American goods it planned to hit back at if Washington moved forward. They include denim, orange juice, bourbon, motorcycles, peanut butter, motor boats and cigarettes.

And if the trade dispute continues or is not resolved by the WTO, a second batch of American exports worth around €3.7 billion ($4.3 billion) a year could eventually be targeted. The list includes roughly 160 products such as US sunbeds, paper towels, corduroy pants and porcelain tableware that could face EU tariffs between 10% to 50%.

My fear du jour: Let's say we win the house and at least hold steady in the senate (or win it, but not holding my breath). By then, Trump's crappy trade policies start tanking the economy and the GOP goes into 2020 saying "Everything was GREAT until the dems took over!"

Yes, that's undoubtedly the plan (and has happened before, I'm sure). I'm not sure why people are fundamentally unable to understand long-term thinking and complexity of actions/reactions.

Isn't that what usually happens? GoP does something that gets a brief economic boost, tanks the economy, hand the government over to the democrats, then blame them for the mess while they clean it up, and then swoop back in while the economy is strong to take credit.

According to the TrumpFluffers, he radically turned around the economy and unemployment. But the trend established by Obama is simply continuing.

Chuck Schumer

@SenSchumer
.@realDonaldTrump should be aiming his trade fire at China, but instead he inexplicably aims it at allies like Canada, Mexico and Europe. When it comes to China, despite his tough talk, this deal with ZTE proves the president just shoots blanks.

The people are not stupid. If they were we would not have made it this far. Hillary may be this stupid.

I really have no idea what this means, and I have no idea what Clinton has to do with this. I’m speaking about “Trump’s Trade Follicy.” That’s all I’m going to say.

Breaking News. - The G7 are telling the USA that they will do an agreement without the USA's participation or Agreement

http://washingtonsource.org/breaking-g7 ... -agreement
BREAKING: Trump And U.S. To Be Excluded From The G7 Summit Agreement
Emma Waters

The G7 summit, otherwise known as the “Group of Seven,” the countries with the seven largest advanced economies in the world, are warning President Trump that they are planning to come to an agreement without him and the United States.

The summit is to meet on Friday, June 8, in La Malbaie, Quebec, Canada.

French President Emmanuel Macron first sounded the alarm, saying on Twitter that the countries should not rule it out based on Trump’s behavior. He sent the tweet out in French, but we will translate for you:
The will to have a text signed by 7 countries must not be stronger than the content of that text. On principle, we must not rule out a 6+1 agreement.” #G7Charlevoix
Immediately after Macron sent this out, CNN Chief National Security Correspondent Jim Sciutto remarked:
Remarkable: as G7 faces existential threat from Russia, French President says 6 members are willing make a summit statement without US participation or agreement.”
This is practically unheard of, and the ramifications on the United States economy would be considerable. Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United Kingdom, along with the United States command 46% of the world’s net worth. Excluding the U.S. from the decision making process is probably something the Trump administration didn’t consider.

AAAAAnd here's the reaction of the ALPHA MALE president... He immediatly runs away.
The White House announced on Thursday night that President Trump will not stay until the end of the G7 summit in Quebec, departing Saturday morning.

The summit starts Friday and ends Saturday night, and by leaving early, Trump will miss sessions on climate change, clean energy, and the ocean, in addition to a group photo with other global leaders and a final news conference. The White House said he will leave at 10:30 a.m., and head straight to Singapore, where he is scheduled to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Tuesday.

The news of Trump's early departure came after both French President Emmanuel Macron and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said they would confront Trump at the summit about new tariffs he imposed on U.S. allies. Earlier in the evening, Macron tweeted about Trump being excluded from the traditional joint statement signed by leaders at the end of the G7 summit, saying Trump "may not mind being isolated, but neither do we mind signing a 6 country agreement if need be."
So, now we have the US running away from an G7 meeting to meet a North Korean tinpot dictator. Let that sink in.
