“The Trump administration proposed tariffs of up to 100% against $2.4 billion of French imports, saying the tariffs are justified because of a new digital-services tax imposed by France that weighs heavily on U.S. technology companies,” the Wall Street Journal reports.

Washington Post: “Monday’s protectionist flurry came as the president’s ‘America First’ trade policy remains bogged down at the negotiating table and on Capitol Hill less than a year before the 2020 election.”

1. No Shit AG

Of course, if The Republicans got away with the trashing the American farmers entire futures, what's the problem with grapes and milk?

Besides, the uber can just jump on their personal jets and go over there anytime they want, and stay as long as they want......

3. All Trump is doing is giving China a strong foothold in Europe.

China is about four times larger than us. The net number of it's middleclass and rich is larger than ours and growing. Europe has a lot of upside marketing certain products to China that Trump's tariffs punish. In addition, China has tech companies that are starting to rival our's, tariffs will push Europe right into the arms of those companies.

4. That is scary as China rates people on how quiet they are on china's human

rights abuses. If Europe gets closer to China it will include moral corruption and anti-democratic ideas china is now exporting.
