NY Times: As E.U. and Japan Strengthen Trade Ties, U.S. Risks Losing Its Voice

Way to go Mr. Art of the Deal, Donny.

LONDON In the master plan advanced by President Trump, an unabashedly aggressive United States is supposed to reclaim its rightful perch as the center of the commercial universe, wielding its economic dominance to dictate the rules of global trade.

Major economies show no inclination to accept American designs on trade an attitude on display on Thursday as the European Union and Japan agreed to the broad outlines of a free trade deal before a summit meeting of world leaders. If completed, the deal would further the exchange of goods and services between their two markets while, in relative terms, diminishing opportunities for American companies.

These two trading powers, both bedrock American allies, are effectively proceeding with plans to bolster globalization just as the United States is turning to protectionism. Large areas of the global economy are now on divergent paths, creating more uncertainty for multinational companies.




In taking this approach, the United States risks having less of a voice in the global trade discussion as other economies take their own paths.

3. A million ways... first, it weakens NATO,

with the intent of that being Russian take over of the Baltics, Poland, Ukraine, Belarus...

Moldova ?, Romania?, Bulgaria?.....
Basically, the return of Russian hegemony...

Oil and natural gas sales...

Weakening US relationships with the world....
Cutting off US exports.....and trade in general....

It's how you destroy an empire, and ours is finished..

I always though China would be the one to bring us down....and they have been at it for some time...

But at this point.. they both will...
