Trump threatens Europe with fresh tariffs in Davos, deepening a rift with long-time U.S. allies

Source: Washington Post

DAVOS, Switzerland ó President Trump renewed his threat to put hefty tariffs on European cars Tuesday at the World Economic Forum, promising hardball tactics if trade negotiations did not go his way.

Just days after Trump scored big wins with China, Mexico, and Canada, the move highlights how Trump is quickly pivoting to make Europe the next front in his protectionist trade war.

As part of this push on Tuesday, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin warned that Italy and Britain could face U.S. tariffs if they pursue taxes on large digital companies like Facebook and Alphabetís Google. French President Emmanuel Macron agreed in recent days to delay a similar tax in order to avoid Trumpís tariffs.

The threatened tariffs symbolize the growing rift between the United States and Europe, which was on clear display as leaders from the two continents appeared to be talking from different scripts. Trump insisted on discussing a new trade deal, while European leaders kept emphasizing action on climate change and cooperation.

1. I'm confused..........

"Just days after Trump scored big wins with China, Mexico, and Canada,"................

I thought he'd agreed to a weakened deal to say he could "claim victory."

Now someone's calling them "big wins?"

Which is it?

3. Gotta keep that horse race a goin'

Truth is, Trumpís China deal is a net loss after paying off our farmers and the USMCA isnít much better. If the USMCA is a good deal, it got that way after Nancy Pelosi got her hands on it.

The media needs a horse race to sell the advertising space that coverage creates.

5. Of course he is

Using anything he can as a weapon against our allies , and watch his escalation of using this , and re-directing Congressional approved funds as another weapon he'll be using , against everyone. He's working for putin , not us . All trump's properties should now get the same treatment with increased taxes, and fees for all his properties to use to drive him out. All information on him be collected and exposed on him and all his crimes . Get dirt on the republicans now to expose them with it, or he will escalate his demands to use to hurt them more by abusing his power to use committing more crimes . f they don't put their foot down now he will get a lot worse very quickly .

7. Setting us up for the grand finale of his election platform flim-flam.

tRump administration creates crises then puts on a big show like he's solving non-existent problems. I see that NK is already telling him to go piss up a small rope. With China's trade deal, they will be the winner big-time in the long run.

Prepare for a shitstorm of these fake "wins" before November......
