Trump Threw A Tantrum And Ticked Off Germany By Calling The Germans Very Very Evil

US President Donald Trump complained bitterly about the German trade surplus on his meeting with the EU top in Brussels. “The Germans are evil, very evil,” said Trump. This was learned by the SPIEGEL from participants in the meeting. Trump said, “Look at the millions of cars they sell in the US, and we’ll stop that.”

. . .

The world’s only superpower is being run by a man who has to have his television time monitored because cable news gets him too riled up and makes him want to tweet.

Trump’s tantrum is the lead in all of the German newspapers because it sounds like this president is aching for a trade war that will destroy the US economy. Donald Trump wants to slap a tariff on the imports of American allies.

If Donald Trump wants German cars no longer sold in the United States, he better be prepared for American products not be sold in Germany.

The Germans aren’t evil for making cars that Americans want to buy. The only evil in this conversation resides between Trump’s ears because the president is apparently trying to destroy free market capitalism.

Chaffetz Miffed By FBIs Deferral Of His Request For Comeys Trump Memos

House Oversight Committee Chair Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) responded to the FBI’s deferral of his request for documents that fired FBI Director James Comey reportedly wrote about his interactions with President Donald Trump by sending a second request.

“The focus of the Committee’s investigation is the independence of the FBI,” Chaffetz wrote Thursday in a letter to acting FBI Director Andrew G. McCabe. “The records being withheld are central to those questions.”

He said the House Oversight Committee “in no way wants to impede or interfere with the Special Counsel’s ability to conduct his investigation” but asked the FBI to “produce these documents to the Committee immediately.”

In its response to Chaffetz’s original request, the FBI cited the appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel to oversee the investigation into whether members of Trump’s campaign colluded with Russian officials.

“In light of this development and other considerations, we are undertaking appropriate consultation to ensure all relevant interests implicated by your report are properly evaluated,” Gregory A. Brower, the assistant director for the bureau’s Office of Congressional Affairs, wrote in a letter to Chaffetz.
