    He needs to slap them with sanctions to keep them out of our business. And remove the U.S. from the U.N. They act as if they controls the U.S.


    DAVOS, Switzerland — 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 Alphabet’s Google. French President Emmanuel Macron agreed in recent days to delay a similar tax in order to avoid Trump’s 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.

    There is a bright side to Trump pissing off the rest of the world. The next time we want to start a war and want their help they will tell us to piss off.

    Wait, it is Europe that was pursuing and threatening taxes against U.S tech companies. This, on top of the many tariffs that U.S businesses across the board pay.

    Yes, you play hardball against global socialists. The free party is over for the socialist governments abuses of America, or, you will become like Canada, a nothing gimmick economy.

    Tariffs only hurt the people of the USA. The rich and elite won't be affected, only the middle income. You know tramp is set on the rich not paying for nothing, he will have all the laborers paying for everything, he is anti social security, anti the ACA, anti every social program.

    Has you been grocery shopping in the USA since he has become Potus, NO. I spend an extra 50-75 a week.

    The US will be a world for the rich, and the middle and poorer will just get poorer.

    Donald Trump said something? And now some people try to find a grain of truth in his words? The truth is there is no grain of truth in his words! This man is a totally incompetent idiot, who has not any idea about anything. He's a shame for the USA - that's all.

    Why worry about it, since WW II Europe has done little to help us, even when it comes to threatening war with specific countries in Europe....OR a NATO ally!....Let Europe rot!
