    Germany will offer to scrap the EU's 10% tax on US autos: Report

    Maybe Trump's pressure on the tariff issue will ultimately cause reductions and re-alignment of tariffs overall.

    Those of us who are still hoping for the best even though we didn't vote for him think this is a very positive development.

    Those who are hoping for the worst, well, you can just keep hoping for the worst.

    Yes, as I said, keep hoping for the worst.

    And be sure to focus on every negative possible.

    I know how politics goes. On both ends.

    Yeah, the appetite for big trucks and SUV’s outside the U.S. is legendary. What a difference this will make.

    The cost of a U.S. made car is going to go up a lot more than the 10% saved from removing this tariff if Trump’s policies go through
