Merkel: Nine! You vill ruin everything ve vorked zo hard for!

Trump: Yeah, that's the idea.



The beauty of a simply stated principle is people can grasp the idea on one hearing.

Seems that for 2 days at the G7 summit Trump was calling for the end of all tariffs.

Quote:
Trump’s proposal was shocking, coming just days after he applied tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from the European Union, Canada, and Mexico. The other six members of the G-7 came to Charlevoix prepared to blast the U.S. for protectionism — and President Trump simply called their bluff.

Not one of the other leading economies embraced Trump’s proposal. As President Trump has often complained, they have their own tariffs and subsidies to protect powerful domestic constituencies and special interests, despite professing their commitment to free trade in high-minded terms.

Trump may not have been serious. But the brilliance of his proposal is that he can always say he made it, and it was rejected. He can use that to justify protectionist measures he takes later.

Businessmen learn how to negotiate. Even I know how I negotiate ... such as the most important rule ..

"You can't negotiate, if you can't walk away."

And, so if you bluff and get called on it and do not follow thru, then your credibility with that party is trashed. And it is far easier to loose credibility than to gain it back. So, I think he was serious. At least within the G7... free trade, 100% free trade, within the g7.

I'm sure he was serious and would have happily pledged to eliminate all tariffs and trade barriers between the other 6 members.

But he also isn't a fool and knew they would never agree to it. Getting them to admit that... was masterful and he can now not only poke them in one eye on their protectionism but also in the other for their tremendous hypocrisy to "free trade."

Quote:
... Trump blew apart a G7 summit in Canada over the weekend, blasting Trudeau as “very dishonest and weak” and raising the prospect of tariffs against auto imports, a move that would imperil the Canadian economy.

His unexpected and extraordinary attack flummoxed Canadian officials, who have waged an 18-month campaign designed to cultivate allies among U.S. policymakers and business leaders in defense of Canada’s interests.

People close to the situation said they were disappointed the outreach had not been as productive as they hoped. The dispute weighed on the Canadian dollar on Monday.

Ottawa has promised to retaliate against Washington’s imposition of tariffs on metals imports from Canada, the largest supplier of steel to the United States. But Canada would face long odds winning a trade war against a country 10 times its size economically and which takes the majority of its exports.

“There is a limit to what we can achieve in Canada. The only people capable of persuading Trump to stop this are in the United States, but they have not hit anything like top gear,” said one person close to the matter.

In a sign of how limited their options are, Canadian officials said they planned to press harder with their U.S. lobbying campaign, focused on potentially sympathetic lawmakers outside the White House, while relying on support from allied nations and hoping Trump does not carry out all his threats.

Officials have stressed the two countries’ extensive trading relationship and pointed out that Canada is the top export destination for 35 U.S. states and that 9 million jobs in the United States depend on trade with its northern neighbor.


On Sunday, White House economic adviser Peter Navarro, who said there was “a special place in hell” for Trudeau, criticized the government’s outreach campaign, saying the Canadians should “spend more time at the bargaining table and less time lobbying Capitol Hill and our press and state governments.” ...

Don't wanna join the Army, Navy, Airforce, Marines or Coast Guard !!?? Now there is another choice !!!


Quote:
President Donald Trump has directed the Pentagon to create a "space force" as a new, sixth military branch to oversee missions and operations in the space domain.

"We must have American dominance in space," Trump said during a speech at the National Space Council meeting, held at the White House on Monday. "I'm hereby directing the Department of Defense to immediately begin the process to establish a space force as the sixth branch of the armed forces."
