A Refill on Your Morning Stupid?

More Exciting News From Trump HQ!

I totally missed this yesterday, but thanks to Kevin Drum at Mother Jones:

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.”

….According to a report from the “Süddeutsche Zeitung”, the EU side was terrified about the lack of awareness of the Americans about trade policy. Apparently, it was unclear to the guests that the EU countries concluded trade agreements only jointly.

And then Drum gives us the bull’s ear, as it were:

…forgodssake, when are the Trumpies going to learn that they can’t do a trade deal with only Germany? It’s the whole EU or nothing. Last month we heard reports that Angela Merkel had to tell Trump a dozen times before he finally got it, but it sounds like he’s already forgotten.

Grifters gotta grift, Kevin. Trump is feeding his base on those campaign promises that he cannot fulfill, by making it look like he’s trying.

    This can’t go well for him- a lot of his plutocrat base will want to buy BMWs or Porsches.

    Maybe he’ll make an exception for cars over 80K.

    Idiot doesn’t realize most German cars sold in the US are made in the US, as opposed to his ties and Ivanka’s shoes.

  5. if somebody buys a german nameplate car that may well have been assembled in large part in the u.s. then they did so because they wanted to – as for spouse and self, we have chevrolets although i think we are going to get rid of the older one and we have not yet narrowed down what the replacement will be – chances are it will not be either of the german brands mentioned earlier in this comments threat by BBBB

    Why does he say Germans are evil? Could it be their laws against Nazis?
