COUNTERING TRUMP’S THREATS

European leaders are sick and tired of Trump, who has been an exasperating, unpredictable and unfriendly negotiating partner to them, fitting no definition of an ally. But the Europeans are reluctant to abandon the existing trade rules and allow them to be replaced by an unpredictable might-based system. This isn’t merely about commercial interests; its about principles and rules.

TRUMP'S TRADE TEAM MYOPIA

President Trump’s recent  imposition of tariffs on the imports of steel and aluminum is but the latest evidence of a wrongheaded and dangerous U.S. trade policy. Wrongheaded because it is based on incorrect economic analysis. Dangerous because it will inevitably result in a trade war in which there are no winners.

THE CSU RATIONALE

Germany’s CSU fears that without a tougher migration policy, the far-right anti-immigrant Alternative for Germany (AfD) party will become stronger in Bavaria at its expense. By taking a hard line on migration, CSU hopes to position itself as a strong alternative to the AfD in Bavarian elections.

WRONG APPROACH MR. PRESIDENT !!!

If EU Tariffs and Barriers are not soon broken down and removed, Trump threatens to place a 20% Tariff on all of cars coming into the U.S. The U.S. currently charges a 2.5 % tariff for car imports vs. a 10% duty imposed by Europe. But the U.S. imposes a 25% tariff on imports of light trucks vs. Europe’s 10% for those vehicles.

The U.S. imported nearly 1.3 million vehicles last year from the European Union, representing about 7% of all light vehicles sold in the U.S. in 2017.
