Trump Threatens Our Allies

This was predictable.

The school bully strikes again.

Leaving the G7 summit on Saturday, President Trump said that the U.S. might end all trade with America’s closest allies if the those countries don’t submit to his demands over reduced trade barriers. Trump also confirmed that he had told the leaders of Britain, France, Germany, Japan, Canada, and Italy that there should be no tariffs between them and the U.S. of any kind. Whether Trump’s characteristically hyperbolic threat, or overarching proposal, will be taken seriously is another matter.

Referring to what he called “ridiculous and unfair” tariffs on U.S. imports, Trump said, “It’s going to stop — or we’ll stop trading with them. And that’s a very profitable answer, if we have to do it.”

Trump Threatens to End All Trade With Allies

Meanwhile, Trump misses the Macron meeting, comes in late--disrupting gender equality meeting--disrespectful as always.

His arrival was impossible to miss as security personnel had to open a path for Trump through a mob of journalists, many of whom were holding large cameras.
Obviously we are moving into a possible ISOLATION globally....thanks to Trump.

Looks to me like Trump (i.e. the United States) is no longer the center of the universe--which means the U.S. has just been demoted. Will Angela Merkel be taking the top spot?

Be sure and check out the tweets on Dan Scavino, Jr.'s twitter acct.

They have trade barriers and they're supposedly our allies? I don't think so; try again.

I think Xi inherited it a while ago without having to do anything. Merkle is probably inheriting the mantle for the western world.

Take a look at softwood lumber. Try sugar. Not to mention the whole herd of "price supports". Nice phraseology for subsidies.

Don't play all innocent on us.

Trump is alienating us from our allies and embracing world dictators.
He's a disgrace. He's openly despised.

Trump's rich GOP buddies are already PISSED at him....probably because they realize he has no idea what he's doing.

If it wasn't so seriously PATHETIC it would be funny.....all these guys supporting him in public and privately expressing their disgust.

The U.S. isn’t the big consumer market on the block anymore. At just 320 million people. Asia’s multi-billion population and much faster growing middle class is now supplanting the U.S. How is it that right wingers can be so uninformed on so many issues ? Oh, I forgot, they are hoping against hope that they will wake up one morning and it will be the 1950’s again....LOL

Yep, it was a disaster.

The days of the Marshall Plan are sleep with the fishes. The US is no longer rebuilding the war shattered remnants of Germany, France, Great Britain, or any of them. If there is a problem for Trump, it's that the Marshall Plan worked too well, the countries we rebuilt have strong, thriving economies of their own. And they aren't about to take shit from some snotty little political nouveau riche like Trump.
