Trump proposed to Macron

Turns out Trump proposed to Macron to leave the European Union in exchange for a special bilateral trade deal. Divide et empera (divide and conquer), if that fails, bitch on Twitter. Not sure how to write that in latin though.

Hmmmm...leave an economic union in which France enjoys special status, or take the word of a con man who has cheated everyone who has entered into a business arrangement with him.

Tough choice...

Yeah, but still, Trump's Russian creditors and Putin himself have ordered Trump to do everything possible to weaken the West.

And, he's been doing a fine job.

Trump's sees the world in black and white. Countries are either strong OR weak.

Leaders are either strong or weak. Dictators are STRONG. Dick--tators are good.

Now Russia files a suit against U.S. tariffs with the WTO. Putin knows that the childish con man will pull out of the WTO if he loses. Putin is baiting his orange tool to weaken the western alliance. Putin plays the con man like a cheap violin.

That should make for an awkward meeting with Putin.

The way I read it, the suit was filed in the US Court of International Trade, not the WTO.
