While Trump is busy being an Asshole, the EU and Japan agrees on the deal of the century, to make our countries prosper.

Do you think Trump is jealous now?


EU governments approve free trade deal with Japan

European member states have given the go-ahead for a free trade deal with Japan, the world's third-largest economy. Brussels said the agreement was sending "a very powerful signal against protectionism."

EU governments on Friday threw their weight behind a free trade deal with Japan, paving the way for the agreement to be signed next week at a bilateral summit in Brussels.

The deal will be the biggest free trade accord ever signed by the European Union. The agreement will unite around 600 million people, representing about one-third of global trade.
EU officials said the accord would lead to the removal of all but a handful of tariffs between the two sides and aimed to boost economic growth and job creation.

Responding to earlier criticism from consumer protection groups, Brussels insisted the deal would not result in the deregulation and privatization of public services such as water management and waste water treatment.
Bucking the trend?

The deal, which comes at a time when US President Donald Trump is spearheading an "America first" agenda, "sends a very powerful signal against protectionism and for the rules-based international order," an EU official told the DPA news agency on condition of anonymity.

The US had imposed higher tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. Washington is now mulling a similar move for the automotive sector, with the EU and Japan to suffer considerably from higher duties on cars.

EU member states also approved the signature of a strategic partnership agreement with Japan to boost cooperation in a range of areas including security, defense against cybercrime, energy and climate change mitigation.

Looks like the EU is going to trade more with Japan instead of the US now. We will sell our cars to Japan and buy their products instead.

Who is USA gonna trade with now when they lose the European, Japanese and Chinese market? With Saudi Barbaria?

Sounds like Trump needs to call up our new friend in Pyongyang and tell him to remind Japan why they need us.

Japan needs protection from China, not North Korea. They could beat the shit out of North Korea and put them all in labor camps and whorehouses.

If Trump influences them to become a responsible country I will be the first to correct myself.

Has anyone noticed that the EU or Japan haven't made any trade deals with 3rd world countries?

What I don't understand is why don't everyone we trade with man up and admit that they are getting the better of the trade deals with America and adjust their rates accordingly.

As I said before, we have 50 States where products move freely through them without any tariffs. No reason the world cannot do the same.
