"Trump Is Poised To Bombard The E.U. With More Tariffs

If you like French and Italian wines, olives, olive oil, Scotch, Irish Whiskey, or European-made cheese, you’d better stock up now, because they may soon get a lot more expensive.

President Trump is on the verge of punishing importers of these and myriad other European imports, and by extension American consumers of them, with tariffs of 100%."


Suck these New World balls Euro scum!

"This is predicated on an expected decision by a World Trade Organization arbitration panel that the United States is entitled to hit the European Union with punitive tariffs, because the E.U. has for years illegally subsidized Airbus, the European commercial aircraft manufacturer. The U.S. argues that the subsidies have given Airbus an unfair advantage over the Boeing Co. (NYSE:BA).

A WTO ruling in America’s favor would allow the Trump administration to impose tariffs on not just aircraft and associated parts and equipment, but on all manner of E.U. products. The administration published a list of them on April 12 and another on July 5. The listed products represent about $7 billion in annual imports."

Eat it addy!

Yes, we know Rugian is a drunk and a bad one at that given he thinks American liquor is somehow superior to overseas liquor.

The best shit is from Europe and Japan.

The Trump economy makes us all rich, we can afford to pay more for olives. We win in any case!

Nobody has accused rugian of turning down a dick in the ass, so his support here makes sense.
