All Der Trumper did was agree to not ESCALUATE his current Trade War with the EU at this time. He's still fixin' to really smack down China, and if you think $12Billion will save our bean and pork producers, you don't follow the ag news.

 

He's just been distracted trying to start a war with Iran - soon as he's gfot that going, he'll be back to punishing our allies and kissing up to Vlad the PupPetPOTUS Master.

Stock market jumps on US-EU trade optimism

You have a choice. You can think for yourself and apply logic to this issue or you can become part of Trump World where logic is ignored and you accept everything Comrade Trump says. For those who think for yourself, let's review the facts.

  • As JimC and friends always points out, the economy was booming. Unemployment is near record lows and business was thrivng for just about everyone.
  • The stock market was doing extremely well
  • There were no problems with our economy and/or our trading around the world.

Then Donald Trump, on his own, initiates a global trade war and the market started falling. Farmers, lobster fishermen, and auto manufacturers started suffering or were about to suffer. Why? Because of one person, the economic imbecile in the White House. Trump created a problem where no problem existed.

 

And they offer him praise for hinting at solving a problem that did NOT exist until Trump created it.

President Trump explained to the people of the world how the trade deficits work and their affect on ALL the countries involved, it appears to have had a positive effect.  The E.U. just proved that point in the meeting on Wednesday.

 

It is so refreshing to have a person in charge that understands the true meaning of free trade...

 

Good Job President Trump!  

 

Please stay focused and ignore the nay Sayers, They are the ones that created this mess.  You do in fact have your finger on the pulse of our economy, keep it up.

 

 


Here we go again another try to cover up what Dictator Trump has done. It looks like the leaders need support for Dictator Trump as he now goes to war with Turkey. One of our biggest air bases is in Turkey and they can close it if they want. Well in this case it is 2 Dictatorships fighting with each other. The President of Turkey just took full control of his country, and is now a full Dictator like Dictator Trump wants to be. The enablers are the worst group of people in the USA. Do not let them fool you.

Trump, EU agree to work on lowering tariffs, averting a potential trade war

  • President Donald Trump on Wednesday announced that he had secured concessions from Europe, averting a potential trade war.
  • The Dow Jones Industrial Average popped Wednesday afternoon, rising more than half a percent on the news.
  • The Europeans agreed to lower industrial tariffs and import more U.S. soybeans.

U.S. stocks rallied Wednesday, erasing earlier losses, after President Trump and European officials met in Washington for trade talks.

 

The Dow Jones Industrial Average jumped 172.16 points, or 0.68%, to 25,414.10. The S&P 500 gained 25.67 points to close at 2,846.07. The Nasdaq Composite was up 91.47 points at 7,932.24.

 

Trump welcomed Jean-Claude Juncker and Cecilia Malmstrom at the White House on Wednesday afternoon to discuss tariffs between the U.S. and European Union. In an unexpected announcement after the meeting, Trump announced that the U.S. and EU agreed to work toward zero tariffs and zero subsidies on non-auto industrial goods and avoid any new tariffs while talks are ongoing. Trump had threatened to slap tariffs on European car imports.

 

The EU also agreed to buy more U.S. soybeans, while the U.S. will work toward resolving tariffs recently imposed on European steel and aluminum.

 

“The catalyst to unleashing a higher multiple could be the removal of the trade war fears, but today is just the first step,” said Chris Zaccarelli, chief investment officer for Independent Advisor Alliance.

 

“Going forward, negotiations with Mexico and Canada will be very important, and the 800 pound gorilla in the room is China, which also serves as the Trump administration’s most difficult challenge.”

 

Earlier Wednesday, Trump said he “hopes to work out a fair and reciprocal trade deal between the U.S. and Europe." Junker told reporters as he sat down with Trump that Europe and the United States were allies and “needed to work together.”

 

Also ahead of the meeting, Larry Kudlow, a top economic adviser to President Trump, was upbeat that both sides could come to a decision that avoids a trade war.

 

“They have a positive attitude going into this. Our team has a positive attitude,” Kudlow said on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” Wednesday morning. He also called the meeting “absolutely crucial.”

 

Trump has threated up to a 25% tariff on European cars and parts and the EU said it would retaliate by slapping tariffs on $20 billion worth of U.S. goods.

 

Wednesday is a busy day for corporate earnings reports. Results have already been released by companies including Boeing, General Motors, Coca-Cola and UPS. Facebook will report its latest quarterly results after the closing bell.

Winning again...

 

 


No it is really surrendering again by Dictator Trump. Polls out today show Dictator Trump now under water in states that gave him his electoral win.He would loose the electoral college if the election was held today. There has been strong opposition from all sectors of our businesses against the Tariffs on auto as there are about 40% average foreign parts in every car made in the US so car prices would go way up, and there would be a lot of US job losses. Trump backs down and as the statement tells us nothing new will happen, but tariffs in place will stay for now. Dictator Trump will back down on them to as we are seeing the price increases are starting to hit, and businesses in the US are being hurt and some laying off people. In the end we will be back to where we were before with what I think will be some improvements that were being worked on before Dictator Trump messed it all up. Our enablers understand nothing about this subject but just post what they are told to be their leaders. The enablers are the most dangerous group of people in the US and all thinking people should oppose Dictator Trump and them. Do not bet on the soy beans purchase. If China stops buying from us and the price tanks further yes they buy for cheap price and no other place to buy as the other places are selling to China. 


https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2018/07/25/president_trump_makes_trade_announcement_with_ec_...


Here  you see why the enablers are the most dangerous group in the USA. They take an article and try and use it to support Dictator Trump sundering to the EU due to the fact he is starting to loose support from his enablers. The experts have defined the enablers for us, and there are various degrees of enablers. The lower end will be the last to go.

Now all Trump has to do is back down on the tariffs to China as he did with EU.  As Republcian lawmakers pressure him to do.  Now If you listen to FOX News, Trump made a great deal.  Like the one no one knows about in Helsinki.


Do you really have no concept of the meaning of "negotiations"?

We have to constantly remind ourselves that Trump Cult members were absent from school when LOGIC was taught. But let's throw our hands up in the air and give it a try anyway. JimC just demonstrated very flawed logic with the title of this thread. Here's an analogy for JimC. 

 

  • You're earning $50,000 per year so life is good for you and your family
  • Your boss is Donald Trump, who for no reason at all, suddenly cuts your salary to $25,000
  • After several months, you negotiate with Trump who agrees in principle (not in writing) to restore your original salary of $50,000

JimC would then praise Donald Trump for giving you a salary of $50,000, which is where you started before Trump unnecessarily caused the problem. Praise for someone who brings you back to the position where you started?
