It’s Trump vs. the world at G-20 talks
Even PDT’s most hardened critics have to give the man credit for one thing, having a set big goolunies.
FRANKFURT, Germany — Competing visions of world trade are set to collide at the Group of 20 summit of world leaders in Hamburg, Germany, this week.
U.S. President Donald Trump’s “America First” approach faces off against the European Union and its support for broad free trade agreements, with the Europeans touting a new, far-reaching pact it is completing with Japan.
For decades the USA has been the doormat for every country in the world and our rich Uncle $am who has been figuratively giving the store away. We now have a person sitting in the Big Chair that is not the run of the mill shop keeper; he is minding the store.
PDT has presented cold hard facts and figures as to how the USA has been getting hosed from all of our supposed trading partners around the world, but these countries leaders are all pissed off at him because he is looking out for the interest of his country. Does this make sense?
It is long overdue that we have someone in the Casa Bianca looking out for the interest of the American people. Not only has the USA been getting buckets monetarily for years, the one-sided trade agreements have cost our country millions of jobs.
A trade agreement (also known as trade pact) is a wide ranging tax, tariff and trade treaty that often includes investment guarantees. The most common trade agreements are of the preferential and free trade types are concluded in order to reduce (or eliminate) tariffs, quotas and other trade restrictions on items traded between the signatories.
1. the act of agreeing or of coming to a mutual arrangement.
2. the state of being in accord.
3. an arrangement that is accepted by all parties to a transaction.
I see nothing in these definitions that say; one sided.
In both of those definitions; all the parties are not playing by the rules. FINALLY the USA is cutting off the handouts and our one-sided trading partners don’t like it.
The agreements were drafted, put on paper and signed y all parties concerned BUT, always the BIG BUT; after the fact, most of the signatories did the limbo rock and slid under the agreement pole.
PDT is going to go down in history as The Man that broke the barriers, changed business as usual and is trying to make the necessary changes to insure his country is getting a fair shake. Who can find fault with that except the people on the receiving end?
It is just too bad that the Boulder Rollers in the USA can not see the forest on account of being ignorant and support PDT in his efforts.
Does the man have some hang-ups? He certainly does BUT his intentions are good and his love for the USA stands above all else. We all have to look at the big picture.
