Trump: EU Is Possibly As Bad As China On Trade, Just Smaller
Trading with the EU is almost as bad and unfair as trading with China, President Trump told Fox News, noting how Washington pays a fortune “protecting” its little European partners, and they reciprocate by doing “terrible” things.
“The European Union is possibly as bad as China, just smaller,” Donald Trump said in an interview with Fox News. “It’s terrible what they do to us.”
“I can say it better in a different way. They made, last year, $151bn in trade surplus. We had a deficit with the EU. On top of that, we spend a fortune on NATO to protect them,” he added.
