Trump tells the G-7 to drop the trade barriers

NY Times:

Trump Warns Nations Over Tariffs at G-7 Gathering

  • President Trump issued a warning on trade at the G-7 meeting, saying he was willing to lift all tariffs if other nations did, or he would end trading.
  • “It’s going to stop. Or we’ll stop trading with them,” Mr. Trump said. “We’re like the piggy bank that everybody’s robbing and that ends.”
This is what the Trump tariffs were about all along and the targets walked into his trap by blasting the proposed US tariffs.  Now they are having to flip and defend their own.  He is making the case for free trade and the others have been exposed as protectionists.
