Donald Trump intensifies EU trade war rhetoric in attack on tariffs and Angela Merkel

US President Donald Trump has branded Angela Merkel “ridiculous” in his latest attack on European leaders.

During an explosive interview with Bloomberg, the US leader also rejected the EU’s proposal to scrap auto tariffs as “simply not good enough”.

President Trump intensified his rhetoric against Brussels, claiming that the EU’s trade policies were “as bad as China”.

He agreed in July to hold back on his proposed 25 percent tariffs on cars to allow the EU to develop ways to cut down trade barriers.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
