G7+2 Cry Uncle – President Trump Unfazed and Undeterred, Tariffs Will Continue Until Equity Improves…

President Trump has taken the Godzilla Trump meme to levels beyond ordinary imaginings.  In advance of the G7 summit in Charlevoix, Canada Prime Minister Trudeau sounded the alarm and called in all like-minded allies to help fend off horrible Trump and his arsenal of tariffs.

L-R: European Council President Donald Tusk, British Prime Minister Theresa May, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, U.S. President Donald Trump, Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, French President Emmanuel Macron, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker

French President Emmanuel Macron responded to Trudeau’s plea and arrived two-days early to coordinate the strategic message.  Together they were looking for leverage in advance of Godzilla Trump’s arrival.  Germany’s Angela Merkel, and U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May even brought non-G7 members European Council President Donald Tusk, and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker as back-up.

Apparently the six-against-one plan was considered unfair to the six, so they added two more.  Unfortunately for Canada, France, Germany and the U.K., Japanese PM Shinzo Abe and Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte are not foolish enough to take on Godzilla.

As an entirely predictable outcome, President Trump won again.  It’s just so darned funny to watch this play out.  The era of the titan is back, and deliciously the titan is an American President, Donald J Trump.  He’s one guy, and he has them all surrounded; and he’s laughing the entire time.  He’s impenetrable, sharp, funny as heck and monolithic in stature making all of his opposition look decidedly less-than.

Emmanuel Macron and Justin Trudeau try to use pontificating snark; it matters not.  They seem like foolish gnats.  Merkel, May, Tusk and Junker are standing there with their jaws agape.  Shinzo Abe and Giuseppe Conte are trying not to laugh – but gosh, you can tell they are loving it.  Titans just don’t get embarrassed, they dominate.

British Prime Minister Theresa May gave it the old college try on Friday warning both Trump and the EU of the dangers of entering a tit-for-tat trade war over tariffs, and urging both sides to instead focus on China’s excess steel production.  Trump responded: “We’re going to deal with the unfair trade practices. If you look at what Canada, and Mexico, the European Union – all of them – have been doing to us for many, many decades. We have to change it. And they understand it’s going to happen,” Trump said.

Have a crumpet.

(Reuters) U.S. trading partners are furious over Trump’s decision last week to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada, the European Union and Mexico as part of his “America First” agenda. Some have retaliated.

Trump just doesn’t care.

Friday’s trade session, where G7 allies planned to confront the U.S. president over trade tariffs, had “some emotions” but was civilized and diplomatic, said the official who followed the talks.

“The other leaders presented their numbers and Trump presented his. As expected he did not budge.

[…]  Expectations for a breakthrough at the summit, however, are low, with U.S. allies focused on avoiding rupturing the G7, which in its 42-year history has tended to seek consensus on major issues.

“It’s highly unlikely there will be a final communique,” a G7 official said on condition of anonymity.

[…] He plans to leave the summit four hours earlier than originally planned to fly to Singapore to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, the White House said.  (link)

    There is no comparison in modern day POTUSs with Trump he really trumps them all when one sees the hand he has been dealt
    I think even Reagan made some serious blunders likes of letting Chinese students/spies to come to US by plane loads & taking Bush on the ticket! He couldn’t figure the deep state! He was great in resurrecting the military against USSR but ignored the yellow peril!

      Hind sight for the time involved, ignores what was really happening at that time. Those of us who remember hiding under desks as drills in case of a nuclear bomb attack might disagree that China was important at all during that time. Reagan was confronting with what was important at the time and he handled what needed to be done unflinchingly and successfully. I see no reason to denigrate the decisions of one to build up the other. Each are/were a man for their time and so far are the only two in modern times with any resemblance to the founders intelligence, courage, foresight, and patriotism.

    Trump walking past the “we host the best parties” fancy pants sign & seeing Justin in his fancy pants suit makes me wonder if it reminds him of another person and their pant suits… and their pile of cash stashed out of sight for their elitist bosom-less buddies.
    “Nice sign… yet my people suffer at your song and dance playground games.”

    Trump never backs down to pant suits and celebrity extravaganzas.

    42 years of screwing US. The ‘consensus’ was ALWAYS how many different ways can we SCREW America.

    It would be a real tragedy if the G7 was ‘ruptured’.

      ______________

      Recall Clint Eastwood in the first Dirty Harry, the bank robber scene, where the robber is laying in the street with his shotgun laying on the ground, but in arm’s reach. Harry casually walks up to him and puts his gun in the robber’s face.

      This is from memory:

      “I know what you’re thinkin’, did he fire six shots or only five? In all the excitement I kinda lost track myself. But being that this is a .44 Magnum — the most powerful handgun in the world — and would blow your head clean off, you gotta ask yourself one question… do I feel lucky?

      Well do ya, punk?”

    The thing that stands out for me in that group portrait is that Pres. Donald Trump has more children and grand children that all the rest of the political leaders in that photo put together.

    Pres. Trump has skin in the game for America’s future.

    The same cannot be said of the rest of the people in that G7 Photo.

    We are so, so fortunate to have President Trump leading this nation. I don’t take a second for granted I want to soak up every second. Our career politicians have padded their pockets they never cared about those that paid their salaries let alone this nation. I would love to know where politicians thought their families were going to live and thrive. I really wonder if Hillary would have been elected, those in office would have had forever jobs.

    The day Trump become President was one of the greatest and most enjoyable days ever as I watched the anti-American media and brain washed liberals lose it and cry like a bunch of spoiled children. Thus, the following 500+ days have been a roller coaster ride of enjoyment as Trump’s policies come to be, while making America stronger every minute. It is about time someone put America and American interests first. This is why we are free, and have the privilege to vote. I hope Trump makes every country accountable for their own actions in relation to how they threat America. Fair is Fair, and true friends don’t take advantage of friends. Trump, for the next 8 years! PS, I am an hispanic male who loves my country – the United States of America.
