President Trump Meets With President Of EU Commission Jean Claude Juncker…

EU President Jean Claude Juncker arrives sober at the White House to discuss the ongoing negotiations between the EU position(s) on multiple issues and U.S. interests and concerns as outlined by President Trump.

There are a few primary issues: An ongoing trade reset, and the pending U.S. sanctions against Iran.  Both issues hold significant financial and economic ramifications for the European Union.  Additionally, the construct of Brexit (the U.K. exit from the EU) will determine how the structure of any bilateral trade deal will be made with Britain.  All three issues are enmeshed as President Trump leverages U.S. economic power and access to the U.S. market.

    In need of a history/geopolitical lesson: Can someone explain to me how Iran is such a major player? Besides nuclear aspirations, what else do they have? Or in this instance, how does Iran affect the financial and economic ramifications for the European Union?

    Thanks in advance.

        Much of the Syria trainwreck is over competing energy pipelines from Iran & other countries to the EU.

          I guess the Silk Road hasn’t changed in millenia. That entire area has been the center of much trade and other exchange for years. North, south, east and by boat from the Med.

          PotP, we have known for years that Iran and other countries want to bring down Syria because they have to pass thru Syria to deliver oil. Iran has to stop and think but first get rid of the supposed cult leaders and elect who they want, and frankly confiscate those many millions the oligarchs has stolen from their citizens so the money can actually be put to good use and the oligarchs leaving penniless! or hanged for treason.

      Apparently some European entities were making money doing business in Iran. With sanctions ramping up businesses are withdrawing from Iran which hurts Iranian elites and is obviously a loss to those European businesses. There was also petroleum imports from Iran now being reduced forcing Europeans to look elsewhere for energy supplies, though there’s no shortage on the markets. There are many suspicions that European officials had been paid off to support the Iran deal and were not eager to renege on their contracts. Now it looks like they’ll be able to blame the US for failure to deliver but don’t expect them to say “thanks” to PT.

          We’re not thrilled, in the least. Especially this coming winter.

          You have to understand, it’s not the GERMAN PEOPLE who pull these stunts; it’s the Politician Puppets (Merde-kel, Schröder, Trittin (!), and others) who are doing the damage. We “proles” are just stuck with paying for it. And Greece, and Italy, and, (no) thanks to Druggie, erm, Draghi, our collective retirements and savings have been shaved down to nothing. And Lagarde, from France, is no better…

            I understand, we had Soros/obama for eight years prior to that we were shoved along with the Clintons, Bushes and the corrupt GOPE. Completely wiped out the middle class while we were the worlds piggy bank. It will only change when the people wise up but they must have a real person to lead. I pray for the people of this world that are suffering under their greedy leaders greed. In the end today the USA is truly blessed and if possible with help the people of the world just may gain a very loud unexpected voice. God bless you and yours.

            Good analysis Cuppa.
            One thing which may not be clear to our U.S. cousins is the exorbitant price of energy in Europe and the lack of supplies.
            This is mainly due to the idiotic belief in the global warming religious taxes
            If there are no tariffs (on either side) European industry would just cease to exist if trying to compete with US energy prices.
            Therefore I cannot see our stupid turkeys over here voting for Christmas.

      The EU wants to stay in the “Iran Nuclear Deal” for their trade deals. P45 has put sanctions on Iran and wants cooperation with the EU on those sanctions and I think he said any country doing trade deals with Iran cannot have deals with USA.

    As he’s been saying, PT wants “reciprocal” trade agreements, preferably no tariffs or barriers (or gov’t subsidies), “a level playing field” for trade. Juncker says “we have to work together”. All the right words, we’ll see what, if anything comes of it.

    At the end the “reporters” are shrieking questions (I think that’s what it was). Juncker looks amused and astonished, PT is PO’d at the rude display of American “journalists” on the job. For us, it’s just the usual story.

    For the first time in decades, we have a President who actually represents the USA and the people of the USA. President Trump has exposed the frauds and traitors in Congress and the Senate. We the People need to make sure they are replaced.

    In the meantime, President Trump is almost single handedly Making America Great Again. President Trump is one AMAZING man who is not only going to fix the USA but make the world a better place. JMHO

    Fox News reporting that Trump has secured concessions from EU on trade war.

    Those screaming harpies “Cohen, Cohen” are a total embarrassment. Those 30 something women in press briefings or in front of international people show their shallowness and lack of focus on important world matters, on a daily basis. It is an affront to our President and to this country on the world stage.

    Potus needs a TOUGH ENFORCER to shut up and move these people out rapidly or quit having press sprays or have them with strict limitations as to numbers and who can attend. ie. when POTUS says Thank you, thank you—–you shut up and leave—else you will be banned next time. PERIOD !!

    Apparently Bill Shine, POTUS’ new communication director pulled that screaming CNN female reporter aside and banned her from attending the Rose Garden announcement later. CNN vigorously complained about a legitimate reporter being banned for trying to cover the “news of the Day”

    Fox announced this on their nightly news and of course stood up for CNN.

    Wonderful things happen when a VSG “rectifies names”, states unvarnished truths willfully obscured for thirty years, then makes it extremely worthwhile even for crony socialists in Brussels, Old Mexico, possibly even China and her satellites, to (finally) bag their Central Banking BS to benefit long-suffering constituents.

    A century ago, Coolidge Prosperity defined an era prior to the Crash of ’29. Come 2024 et seq., Trump Prosperity will have gone deeper, wider, and proved longer-lasting than Silent Cal and his hands-off Administration could envision.
