After insulting the French over the weekend, and then again today upon return, Trump said:
“On Trade, France makes excellent wine, but so does the U.S. The problem is that France makes it very hard for the U.S. to sell its wines into France, and charges big Tariffs, whereas the U.S. makes it easy for French wines, and charges very small Tariffs. Not fair, must change!”
Great.... we'll pay more for French wines. Cheese next?
According the several online resources, EU tariffs on US wine are $0.11 - $0.29 per bottle. US tariffs are $0.05 - $0.14.
Must be fake news. I'm sure Trump was well-briefed and in command of the facts.....
