During a press conference in our northern neighbor’s (Canada) house at the G7 Summit, Donald Trump told folks that his relationship with all of the U.S. of A’s BFFs is as cool as a spring’s day.
“The relationship is a 10. We have a great relationship Angela and Emmanuel and Justin. I would say the relationship is a 10 and I don’t blame them.” That’s right folks! Donald John believes everything is copasetic between him, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron, and our northern neighbor’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Let Donald John tell it, Merkel knows he didn’t mean any harm when he refused to shake her hand after he first met her.
And he was just playing when he said he wants to make sure he doesn’t see another Mercedes-Benz on the streets of New York.
Donald John isn’t holding a grudge against Macron either because he believes Macron was just bored when he tweeted that the U.S. of A may be not be invited to the dinner conversation about trade if Donald John doesn’t water down all of his saltiness and his need to tariffize the other G6 countries.
And Trudeau wasn’t speaking the truth though when he said that “it is insulting” that Donald John believes the steel and aluminum tariffs on Canadian goods coming into the U.S. are needed because Canada is a national security threat. As far as Donald John is concern, all of that stuff was just talk.
Nobody really meant any harm by it. They were just saying what they had to say.
In fact, that’s why ol’ Donald John there said, "I don’t blame them,” for the U.S. coming up short in the trade game. Donald John blames the 44
presidents before him, beginning with President George Washington, for the trade shituation the U.S. has.
Here’s what Donald John said:
I blame, as I said, I blame our past leaders for allowing this to
happen. There was no reason this should happen. There’s no
reason we should have big trade deficits with virtually every
country in the world. I’m going long beyond G7. There’s no
reason for this. It’s the fault of the people that preceded me.
Yup, Donald John is simply saying that all 44 presidents, beginning with
George Washington in 1789 all the way up to Barack Obama in 2016, caused this 229-years fix he has to try and fix.
Y’all have to keep in mind now, we’ve been trading with Britain and France ever since our country came to be.
I’m not saying that Donald John is right about us having nothing but bad deals. That is unless you were an African and came on one of those slave ships or a poor white European who was forced into indentured servitude labor. Or worse yet, you were a poor white European who found yourself in slavery as well. Trade suck for all of those folks back then.
Just like today, those with the money were the ones who benefitted the most from international trade.
Back then, everybody else got the bad end of the deal because they tended to be the human commodity that was traded.
Those slave auction blocks were not fun. It was way worse than what y’all have seen in Django Unchained.
As a matter of fact, it was a trade dispute the U.S. got itself in the middle of between Britain and France
that eventually led to the War of 1812.
The trade dispute wasn’t over slavery. It was about some other
stuff. Anyways, the British
burn down the White House, not over trade, but after the U.S. tried to invade Canada and take that territory away from the British.
Stephen Miller, I think, said something to Donald John about the War of 1812. The conversation most likely went like this:
“Yeah, they burned down the White House. James Madison was in
it, but he escaped. You know, the president who has a city,
Madison, Wisconsin, named after him?”
“I won Wisconsin!”
“Yeah, I know. The Canadians were helping the British.”
“Yeah, I know.”
Donald John then got on the phone with Justin Trudeau and asked him about the White House burning down. Jim Acosta and Paula Newton
of Donald Trump’s “favorite news network”, CNN, said somebody told them Donald John bust out with this question to Justin Trudeau, “Didn’t you guys burn down the White House?”
Welp, that there plus Donald John using the U.S. Department of Commerce rule
, sec. 232 Investigations: The Effects of Imports on National Security, in order to argue that the steel and aluminum tariffs are justified because Canada, the European Union (EU), and Mexico are like China in that they are “getting away with murder” on trade and therefor are a threat to our national security didn’t sit too well with Trudeau, though. Trudeau
got so mad about that he tweeted out that tariffs on U.S. goods “will take effect on July 1.”
And then there’s this picture here, from Twitter, of Angela Merkle looking at Donald John like she’s his grandmamma.
Merkle be like, “You’re going to be a good boy, aren’t you Donnie? Because if you aren’t, I have some whips I’m going to use on you.”
But let Donald John tell it, everything is peachy.
