Trump strikes trade deal with E.U.

Announcement follows meeting with EU Commission President Juncker

By S.A. Miller - The Washington Times - Wednesday, July 25, 2018
President Trump struck a trade deal Wednesday with the European Union, reaping significant concessions as top E.U. officials moved to avoid an escalating tariff war with the U.S., according to early reports.

The deal involved the E.U. importing more U.S. soybeans, lowering industrial tariffs and working on an agreement to import more liquified natural gas (LNG) from America, according to a Dow Jones report.

The deal followed a high-stakes meeting between Mr. Trump and E.U. Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker.

The two leaders faced off over escalating dispute over tariffs and trade barriers that block U.S. goods. The big dispute is over cars, with Mr. Trump threatening massive tariffs on if for the E.U. didn’t lower high tariffs on cars.

Expectations of the announced deal, with reporters summoned to the Rose Garden for an announcement, sent the stock market soaring. The Dow Jones Industrial Average climbed more than 170 points after being down about 50 points early in the afternoon.

OH NO!!! That is terrible news for Democrats. The MSM will not be talking about that until they make up a narrative about what he didn't do.
Or what he should have done different. No good Trump news goes un-attacked.

In the mean time there is much more important news, like Cohen's secret tape about a payment that may or may not have been cash.

It looks like Trumps threats paid off. I will say, I was not a fan of the plan to raise tariff's, but it sounds like it brought the EU to the table. Good for him!

Instant jump in the Stock Market, I'm so glad I invested right after Trump was elected.

I would not have, if Hillary had been elected, nor would 1,000's of others.

I did the same and put a lot of money into some pretty aggressive funds. They are currently paying close to 30%. You have to love it!

While I'm not a fan of tariffs in general, but it seems to have worked here.
Excellent!
