Trump threatens to tax European auto imports

Apart from Levis, looks like they'll be doing Euros a favour by limiting the sale of leaky old bangers and second rate piss..

Quote:
European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker told German television that "We will put tariffs on Harley-Davidson (motorcycles), on bourbon and on blue jeans - Levis."
Quote:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump kept up pressure on trading partners on Saturday, threatening European automakers with a tax on imports if the European Union retaliates against his plan to slap tariffs on aluminum and steel.

Trump's tweet suggested he is refusing to yield to U.S. business interests and foreign trading partners alarmed at the prospect of a trade war that rattled financial markets this week.

Well. Apart from Ford (struggling BTW) and roller-skate Daewoos badged as Chevvies, he's right. Europeans don't buy American cars.

I mean. Given the choice, who in their right mind would?
