The wins keep coming for Trump on his number one policy goal – making better trade deals for America.
Trump has sought to redo trade deals to make them reflect the current realities of international competition, not the past where we helped raise the world from poverty.
We rebuilt the world, unselfishly, and in the process created the greatest engine for peace and prosperity the world has ever seen.
We were happy to do it as the benefit to America was incalculable, but now that the world has caught up to us and the playing field is level, we need to act accordingly.
It may not be in the best interests of the billionaires, but it is for the average American. From The Daily Caller:
The European Commission approved U.S. soybeans to be used in the production of biofuels, a decision that will fulfill President Donald Trump’s demand that the European Union buy more of the product.
“Today’s decision is new proof that the European Union is delivering on our commitments,” EU Commission spokesman Margaritis Schinas said Tuesday. “[T]his means that as of today it will be easier for U.S. soybeans to enter the EU market.”
The EU currently imports around 14 million tonnes of soybeans annually for animal feed. The U.S. already holds a commanding share of the market. However, the commission’s decision to allow U.S. soybeans to be used in the making of biofuels — an agriculture-based energy alternative to fossil fuels — is expected to dramatically increase demand in Europe.
The approval follows months-long negotiations between the White House and EU leaders.
“We agreed first of all to work together toward zero tariffs, zero non-tariff barriers and zero subsidies on non-auto industrial goods,” the president said immediately after the July compromise, adding that “the European union is going to start almost immediately to buy a lot of soy beans.”
Trump is right to get tough with our trade relationships. China is by far the worst actor on the world stage and hopefully, by making a deal with the EU, we can team up to put the screws to China.
No one wants to stop China from prosperity, but they must not be allowed to do it by stealing the intellectual property from the west.
