Limbaugh: Trade War Surrender, Trump Brings E.U. to Its Knees

On his nationally syndicated radio program Thursday, host Rush Limbaugh credited President Donald Trump for taking care of the European Union by forcing them to cave on trade barriers, essentially bringing them to their knees, said Limbaugh.

When discussing the meeting between Trump and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker on Wednesday, in which the leaders agreed to work toward eliminating tariffs and barriers on trade, Limbaugh said, “So we have the trade wars: The Drive-Bys are refusing to credit President Trump for bringing the European Union to its knees. Donald Trump is fixing the legion of trade imbalances this nation has had to put up with for decades. European Union, as of yesterday, done. Now, it may not be politic to say that the European Union caved, but it’s pretty accurate nevertheless.”

Trump tweeted following the meeting that “European Union representatives told me that they would start buying soybeans from our great farmers immediately.” The president said additionally that Europe would be buying “vast amounts” of liquid natural gas (LNG).

This comes in light of Trump’s announcement on Tuesday in which the administration pledged up to $12 billion in relief for farmers hurt by the on-going trade battles.

“So we have the trade wars: The Drive-Bys are refusing to credit President Trump for bringing the European Union to its knees. And now it’s on to the ChiComs, it’s on to Mexico, it’s on to Canada, and all of these are going to happen. And it’s all according to plan. If you’re gonna do tariffs, you do it when your economy is roaring, and ours is. And what Trump said he wanted, no tariffs, no taxes, no barriers.

“Now, piece by piece, Donald Trump is handling every trade situation. Piece by piece, Donald Trump is fixing the legion of trade imbalances this nation has had to put up with for decades. European Union, as of yesterday, done. Now, it may not be politic to say that the European Union caved, but it’s pretty accurate nevertheless.

“Donald Trump told them what was gonna be and how it was gonna be, and they resisted, and they went to their friends in the media, and they said, “This guy’s crazy. We can’t do business with a guy like this. This guy’s trying to alter all these years of business of status quo,” and Trump said this is the way it’s gonna be.”
