TRUMP: "Of course, the big story continues to be Trump’s trade war. On Thursday, he slapped a 10% tariff on aluminum and 25% on steel. It could spark a trade war, especially after trump’s trade advisor said there will be no exceptions made for allies. Mr. President, please, we can’t lose any more allies. At this point, it’s Israel, the U.K., and whatever country your wives are from. It’s Wife-Sylvania, I think. And now, the E.U. has threatened to retaliate with tariffs on Harley-Davidson motorcycles, bourbon, and blue jeans. Wow, that is a real blow to America’s midlife-crisis industry."
