TRUMP: “The president and I working on trade. The trade with France is complicated because we have the European Union. I would rather deal just with France. The Union is very tough for us. They have trade barriers that are unacceptable. Our farmers can’t send their products into the European Union as easily as they should and we accept their products. We have to make a change. They understand that. We’re negotiating, Wilbur and Steve and everybody, we're negotiating with the European Union. But it’s been very unfair a long time. We had a trade deficit with the European Union of $151 billion last year. That’s unacceptable. This has been going on for many years. That’s unacceptable.”
