TRUMP: "At our meeting, I asked them, 'How are you doing? How is business?' They said that it's good. I asked them further, 'How are you doing with other countries, mainly  international sales?' They told me without even complaining, because they have been so mistreated for so long, that they have become used to it that it is very hard to do business with other countries because they tax our goods at such a high rate. They said that in the case of another country, they taxed their motorcycles at 100 percent. They weren’t even asking for a change, but I am.”
