We all know how the President of the United States of America, Mr. Donald Trump, has been throwing garbage on every country other than his own, right? For him, USA is all that matters in the world, while every other country has been busy in defrauding them for as long as he can remember. Trump, recently, accused the EU, which includes France, of unfair trade practices, including the charging of higher tariffs.
Regardless of how thick headed the current President of the United States might be, the fact remains that the country is, perhaps, the most important trading partner of the EU. The time requires for the European countries to be united in the cause, but Germany has, once again, decided to be a disappointment.
Germany has urged the EU to negotiate a new deal with the USA, the basic purpose of which will be reduce the tariffs on a number of goods, including cars. France, on the other hand, does not wish the EU to make any kind of concessions, whatsoever, owing to how the concessions will only serve to protect Germany’s export-led industry and economy while marring the interests of France and its automotive industry.
When you take into perspective, it is not difficult to realize that Germany is, once again, looking out for its own interest, at the expense of others—this time in the automotive sector. It is time for the French government to give priority to its economy, sovereignty and automotive industry, rather than politics and the country’s ties with the European Union. The country needs to make a stand for its stance on the matter, even if it means standing up against the likes of Germany. After all, France has done it successfully before as well, haven’t they?
