President Trump: WTO needs to change ways or US will do 'something'

  • Mark Rutte January 2016

"They have been treating us very badly for many, many years and that's why we were at a big disadvantage with the WTO".

We know how vindictive and petty and spiteful this man is, and now that we've had the prime minister of the Netherlands yell, "No", to him, I can only imagine what kind of disgusting retaliatory actions Trump is going to take against the European Union now.

Mr Trump and Mr Rutte will both be attending next week's North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meetings. That will be good, and if we do work it out, that'll be positive, and if we don't, it'll be positive also.

"It's a great honor", Trump told Rutte.

There is no update on whether Holden and the unidentified woman are still talking or have plans to see one another again. Upon landing in Dallas, Blair took a photo of the pair walking closely together at the baggage claim area.

Rutte also said the two leaders had made progress on the issue of United States passport checks at Schiphol airport, which is part of Trump's plan to restrict migration by vetting passengers before they board the plane. "We will work something out".

The Netherlands is part of the European Union, which has been involved in a trade dispute with Mr Trump over vehicle imports.

"It's not positive", finished Rutte. "The relationship with USA and Netherlands is 400 years old". Asked if he planned to pull out of the WTO, Trump said the trade organization had treated the U.S. Trump told the PM at the beginning of the meeting that it's like the "Academy Awards" as all the cameras flashed.

I think the Dutch Prime Minister's shock and bewilderment at the mainstream media's behavior mirrors the reaction of the average, non-highly partisan American. Trump responded by tweeting that the United States would impose a 20 percent tax on all European cars if the E.U. did not remove existing tariffs, and then saying in a televised interview with Fox News that the E.U.is "as bad as China" when it comes to trade. On Monday, the Dutch leader did just that with a concise, resounding "No".
