    Macron has been banging an EU army drum lately and now Merkel is joining in.


    Angela Merkel called for the creation of a 'real, true' European army during a speech to EU ministers on Tuesday in a rebuke to President Trump.

    The German Chancellor also called for a European Security Council that would be responsible for coordinating defense policy on the continent.

    Manny Macron's attitude is not sitting well with Spanky......



    WHAT'S ON THE PRESIDENT'S MIND -- @realDonaldTrump at 6:50 a.m.: "Emmanuel Macron suggests building its own army to protect Europe against the U.S., China and Russia. But it was Germany in World Wars One & Two -- How did that work out for France? They were starting to learn German in Paris before the U.S. came along. Pay for NATO or not!"


    ... at 8:07 a.m.:
    "On Trade, France makes excellent wine, but so does the U.S. The problem is that France makes it very hard for the U.S. to sell its wines into France, and charges big Tariffs, whereas the U.S. makes it easy for French wines, and charges very small Tariffs. Not fair, must change!"



    ... at 8:17 a.m.:
    "The problem is that Emmanuel suffers from a very low Approval Rating in France, 26%, and an unemployment rate of almost 10%. He was just trying to get onto another subject. By the way, there is no country more Nationalist than France, very proud people-and rightfully so!........"



    ... at 8:18 a.m.:
    "......MAKE FRANCE GREAT AGAIN!"

    As the Trump tweet correctly suggests, America does have an uneven relationship with France where wine importing and exporting is concerned. The United States is currently the biggest export market for French wine, while American bottles are not as popular in France, or across Europe in general. America pulls in about a third of all European Union wine exports — roughly $25 billion worth of product per year — according to a report by Bloomberg. Meanwhile, American wine makes up only about 16 percent of all EU imports. The EU tariffs on U.S. wine run between $0.11 to $0.29 per bottle, while the U.S. charges $0.05 and $0.14, Axios reports. With this morning’s tweet, Trump — a lifelong teetotaler — appears to be stoking the flames of a trade war with France, a move that could potentially put the squeeze on American winemakers, who are already fretting over increased tariffs on exports to China.
