Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “Make America whine again: Trump threatens French wine with tariffs”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

“France charges us a lot for the wine. And yet we charge them very little for French wine,” Trump told CNBC during an interview. He said that California winemakers have complained to him about the EU tariffs.

“So the wineries come to me and say ’Sir, we’re paying a lot of money to put our product into France, and you’re letting’—meaning, this country is allowing—‘these French wines, which are great wines, but we have great wines too — allowing it to come in for nothing. It’s not fair,’” said Trump.

He continued: “And you know what? It’s not fair. We’ll do something about it.”

The US president targeted French wine last year when he tweeted that France makes it hard for the United States to sell wine in the country.

“On Trade, France makes excellent wine, but so does the US. The problem is that France makes it very hard for the US to sell its wines into France, and charges big Tariffs, whereas the US makes it easy for French wines, and charges very small Tariffs. Not fair, must change!” Trump wrote.
