U.S President-elect Donald Trump warned German car companies he would impose a border tax of 35 per cent on vehicles imported to the U.S. market, a plan that drew sharp rebukes from Berlin and hit the automakers’ shares.

In an interview with German newspaper Bild, published on Monday, Trump criticized German carmakers such as BMW, Daimler and Volkswagen for failing to produce more cars on U.S. soil.
“If you want to build cars in the world, then I wish you all the best. You can build cars for the United States, but for every car that comes to the USA, you will pay 35 per cent tax,” Trump said in remarks translated into German.
“I would tell BMW that if you are building a factory in Mexico and plan to sell cars to the USA, without a 35 per cent tax, then you can forget that,” Trump said.
OMG, Trump!!!
What do you guys think? Will he make it happen?

Lol.

Here's Germany's Economy Minister respond:
Speaking in tabloid newspaper Bild, German Economy Minister Sigmar Gabriel said that rather than trying to penalize German carmakers, the United States should instead respond by building better and more desirable cars.
A life spent making mistakes is not only more memorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.

Here's what's going to happen if he does:
Germany: "Okay, **** the US. We're focusing on China. Our car manufacturers are closing their American factories and moving to Guangzhou, and we're hitting all American cars with the same tariff you're charging."
China: "All American cars are now subject to the same tariff Americans are charging the Germans"
GM & Ford: "ARE YOU **** STUPID, TRUMP!? YOU'VE JUST KNOCKED US OUT OF OUR BIGGEST MARKETS!"
Could HAVE, not could OF. What does 'could of' even mean?

Wait, did China end their last round of crippling tariffs on US manufactured vehicles yet?

I can't remember if the US retaliated or not.

Except they cant just go and do that if the US says so. US is the strongest country on earth and Germany is their puppet. They are still being forced to cough up money to Israel for christsakes.

If the US wants Germany to pay that tariff they can. At the end of the day Trump is a capitalist. He will do whats necessary to fill his pockets.

Germany is the main power behind the European Union, a combined economy bigger than the US and China. The US doesn't tell them what to do. What reason would they have to deal with Trump's BS when China has just completed a rail line to Europe and Chinese people love European cars?

It doesnt matter if they are the head of the European Union(That wont mean anything if the US starts a war with them or starts weakening their government). The US actually allows them to run Europe because they are under their control. They wont be there without getting an OK from the US Face With Tears Of JoyFace With Tears Of JoyFace With Tears Of Joy.

At the end of the day if Trump wants to slap a 35% tariff. It will happen and Germany will just have to eat it up or suffer the consequences.

Collective guilt?. Face With Tears Of JoyFace With Tears Of JoyFace With Tears Of Joy. You think people who were born after the war who had nothing to do with it like to see their hard earned money going to someone else for 100 years?.

This is besides the reparations too.

They are forced by the US. Same with Japan. Japan can only do what the US would allow.
