      After that, we're all gonna be f*cked. Also, buy the iPhone now, before Chinese tariffs set.



      President Donald Trump could delay auto tariffs on cars and car parts from the European Union, sources said Wednesday, just three days before a deadline on that deal.

      Shares in Ford and General Motors ticked upwards on Wednesday's news that a 25 percent tariff was likely off the table for now, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose by 100 points.

      CNBC first reported news of the administration’s plans, which were confirmed by a source briefed on the talks, an administration official, and two foreign officials. Trump has ordered a delay of up to six months in implementing any new tariffs against Europe, CNBC said.

      Trump faced a May 18 deadline to decide whether to levy additional duties on European-made autos and automotive parts, a move that critics — including a bipartisan group in Congress — warn could have a substantial impact on American jobs and more broadly, the U.S. economy.

      The deadline comes 90 days after the completion of a study by the U.S. Commerce Department that concluded auto imports pose a threat to American national security. The president could also take steps to put new tariffs on Japanese-made automotive products.


      Representatives of the EU have been meeting with their counterparts in Washington, hoping to head off the new trade battle. The EU has raised the possibility of eliminating all automotive tariffs between the two regions. But should Trump move to enact new trade restrictions, EU officials have said they will respond in kind.

      “We are already preparing a list of possible items that would be on that list,” Cecilia Malmström, the chief trade negotiator for the EU, said in an interview on Bloomberg Television earlier this week. “The moment this is official — if this happens, I still hope it won’t — then we would publish that list.” Malmström said that a response from Europe would “happen quite rapidly.’

      Just secured my Audi, and pre-paid maintenance.

      Meanwhile in Europe: Buy that American Jeans right now before EU slaps tariffs.

      Hopefully there's no 25% tariff ever, but I'm glad to hear the May 18th deadline might not mean anything as my Cayman is on a boat right now.

      Barely made it! Make sure to get that maintenance plan in there. But you never know with this president.

      As long as it is the bestest plan...game on, in reality prices of parts will go up again like last year and push down the price of used euro cars. So from TCL logic this is great news

      Who is at your left, who is at your right? It all depends. Just do a 180 degree turn, and everything is now different. Think about it for a moment.

      This isn't going to happen, so you all can just chill the **** out.

      Germany will not allow this, and Merkel will capitulate. If it does happen they'll be very temporary once Germany (which has been teetering on entering a recession) actually enters one from this.

      People really underestimate how vital the US consumer is for China, and the EU. We have the negotiating power, not them. The largest economy in the world is still the US by some margin, and 70% of the US GDP is consumer spending.
