[email protected] seems puzzled by @realDonaldTrump's latest threats, against cars, because she says just 2 million cars are produced in the US by European companies, which provide American jobs. She says Trump's opinion is "not based on fact."

"Can't see how allies like the EU threaten US national security", says EU's @MalmstromEU, responding to threatened tariffs on steel and aluminum while announcing possible countermeasures

[email protected]: The new Fake News narrative is that there is CHAOS in the White House. Wrong. People will always come and go, and I want strong dialogue before making a final decision. I still have some people that I want to change (always seeking perfection). There is no Chaos, only great Energy.
