US President Trump up and tweeting as the ECB decision was released 8 MarchNot like him to come second in hogging the headlines. Hadn’t he read our ECB heads up? !
«Looking forward to 3:30 P.M. meeting today at the White House. We have to protect & build our Steel and Aluminum Industries while at the same time showing great flexibility and cooperation toward those that are real friends and treat us fairly on both trade and the military»
Who does he regard as real friends and treating them fairly? Or is that just a ploy to encourage a more conciliatory tone from trade partners less than enamoured with him right now? Maybe a bit late for that now if he will use the meeting to make the tariffs official.
Note the usual rubbish use of caps and misspelling of aluminium. Mind you he is American who as a nation just can’t seem to grasp how the word should be spelt and hence pronounced. Just teasing before our US readers take offence and cut me down in the comments section!
Meanwhile, and more importantly, EURUSD back up to 1.2427, EURGBP 0.8945 and EURJPY 131.80 after paring a few post-ECB gains
