Prime Minister Mark Rutte of the Netherlands interrupted President Donald Trump on Monday as he was saying that tariffs against the European Union would be a “positive” step.

During a pool spray with Rutte in the Oval Office, Trump said that he hoped he could “work something out” with EU leaders to prevent the tariffs his administration has vowed to levy.

“If we do work it out, that will be positive,” Trump said. “And if we don’t, it will be positive also.”

“No!” Rutte interrupted.

“Just think about those cars that pour in here,” Trump continued.

“It’s not positive,” the Dutch prime minister insisted. “We have to work something out.”

You can tell that Trump is simply not used to people disagreeing with him, while the Dutch Prime Minister is not used to having to interact publicly with such a fucking moron.

I hope that more foreign leaders start calling Trump out publicly during these photo-ops. 

I mean why not? 

He is going to lie about everything they talked about after they leave anyway, they might as well shout a little truth to the masses before they are summarily dismissed from Cheeto Hitler’s presence.

    “No, it’s not positive” is what I yell every time Trump opens his mouth.

      If he wants to start the “this is the United States and THIS is how it’s going to be,” maybe more leaders should politely say “eff off.”
      We don’t own the world. He sure thinks he does.

    OT:’Democrats will fight until their last breath to stop the nomination.
    Any administration that isn’t smart enough to look for a blue verified check mark on a Twitter account should not be making Supreme Court nominations.’

    Our Dutch prime minister.
    In the last 24 hours has been depicted as the PM from Denmark, and as a SCOTUS nominee.

    The recognition we have 🙂

    So far all his “deals” have been detrimental to the US, now he is bragging that if it weren’t for him, we would be at war with N. Korea. Hardly, more like we would not be the laughing stock of the world.

    I hope more world leaders tell trump exactly what they think of his “art of the con” deals.

      His nickname should be “Don the Con.” Trump doesn’t understand YET that most people see right through him.

    ‘Roberta Jacobson, the former U.S. Ambassador to Mexico joins Christiane Amanpour to discuss Mexico’s president-elect, Andrés Manuel López Obrador as well as her resignation from the State Department in May. Christopher Hill, the former U.S. Ambassador to South Korea discusses new satellite images that suggest Kim Jong Un is building up the country’s nuclear infrastructure.’

    “U.S. President Donald Trump said on Monday he had spoken to Mexican President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador about border security and believed the new Mexican leader would help the United States with its border issue.

    Trump, speaking to reporters during a meeting with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, said he and Lopez Obrador also discussed the North American Free Trade Agreement and a possible separate trade deal between Mexico and the United States.
