That is exactly right.

I happen to had first hand experience with this. I made some aftermarket parts that I ended up selling (via German BMW forum) in Europe, when I found out I had to lower my prices (to stay competitive), because German customers had to pay ~23% EU import tax. And let me tell you all, customs are real Nazis about it. You can't just send as gift or put a lower value on it to avoid those taxes, they open the packages up, inspect, and in some cases even confiscated them. DOES THAT SOUND LIKE FREE TRADE? Who the hell negotiated these deals? This is just one example of how the US is getting shafted and it is about time someone does something about it.

Of course the media, and all the sheeple, will make Trump the bad guy, when in fact he is trying to fix previous administrations foul ups and sell outs.

Rant over.
