Donald Trump

We want reciprocal — mirror. Some people call it a mirror tariff or a mirror tax. Just use the word reciprocal. If they charge us, we charge them the same thing. That’s the way it’s got to be. That’s not the way it is. For many, many years — for many decades, it has not been that way.
And I will say, the people we’re negotiating with — smilingly, they really agree with us. I really believe they cannot believe they’ve gotten away with this for so long.
I’ll talk to Prime Minister Abe of Japan and others — great guy, friend of mine — and there will be a little smile on their face. And the smile is, “I can’t believe we’ve been able to take advantage of the United States for so long.” So those days are over.

    トランプ氏「もうだまされない」 日本の要求通さず

    鉄鋼・アルミ輸入制限を発動

     トランプ米政権は23日、鉄鋼とアルミニウムの輸入制限を発動した。日本政府は日本を適用対象から外すように求めてきたが、要求は通らなかった。日本はこれまで安倍晋三首相とトランプ氏の信頼関係を基盤に経済、外交の戦略を立ててきたが、首脳の個人的な関係に頼る限界がのぞく。

     「日本の安倍首相らは『こんなに長い間、米国をうまくだませたなんて信じられない』とほくそ笑んでいる。そんな日々はもう終わりだ」。
