  1. Trump has just explained that he’s discovered the “chicken” tax on light trucks, although I doubt anybody has explained why it’s called that. Theoretically the EU could call his bluff by agreeing to drop tariffs on US cars that nobody in Europe (and America) wants anyway. I say theoretically, because Trump would never agree to dropping the “chicken” tax now that he’s discovered the part it’s played in boosting US manufacturers sales of light trucks. In fact, getting the EU to drop its “unfair taxes” on US imported cars would be a win equal to his win in getting South Korea to raise its allowance of US car imports from 25% to 50% when they didn’t even reach the 25% target.
