‘We have the worst job in the world’ – US President Donald Trump on the EU
The US President has slammed the European Union as a “disaster” for Irish people and called for a return to the “preferred market”.
“We have a terrible job in Europe,” he told the BBC’s Andrew Marr show on Sunday.
It is a catastrophe for the entire European Union. “
It is a disaster for the Irish people.
“And I’m not talking about me, I’m talking about you. “
“That’s why we have to get back to the ‘preferred’ market. “
“You know, I can’t believe we’re going through this. “
I mean, it is an absolute disaster for us.” “
You know, I can’t believe we’re going through this.
I mean, it is an absolute disaster for us.”
The US president also warned against “bad apples” in Europe and called on his successor to “get the job done”.
The US and Ireland have a history of trade conflict dating back to World War II.
In 2016, the two nations agreed to rejoin the single market and customs union after a 12-year hiatus.
But the two countries have been embroiled in a string of trade disputes over the past year, including over a new $7.6bn US tariff on Irish beef.
Earlier this month, US Secretary of State John Kerry accused Ireland of “fraud and deception” over its beef imports.
“The Irish Government is one of the worst offenders in Europe when it comes to cheating on our tariffs and other trade measures,” Mr Kerry said.
“What we have seen over the last 12 years is Ireland getting away with a lot of things.”
