EU goes to WAR on Trump as it threatens to BLACKLIST AMERICA in tax clampdown
DONALD Trump's protectionism has already stirred a hornet's nest in Europe with bureaucrats threatening an unprecedented clampdown on the new US president before he's even entered the Oval office.
And the European Commission's tax chief has got the president-elect in his crosshairs after a meeting on Tuesday which began identifying countries which the EU intends to place on a tax blacklist.
In an astonishing interview European Commissioner for Economic and Financial Affairs, Taxation and Customs Pierre Moscovici refused to rule out putting the USA on its blacklist.

Americans need to learn that while they have the right to vote, their vote carries consequences.
I fully expect Trump "people" to begin hating on Europe, just as Putin and Russia wants.
All of this plays well into a weakened Russian state, one which has the growing juggernaut of China on its doorstep. Russia needs the US and the EU fighting one another. Electing Trump was a brilliant way to achieve this on Russia's part.
Well done America, you just did Putin's work for him.
Whatever happens the EU is playing with fire with these comments as according to its own figures it exports far outweigh imports with the US.
According to the EC website the EU exported £321 billion to the USA in 2015 while the USA exports £215 billion in return.
Meanwhile US investment in the EU is three times higher than in all of Asia.

If the EU refuse to cooperate with both USA and Russia, it's only a good thing for the ordinary people all around Europe. It just means they will speed up their own destruction.
They are scared because the anti-globalism movement is getting stronger and stronger. Next stop is Marine le Pen in France next year.
