Already sourced and proved it was not a deal, as admitted by Obama, and it was not even signed. As to China ...


In each of the seven chapters of the draft, Reuters reported, China had deleted commitments to change laws to resolve U.S. complaints: theft of U.S. intellectual property and trade secrets, forced technology transfers, competition policy, access to financial services and currency manipulation.

See occam, and that’s why nobody trusts the us anymore. Because we give them deals and agreements and then go back on them. Just yesterday merkel announced that Europe can no longer count on us either, and that they will be pursuing their own interests as well.

That's not even what Merkel said, but you have already proven you don't mind lying.

The chancellor told a 2,500-strong crowd in the Bavarian capital that Germany and Europe would naturally strive to remain on good terms with the US, Britain and other countries, “even with Russia”, but added: “We have to know that we must fight for our future on our own, for our destiny as Europeans.”

www.theguardian.com...

So it was not the US, it was US and Britain, and it was about them protecting and advancing the interests of Germany. They should protect themselves, don't you agree? Germany should be the one advancing the interests of Germany, not the US and the UK, right?

Macron apparently doesn't agree.

Macron, however, was more optimistic about the relationship with Trump. “I met a leader who has strong convictions on a number of subjects, some of which I share, such as terrorism or upholding our rank in the league of nations,” the French president said.

You’re mistaken, and that’s not what it’s about. It’s about us throwing sanctions all around, including on them, and them not wanting to be involved in our trade wars anymore as they no longer want to follow our lead in attacking people’s economies because their economy gets hurt by it more than ours.

www.informationclearinghouse.info...

“Relations between the two allies, the US and the EU, particularly with Germany, have deteriorated since Washington withdrew from the 2015 Iran nuclear DEAL, threatening the European firms there with sanctions and imposing higher import tariffs. Angela Merkel’s latest call to close ranks comes just ahead of Donald Trump’s decision on new duties.

In an interview with the German daily Zueddeutche Zeitung ahead of the European elections Chancellor Angela Merkel has urged Europe to unite and stand up to the US, Russia, and China. Amid the ongoing tussle with Washington over higher import tariffs and the US pulling out of the Iran deal, one of Europe’s most powerful politicians stated that “the old certainties of the postwar order no longer apply” expressing confidence that “Europe needs to reposition itself in a changed world”.

She admitted that Europe appears weak since the US withdrew from the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action and pointed out that the euro is struggling to counter US sanctions because it is not the world’s leading currency. She, however, praised the fact that Europe is not divided on this issue like it was about the Iraq war.

Merkel pointed out that Germany, France, and Britain have a different approach than the US and admitted that it shares common interests with Russia and China.“

Notice it mentions the IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL that the us pulled out of.

Yes, America is not doing what Merkel wants like Obama did so she is throwing a fit and saying Germany needs to look after itself. She also included the UK.

There was no Iran Nuclear Deal. Obama said so himself, it is not a legally binding deal. Your source is something written by Sputnik, and appears to be almost all opinion.


In a letter recently released by Representative Mike Pompeo (R-KS), the State Department emphasized that the Iran deal – the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) – is not binding under international law.


This is from Obama's State Department.

The success of the JCPOA will depend not on whether it is legally binding or signed, but rather on the extensive verification measures we have put in place, as well as Iran’s understanding that we have the capacity to re-impose – and ramp up – our sanctions if Iran does not meet its commitments.

So the US can simply re-impose sanctions at any time because there is no actual binding agreement.

Keep making yourself look stupid.

Well, I suppose everyone has their own opinion on whether word should be kept, once given. You apparently take a pretty loose view of honesty and integrity but hey, to each their own.

So, I just read the White House report on how, exactly, they claim China has been “taking advantage” of the us. It pretty much reads like a whining crybaby complaining about China doing things to us that we have been doing to almost every 3rd world nation for decades. Complaining about them dumping subsidized products in our market making our producers unable to compete. Or subsidizing their own businesses in China making it harder for our companies to compete there. Charging higher tariffs on our cars than we do on theirs. So on and so on. It’s pretty sad.
