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.
And he insulted Mr Trump calling him a populist provocateur before branding the USA a "strange country."
The incredibly bold statement comes as The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership trade negotiations being carried out mostly in secret between the EU and US are likely to hit the buffers.

What’s an EU...?
The European Union
Let’s see how good these guys are at taking on an aggressive Russian bear without the US.
Globalists will be Globalists.
EU soon to be MU(muslin union)
Great - then we can stop defending these idiots with US money, weapons and men!
EU depends more on import/exports then does the US. GO for it EU. This will only help Trump bring back the trillions trapped in overseas assets and accounts.
Reminds me of foolish Thomas Jefferson imposing an embargo on Europe when we were a pimple on the Continent’s economic tail. It destroyed American commerce and finally had to be repealed.

They won’t. They’d rather surrender. Every country located between Germany and Russia is terrified.
Dean Wormer decides that this is the year he's going to get the Deltas expelled and their chapter decertified; he places the fraternity on "double secret probation"
Sorry, I was being facetious. Better question...
Go to war? The EU and whose army?
Buy American! I’ll be buying a Ford or Chevy for my next big purchase.
I would say kick ‘em in the nuts, but there is no there, there.
How many EUniks should be tried for war crimes in Africa and the Middle East, hmmm?
Maybe they've got their butts all in a wad over the thought of having to defend themselves without Americans spilling their blood for them.
Yes World War II is long over along with the Cold War.
We can start slowly pulling bases out of Europe. See how they like that.
Gee, what could go wrong with this strategy?
“According to the EC website the EU exported £321 billion to the USA in 2015 while the USA exports £215 billion in return.”
“The European Union”
Methinks ur sarcasm filter maybe set a bit high ;)
I’m sure the defense spending requirements that almost none of them are meeting are a big reason they’ve got their knickers in a knot. That and trade.
