Washington - President Donald Trump says he’s planning to announce a “reciprocal tax” on countries that take advantage of the United States on trade, with more details to be released later this week.

Trump is noting his plans for the so-called tax in a meeting with state and local leaders. He says they’ll be hearing about it during the week and the coming months.

Trump is also addressing the ongoing negotiations over the North American Free Trade Agreement and says he’s hopeful it will be successful.

Trump was brilliant today as he spoke during his meeting which was open to the press. How anyone can listen to this man and have anything other than the highest praise and admiration is beyond me. He is a gift from G-d to the American people and especially to Israel and Jews everywhere.
