Trump wavers after saying NHS must be on table in US-UK trade talks | The Guardian |

Donald Trump has declared he wants the NHS to be on the table in any US-UK trade deal and refused to meet the "negative" Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn, who pledged to oppose US corporations taking over the health service with every breath in his body.


Appearing earlier in the day alongside the outgoing prime minister at a joint press conference, Trump said US companies should have market access to every sector of the British economy as part of any deal, which he said could lead to a tripling of trade with the UK.

"When you're dealing on trade, everything is on the table. So NHS or anything else. A lot more than that," he said, although May appeared to have to explain to Trump what the NHS was before he answered the question.

Trump's statement drew immediate condemnation from several Tory leadership hopefuls as well as senior Labour politicians.

So-called fair trade and religious freedom and quality standards and GNP figures and quota are NON-TARIFF BARRIERS to business.

ECONOMIC SANCTION against a government is a non-tariff barrier to international trade--exchange--of currencies, credit, goods and services.

NATO members, more than any other sovereigns, routinely confiscate the treasuries of sanctioned governments to compel obedience to that league of nations' sanctimonious threats and deceits.

The effects of trade (dis)agreement on the quality of life people who rely on government run a gamut of "collective" punishment or reward from industry sector to siege warfare on scores of millions.

What is the matter with these people?
