CHANCELLOR MERKEL HAD TO EXPLAIN SOMETHING 11 TIMES BEFORE TRUMP UNDERSTOOD IT

President Donald Trump is “like a smart person” but that still means that he occasionally has trouble learning new things, like the fundamentals of European Union (‘EU’) trade law.

Mr. Trump reportedly didn’t understand why the United States cannot commence separate trade deals with the individual nations that comprise the EU.

Former Quantum Chemist, Germany’s Chancellor Merkel, stepped in to give President Trump some help.

It only took her eleven times to explain it before Mr. Trump understood it.

According to the Times of London, a senior German official said:

“Ten times Trump asked [German chancellor Angela Merkel] if he could negotiate a trade deal with Germany. Every time she replied, ‘You can’t do a trade deal with Germany, only the EU,” the official said. “On the eleventh refusal, Trump finally got the message, ‘Oh, we’ll do a deal with Europe then.'”

Chancellor Merkel allegedly told her cabinet that Mr. Trump had “very basic misunderstandings” of the “fundamentals” of EU trade.
