I can see why Dump puts tax on Scottish Whiskey as their Whiskey is shite 🤣🤣

Scots want independence, then sort this one yourselves. This is a benefit of being in the EU.

Turning into a long meeting between Boris and the Trumpster. Diplomatic immunity. Whiskey tarrifs. Isis Britons returning to the UK. Oh and then home to Brexit. 😂😂

Not his issue. Blame your beloved EU and this fiddling of state aid laws to illegally fund Airbus. You know what would help. A no deal brexit the zeroing of tarrif and a free trade deal with the US 🤣

You could always just dump all the unsold barrels on his good course.

Trump's unlikely to listen to taking away immunity from that dimplomats wife who knocked off the 19 year old who died its even less likely he'll listen about tax on scotch whisky

Does this include Welsh whisky? Penderyn for example?

This a tax imposed on the EU, so when we leave it can easily be sorted.

Plan B to make Johnson look good, get Brexit done, and USA can asset strip our country. That's Trump's plan B. I have no idea about Johnson

Right. Like realDonaldTrump will listen. BorisJohnson is about to learn the hard way that he has no clout.

PM just replied to this tweet by saying 'Ok lets call that plan B' Weird?!

Make Whisky Great Again!

Trump bans immigrants from entering US if they are too poor to afford healthcareVisas will be denied for people who need government subsidies to buy insurance But the Polish. Considering Trump is in court trying to declare ACA unconstitutional this action from him is just another racist move. American’s themselves can’t afford insurance so this is a joke. Land of the free eh? There are American citizens who are too poor to afford health care. Maybe there is a common denominator here? 🤔
