Japan’s Bowling Ball Test

March 21, 2018

While defending his trade war during a fundraising speech in Missouri last week, President Trump claimed that in Japan, to test American auto imports, “they take a bowling ball from 20 feet up in the air and they drop it on the hood of the car. And if the hood dents, then the car doesn’t qualify…It’s horrible, the way we’re treated.”

The Japanese were baffled, since they don’t do that. Americans were, too, until they dug up the 2010 Nissan commercial above.
