Donald Trump’s threat that he will impose tariffs on EU car imports may trigger Brussels. Trump’s commercial policy has already caused tensions in steel and aluminum.
On Sunday, Trump compared European countries with China in terms of trade with the United States.
Twitter Trump has announced that European car manufacturers will be subject to criminal sanctions if barriers to US exports are not abolished.
This is the reason for the first written statement of the European Commission. The document states that this move on the part of the United States, the imposition of car tariffs will not be accepted by the international community and will “further damage the reputation” of the United States.
The document also states that a possible trade war between the EU and the United States will lead to broken political relations, to trade, growth and jobs in the United States. EU leaders warned last week that the EU would respond to all US tariffs on European production.
We are expecting a response from the White House.
