EU braces for US tariffs on steel and aluminum – T-Mobile US and Sprint agree to merge
The EU doesn't want to just put up with Donald Trump's higher import tariffs and is mulling retaliatory measures. But German firms, in particular, fear that no one would profit from an escalation of the situation.
The United States has made true on its promise to hit the European Union with higher import tariffs on steel and aluminum. But there needs to be a distinction between bluster and true inequality says DW's Timothy Rooks.
The Trump administration has pushed back its decision on tariffs for steel and aluminum from the European Union and other US allies until June 1. Other countries have managed to secure deals for permanent exemptions.
Donald Trump's move to slap tariffs on the EU is wrong and damaging to trans-Atlantic ties, two ex-US ambassadors to Brussels under Barack Obama and George W. Bush told DW. They have a clear message for Europe.
