Trump: EU, US to work toward 'zero tariffs' - BRICS summit under shadow of global trade tensions
European Union member nations have paved the way for the beginning of formal trade negotiations with the United States. The move comes amid a threat by Donald Trump to impose tariffs on the EU over Airbus subsidies.
US President Donald Trump gave his "word" to the EU Commission head that he would hold off on tariffs on EU cars, Juncker told German media. Representatives of US car makers warned a tariff hike would backfire.
US President Donald Trump has said he would delay a planned US hike in tariffs scheduled for March 1, citing progress in trade talks with Beijing. He described recent meetings as "very productive."
The European Commission president pledged to strengthen the EU border and a new trade agreement with Africa. Juncker pushed for strengthening the bloc's international role, as the US retreats from the world stage.
