DW's Brent Goff talks to political commentator Ethan Bearman about the alleged Trump-Russia collusion
In her annual summer press Q&A session, the German chancellor stressed that Europe and the US are not enemies. She also held up the EU as a model of a "win-win" situation — words clearly aimed in Washington's direction.
The trade conflicts between the US and several of its biggest partners are escalating. Among those wary of the consequences are American companies and thousands are scrambling to be made exempt from certain tariffs.
US President Donald Trump has doubled down on his efforts for better ties with Russia, saying the Helsinki summit was a success. The US president now hopes to host Putin in Washington before year's end.
In the wake of US tariffs on steel and aluminum, the EU has made several counter moves and has now raised tariffs of its own on steel imports which exceed quotas based on current levels.
