THERESA MAY told Donald Trump to abandon a “trade-war” with the EU despite the bloc imposing a 10% Tariff on US Cars, whilst the United States has a minor 2.5% on EU-made cars, sparking claims that Theresa is once again, appeasing the EU.
According to reports, she told of her “deep concern” over Trumps plans for tariffs of 25% on steel imports and 10% on aluminium imports to protect U.S. jobs against cheap Chinese steal, a problem that also affects UK steel companies.
“The prime minister raised our deep concern at the president’s forthcoming announcement on steel and aluminium tariffs, noting that multilateral action was the only way to resolve the problem of global overcapacity in all parties’ interests,” said Number 10.
Following Trump’s announcement, the E.U. said it could impose tariffs on U.S. imports such as Harley-Davidson motorbikes, Levi’s jeans and Kentucky bourbon whiskey.
Donald Trump fired back and said:
If the E.U. wants to further increase their already massive tariffs and barriers on U.S. companies doing business there, we will simply apply a Tax on their Cars which freely pour into the U.S. They make it impossible for our cars (and more) to sell there. Big trade imbalance!
