Trump threatens 25% auto tariff if no EU trade deal

January 22, 2020: US President Donald Trump relaunched a major trade offensive against Europe on Wednesday, threatening to hit the EU with damaging auto tariffs if Europeans failed to agree a long-delayed trade deal.

“The European Union is tougher to deal with than anybody. They've taken advantage of our country for many years.” Trump told Fox Business News on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos.

“Ultimately, it will be very easy because if we can't make a deal, we'll have to put 25 percent tariffs on their cars,” he added.
