EU Warns US Imposing Car Import Taxes Could Backfire

European Union threatens to retaliate in growing trade war, if the USA places tariffs on European cars, the FT reports.

Trump railed against his trading partners during the meeting, according to sources, and withdrew his support for a joint communique after leaving the summit, angering and bewildering some of Washington's closest allies.

Growing strains between the United States and its worldwide trade partners could have a disproportionate impact on South Carolina's economy, potentially hitting local workers and consumers in their wallets.

"European Union, take a look at the auto situation", he went on.

Instead, the summit is expected to produce a modest communique, which affirms the commitment of both sides to the multilateral trading system and promises to set up a working group on modernizing the WTO, EU officials said.

"We have been in trade deficits with almost every country across the globe for years, and the president wants to ensure that that doesn't continue", Sanders said. In other words, we had a deficit with the European Union.

Bartiromo asked President Trump if the US should be banding with allies like the European Union to try to "stop China from stealing from" the U.S.

China's Foreign Ministry did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Beijing's summit aims.

The campaign will use "state-by-state analysis" to "argue that Trump is risking a global trade war that will hit the wallets of US consumers", Reuters reports.

Trump has slapped tariffs on billions of dollars worth of steel and aluminum imports from China, the European Union, Canada and others, prompting retaliation against United States products.

Its ironic that the protectionist concept of trade tariffs will essentially threaten jobs in the U.S., as usual in any conflict, trade or otherwise, there is always "collateral damage".

China has warned that it won't yield to Trump's pressure. "Trump only understands the language of power", one high-ranking European Union diplomat told Handelsblatt.

Trump has defended the policies, arguing last month the tariffs are necessary because the being "ripped off by other countries". That same state, which flipped for Trump in 2016, is also expected to lose $624 million in soybean sales after China issued sweeping tariffs in response to Trump.

China has promised to open up.

According to a report in the Financial Times, a letter sent by the European Commission to the US Department of Commerce says the EU could hit $US300 billion of US goods with tariffs if Trump follows through on his threats to place big taxes on European vehicles being imported in the US.

"We don't know if this offer to open up is genuine yet", a third European Union diplomat said.
