Europe mulls retalitation

THE European Union will consider introducing tariffs on coal, pharmaceuticals and chemical products from the United States if President Donald Trump imposes restrictions on European cars, Germany’s Wirtschaftswoche magazine reported yesterday.

“Depending on progress made during the visit of European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, the member states will decide on their future strategy at the end of next week,” an unnamed EU diplomat was quoted as saying.

The list of countermeasures could then be agreed on. Juncker heads to Washington next week to discuss strained relations after Trump imposed tariffs on EU steel and aluminum, and following threats to extend those to cars.
