GOP lawmakers tell Trump aides of tariff concern

Trump administration announces $12 billion 'bailout' for farmers

In response to the United States metals tariffs, the European Union has already imposed its own import duties on 2.8 billion euros ($3.3 billion) worth of U.S. goods, including products like bourbon and motorcycles that are made in some of the electoral districts that supported Trump.

Mr Trump noted the two continents together make up more than 50% of the world's trade, and said it would be good if they removed all tariffs and trade barriers as part of the discussions.

Trump also secured an agreement with Europe to buy more liquified natural gas from the United States. The U.S. has imposed tariffs on the metals, again justifying the action on national-security grounds. "We are representing half of world trade", the European leader said.

Trump also won a commitment to work together to reform the World Trade Organization to address some of his complaints about China on theft of USA technology, the behaviour of state-owned enterprises, and overcapacity in steel.

While Trump favors free trade, he is using tariffs as leverage to secure better deals for American companies.

Talks would seek to "resolve" US tariffs on steel and aluminum and Europe's retaliatory duties, a step back from Trump's import protections for USA metal producers.

European farmers, which are not major soybean producers, do not need to worry about competition from the United States, he said.

Trump has repeatedly called the European Union - which includes numerous U.S.'s oldest and most committed allies - an unfair trading partner and even labeled it a "foe".

United are set to be without a host of their stars for the club's Premier League opener against Leicester City on August 10. Mourinho said of Sanchez. 'This is not our team, not our squad.

EU has a huge stake in the USA industry, where European companies produce nearly 3 million cars a year, accounting for over a quarter of production in the United States.

The steel and aluminium tariffs, however, remain in place.

Whatever progress was achieved Wednesday could provide some relief for US automakers.

Trump has also imposed tariffs on $34 billion of Chinese imports - a figure he has threatened to raise to $500 billion - in a dispute over Beijing's aggressive drive to supplant US technological dominance. General Motors slashed its outlook, and shares of Ford Motor Co. and auto parts companies have fallen.

"It's hard to predict how this trade war will develop and to what extent", Du Wanhua, deputy director of an advisory committee to the Supreme People's Court, said. The trouble is, China past year imported $12.3 billion in US soybeans, the European Union just $1.6 billion.

Trump also took to Twitter to comment on the meeting.

Republican members of Congress are telling White House economic advisers Larry Kudlow and Peter Navarro how tariffs have hurt their constituents. "You're not going to be too angry with Trump, I can tell you", the Hill cited Trump as saying.

The Journal's report says Juncker "flipped through" more than a dozen cards, which had minimal information on them, and all focused on a single issue.
