Trump says he won't back down on tariffs after Republican criticism

After Trump's announcement on the metal tariffs, the European Commission raised the prospect of counter-measures - leading Trump to threaten European automakers on Saturday with an import tax if the EU does retaliate.

If Juncker's threats lead to actual tariff retaliation, we are worse off than with Trump's tariffs alone.

As he met with Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Trump said: "Our country on trade has been ripped off by virtually every country in the world, whether it's friend or enemy".

The three NAFTA partners — Canada, Mexico and the U.S. — have been locked in talks aimed at possibly revamping the trade deal, but no clear framework has so far emerged.

Cousins and Keenum appear to be the No. 1 and No. 2 free agent options for the Denver Broncos, according to KUSA-TV's Mike Klis . Cousins had mentioned in an interview that he would "love it" if the Denver Broncos are interested in him, which they are.

This week, Trump is scheduled to sign an executive order that would impose a 25% tariff on import of steel and another 10% on aluminium.

Americans do not like President Donald Trump's proposed tariffs, according to a new poll.

"They have trade barriers that are worse than tariffs".

Trump, a Republican, has long bucked his party's broad support for free trade, promising both on the campaign trail and in the White House that he will seek deals that better favour American workers.

The steel tariff would be particularly harmful for the two nations because they are two of the biggest sources of steel for the US. Last year, he called German auto imports, valued at $23 billion in 2017, terrible, and chided European carmakers for failing to open manufacturing plants on U.S. territory.

Trump administration officials frequently refer to the deficit in goods alone, excluding the offset from dominant USA services exports of things like banking and insurance. A memo from White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said the president "emphasized his commitment to a NAFTA agreement that was fair to all three countries, noting the current agreement leaves the United States with a trade deficit".

President Trump himself took to Twitter to claim "trade wars are good".

"We lost $800 billion a year on trade - not gonna happen". But if it leads to President Donald Trump starting a trade war, it will cost jobs, raise prices and set back California's economy. Everybody! China, Russia and take people that we think are wonderful: "the European Union".

Trump stumps for Republican Rick Saccone in Pennsylvania
He said countries like Singapore have fewer issues with drug addiction because of how much more harshly they punish their dealers. Public polling ahead of the Tuesday election has shown Saccone neck-and-neck with Lamb, a former federal prosecutor and Marine.
