BERLIN — A senior European Union official is warning that the 28-nation bloc will hit again if U.S. President Donald Trump takes commerce measures towards it.
EU price range commissioner Guenther Oettinger advised Sunday’s version of Germany’s Welt am Sonntag newspaper: “If European exporters must pay tariffs, that can turn out to be a two-way road. Then U.S. exporters should pay tariffs right here.”
Trump expressed his annoyance with EU commerce coverage every week in the past, saying that it “could morph into one thing very large.” The EU then mentioned it stands able to hit again “swiftly and appropriately” if Trump imposes unfair commerce measures.
Oettinger mentioned: “Anybody who makes use of the instrument should know that we even have it. And the European market is not less than as large because the American one.”
