European Union tariffs on United States goods come into force

China and US trade talks

Trump and Peter Navarro, one of his top trade advisers, have long believed that the European Union has an unfair tariff on US exports while the USA government makes it relatively easy for other countries to send their cars here.

Cecilia Malmstrom, the EU's trade commissioner, acknowledged that the European Union had targeted some iconic American imports for tariffs, like Harley-Davidson motorcycles and bourbon, to "make noise" and put pressure on US leaders.

The threat comes after Trump directed the Commerce Department to launch an investigation into whether imports of foreign autos were a risk to USA national security and should be subject to tariffs or other trade restrictions.

Case in point: Daimler AG late Wednesday slashed its earnings outlook for the year, saying fewer Chinese consumers will buy Mercedes-Benz SUVs because of tariffs Beijing is slapping on autos imported from the US.

The E.U.'s tariffs are not the first retaliation in the escalating global trade war started by the Trump administration: Mexico and China have already launched retaliatory tariffs of their own, while Canada and Japan are soon likely to follow suit.

Cranberries, cranberry juice, orange juice, sweetcorn and peanut butter are among the other food products targeted.

On Thursday, Indian imposed tariffs on 29 United States goods worth $ 238 million as a countermeasure. "The United States decision to impose targets on Europe goes against that, in fact it goes against all logic and history", European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said on Thursday.

The spat comes amid a wider push by President Trump's administration to hit other countries with tariffs that would reduce the USA trade deficit. President Trump imposed tariffs of 25 percent on steel imports and 10 percent on imported aluminum from the European Union on June 1.

Canada has announced that it will impose retaliatory tariffs on C$16.6 billion (S$17 billion) worth of United States exports from July 1.

Japanese vehicle makers accounted for 92,000 jobs in the US, according to the Japanese Auto Manufacturers Association's annual report. But, he said, the move could hurt India's economic growth as the country diversifies its exports, as well as prompt India "to re-look at US relations as undependable".

England's Harry Kane wants to be 'best in the world'
With Alli, Sterling and Lingard playing in advanced roles behind Kane, the responsibility lies with them to step up to the plate. At the highest level, success and failure can often be down to one player rising above the rest to produce the decisive moment.

The move is a response to new USA tariffs imposed on European Union steel and aluminium by President Donald Trump.

The biggest exporters of cars to the USA are Canada and Mexico, followed by Japan and Germany.

The tariffs were apparently targeting China as the administration continued to push the emerging powerhouse to reduce its excess capacity - and exports - in these metals, a situation that Trump claims undermines American industry and jobs.

Another one of Trump's Friday morning tweets was directed at Mexico, and he took on a much friendlier tone than usual when discussing the NAFTA partner's trade and immigration policies.
