0

President Donald Trump has said he will strongly consider imposing tariffs on European car imports if the US and European Union cannot strike a trade agreement.

But Mr Trump said Tuesday as he met with Pakistan’s leader Imran Khan in Davos, Switzerland, that he expects to reach a deal with Europe.

He met earlier with Ursula von der Leyen, the new president of the European Commission.

Mr Trump said they had a “very good talk”.

He did not say if they discussed the US car tariff threat.
