Donald Trump hints at tariffs on European car imports without trade deal


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.
