Trump, Swedish PM clash over looming metals tariffs

Trump, Swedish PM clash over looming metals tariffs

"The United States has been taken advantage of by other countries - some friendly, some not so friendly - for many many decades", Mr. Trump said at a joint press conference with Mr. Löfven.

"I think that they are honest but I think they're honest also because the sanctions and what we're doing with respect to North Korea, including the great help that we've been given from China, and they can do more, but I think they've done more than certainly they've ever done for our country before, so China has been a big help", the US President said.

"We're going to straighten it out", he said.

"Because we'll counteract whatever they do".

China sets growth target, set to end president term limit
President Xi Jinping's top economic aide, Liu He, met with USA officials at the White House this week to discuss the fraught economic relationship.

The comments come less than a week after Trump announced that the USA will impose new tariffs, which function as a tax on imports, on steel and aluminum and make no exception for close allies such as Canada and the EU.

"We'll do it in a very loving way, a loving, loving way, they'll like us better and they'll respect us much more", Trump said. "And we won't allow that to happen".

"Believe me, everybody wants to work in the White House".

But he didn't engage regarding whom he wants to see go. I think I was elected, at least partially on this issue. The people over there understand I'm right'. "And they can do whatever they like, but if they do that, then we put a big tax of 25 percent on their cars".

Neymar leaves hospital after 'successful' surgery on injured foot
This season Neymar has scored 29 goals in 30 appearances for PSG across all competitions, while he has provided 15 assists. However, he is already sure to miss two warm-up friendlies against Russian Federation and Germany in March.

"Trade wars aren't so bad", Trump insisted, adding that the tariffs will be done "in a loving, loving way". "I think it's better for the European Union and United States of America to find some way to cooperate in order to deal with the situation".

Löfven insisted that free trade is important for the European Union, but Trump appeared unwavering in his decision and said the European Union had been unfair and tough towards the US. In fact, according to the State Department, "Sweden is the 15th largest investor in the USA", not the eighth. Trump will meet with Swedish business representatives midday Tuesday before his news conference. So not only do we lose on trade, we lose on military. "And we can't lose our aluminum industry, also a fraction of what it once was".

Earlier in the day, North Korea and South Korea announced an apparent breakthrough in talks.

"If you want to stand up and protect American jobs, reconsider this policy", Walker said Tuesday, during a tour of the Bemis Industrial Products factory, which uses aluminum to manufacture ultra-thin food packaging. Only a few people in the room chuckled quietly, prompting the president to add "nobody got that".
