Trump Lambasted EU for Trade Policies

  • If a diplomatic source is to be believed, the US president Donald Trump in his bilateral meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron, vented and ranted on the issue of trade. In the Monday meeting, the European Union was severely criticized by Trump for their trade policies. Trump even remarked they are worse than the Chinese ones. He echoed a similar sentiment in his meeting with Macron in April as well.

    Sources claim that in the recent meeting, Macron supported some of his ideas but also tried to move the dialogue further. Trump has been emphasizing on the issue of opening up of EU on agriculture since long.
