Merkel says the EU is now ready to discuss cutting trade tariffs with Trump

“Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel has signaled that the European Union is willing to discuss reducing trade tariffs with the U.S., but only if the measures are reciprocal” writes Holly Ellyatt for Merkel’s comments mark a shift in her, and Europe’s, position over trade tariffs and import duties that Trump said were necessary for “national security.”. We want a permanent exemption and then we are ready to talk how we can reciprocally reduce the barriers to trade,” Merkel said, according to Reuters, as she arrived at a summit of EU leaders in Sofia, Bulgaria Thursday.
