USA-EU. Trump: "Impossible to negotiate, soon customs duties"
The president returns to the B-737 MAX grounding: "I hope it's short"
After the European Parliament rejected today a measure for open new discussions between the European Union (EU) and the United States for a trade agreement, US President Donald Trump threatened to be ready to impose customs duties on European countries due to the difficulty in dealing with them. Today's vote, however, has only an advisory value for the European Commission, but nevertheless according to Trump it is to be considered as a "setback" to the United States. The president himself wrote on "Twitter" that negotiations will soon begin with the United Kingdom to find a trade agreement in view of Brexit, while the one with China would be in a stalemate due to some divergences so much so that the visit previsa by the end of March of Xi Jinping has been postponed.
Trump is also back on his decision to force the FAA to ground the Boeing B-737 MAX (see AVIONEWS) stating that he hopes that the stop is as short as possible.
