EU leaders brace for ‘defending’ against Trump’s trade war threats

RT – April 29, 2018

Be it warm hugs in Washington or unity over Syrian strikes, it all fades when money talks, and the leaders of Germany, France and Britain say they will “defend” against any US unilateral trade measures against the EU.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron and UK Prime Minister Theresa May had a joint phone call on Saturday and mulled potential retaliatory measures against Washington’s protectionist practices.

They agreed that the United States should take no trade measures against the European Union or else the European Union should be ready to defend its interests within the framework of the multilateral trade order,” a German government spokesman said in a statement.
