Trump says U.S., European Union are aiming for "zero tariffs"

Trump European Union leaders pull back from trade war

The US and the European Union have stepped back from a possible trade war, with the announcement of a proposal to ease tensions and avoid more tariffs.

On Tuesday, Trump announced $12 billion in subsidies for farmers, though Republican lawmakers criticized that plan as welfare for farmers who would be better off if the president backed away from his tariff threats to Europe and China.

Earlier on Tuesday, Nebraska Sen.

Details were not announced and the White House did not respond to questions about what, specifically, the two leaders agreed to.

"They are going to be a massive buyer of LNG", Trump said. I am concerned that this temporary fix does not address the long-term effects the agriculture industry in the United States will experience as a result of trade retaliation.

Earlier in an Oval Office photo op, Juncker said the US and European Union were "allies, not enemies", a rebuff of Trump's recent comments, in which he labeled the European Union a "foe".

U.S. stocks shot to their highs of the day, with the benchmark S&P 500 Index rising by the most in almost two months to close the day within 1 percent of an all-time high. At current prices, most farmers lose money on corn, dairy, soybeans and pigs.

Ultimately, Whiting tells OneNewsNow, it's not just agriculture that is being hit hard by tariffs. Since 2013, overall annual net farm income has decreased by 50 percent, and the USDA predicts it will drop to negative $1,300 this year.

"What will eventually come out of this, we need to see. It means that they are competitive", Trump told Glor.

The full impact of the trade dispute, according to Stanley, has yet to be fully felt by farmers - except when it comes to feed. Turning a page, agreed to facilitate trade between us, looking at zero tariffs on industrial goods, energy and regulatory cooperation.

The outcome seemed a victory for Trump, who had assured supporters that his confrontational trade strategy would bear fruit, and who appears to have conceded little in the talks with the EU. Most of the companies and business groups that have filed comments are seeking to have goods spared from duties on grounds the tariffs are ultimately a tax on consumers and hamstrings them with their global supply chains.

U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday accused China of targeting American farmers in a "vicious" way and using them as leverage to get concessions on trade.

"Tariffs are taxes that punish American consumers and producers". "Tariffs are the greatest!" It's as simple as that - and every body's talking!

"Remember, we are the "piggy bank" that's being robbed", Trump tweeted. "All will be Great!"
