Trump trade tariffs: EU must reject Trump's "every man for himself" approach!

The European Parliament debates US President Trump's decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminium.

Greens/EFA co-president Ska Keller comments:

"Trump isn't just threatening trade tariffs, he wants to tear up the entire international order. Whether it is leaving the Paris Climate Agreement, threatening the Iran nuclear deal, or bypassing the WTO, he is pushing an every man for himself agenda that would cause severe pain. In the long term, everyone loses in a trade war and the EU must robustly defend multilateralism, without escalating the conflict."
