Trump Says US-EU Trade Very  Unfair, May Morph into Big Problem

LONDON- In an interview with a British TV anchor, U.S. President Donald Trump complained about what he said was very unfair trade relationship between the United States and the European Union (EU), warning trade disputes could become a big problem.
“The European Union has treated the United States very unfairly when it came to trade ... I’ve had a lot of problems with (the) European Union, and it may morph into something very big ... from a trade standpoint,” Trump said.
The president has always complained about other economies taking advantage of Washington by means of “unfair” trade practices. He repeated his stance in Davos, Switzerland, when sitting down with British journalist Piers Morgan for an interview aired on Sunday. As regards the EU market, Trump said: “We cannot get our product in. It’s very very tough,” adding products from the EU are sold to the United States with “no taxes -- very little taxes.”
Trump’s “America First” slogan was snubbed by international politicians and business leaders as they gathered in the Swiss ski resort for the annual World Economic Forum. (Xinhua)
