Trump’s decision on tariffs closed doors to other talks – Macron

Trump’s decision on tariffs closed doors to other talks – Macron
France’s President Emmanuel Macron slammed the US move to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada, Mexico and the European Union, calling the decision “unlawful” and a “mistake.”

The decision on tariffs made by the US President Donald Trump closed doors to the talks with Washington on other issues, Macron said as cited by Reuters.

“This decision is not only unlawful but it is a mistake in many respects,” Macron said. “Economic nationalism leads to war.”

The French president also announced telephone talks with his US counterpart, expected to take place later on Thursday.

The US president’s decision to scrap the landmark 2015 nuclear deal with Iran and today’s move to finally impose the tariffs on Europe, have definitely soured the “bromance” between him and Macron, which blossomed only a month ago. The French president earlier vowed to maintain the relationship with Iran and protect European companies from any hostile moves on part of the US.
