Rutte points out Trump on world trade benefits
- On his visit to President Trump, Prime Minister Rutte will make it clear to him that free trade leads to a bigger cake, to prosperity growth, also for the United States. \u0026 # X27; \u0026 # x27; The two meet each other on July 2 in the White House.
There they talk about, among other things, the trade relationship between the Netherlands and the US. Rutte said he would not come to Washington with a message on behalf of the EU, but he would realize that he is also a European government leader. Rutte is the first EU leader to visit Tump since the US imposed import duties on steel and aluminum, including from the EU. The EU then took countermeasures.
The talks between Brussels and Washington are currently stalled. The leaders view whether they should be resumed in order to prevent 'a spiral of trade barriers', according to German Chancellor Angela Merkel. According to EU President Donald Tusk, the union must prepare for worst-case scenarios.
