Germany sees U.S. imposing tariffs on European Union from May 1

Why does Trump ignore Europe but not Russia

The German government expressed concern on Thursday that a solution to the trade conflict unleashed by U.S. President Donald Trump remains elusive as Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) is preparing her visit to the United States. "While an announcement could be claimed in some quarters as a concession to President Donald Trump, it may ultimately end up benefiting European and Asian carmakers more than their American counterparts because of China's outstanding threat to slap an additional 25 percent import duty on U.S-made automobiles". Mr. Trump has in the past been highly critical of Ms. Merkel's immigration policy as well as Germany's relatively low defense spending and its trade surplus, which some.

The stylistic differences between the Macron and Merkel visits are "very telling" according to Mona Krewel of Cornell University.

In Washington, a White House official said the United States would press Germany about trade deficits that "pose risks to global economic stability", and "would like to remove barriers.to trade so that we can level the playing field".

Trump announced last month that the United States would impose tariffs of 25 percent on steel and 10 percent on aluminium, claiming foreign imports were harming U.S. national security by undermining the domestic production needed for military readiness.

Merkel this week stressed that, despite the differences, she wants to preserve the bedrock strategic partnership.

Despite her more sober style, she is unlikely to diverge much from Macron on substance.

Ahead of the trip, German officials said they expected USA tariffs on European steel and aluminium products to kick in on May 1, when an exemption expires.

How Guardiola turned Manchester City into convincing English Premier League champions
Their current tally of 87 points is the most by any side in English top-flight history after 33 games of a season. City have secured the title with five games to spare but Guardiola does not want his players to ease up.

Europe program Director of the Center for strategic and global studies Heather Conley told reporters that the visits of two European leaders will be held under the slogan "save the nuclear deal with Iran".

"We can talk about this thing again", said the source.

The next looming deadline is May 12, the date by which Trump has threatened to tear up the landmark 2015 agreement to stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons in return for relief from global sanctions.

Germany's BDI industry association is banking on an agreement with Trump.

The visit will take place after the meeting, trump and Makron. An announcement of a decision could be made as early as next month, the people said.

It is unclear how Mike Pompeo's confirmation as Secretary of State will tilt the debate.

He said add-ons could include issues such as Iran's ballistic missile programme and its role in the region.
