Tariff Tensions Remain as President Trump Expected to Meet with President of the European Union

International trade tensions are still brewing Wednesday morning.

President Trump is expected to meet with the president of the European Union Wednesday, another group he calls a “trade foe.”

The meeting comes one day after the White House announced emergency aid for farmers affected by back-and-forth tariffs with China.

Tensions started to rise in June when the president slapped hefty tariffs on Chinese goods.

He says the U.S. is being treated unfairly in the international marketplace and claims China is stealing American technology and trade secrets.

China fired back with tariffs on American products including many crops.

On Tuesday, the U.S. Department of Agriculture unveiled a $12 billion aid package, which includes direct payments to farmers.
