Trade war with the United States: a positive outcome for Europe?

How Trump’s tariffs are much bigger than Trump

The underlying problem with Donald Trump's tariffs on steel and aluminum isn't Trump. It's the increasing willingness by the U.S. to impose its will on its neighbours amid rising economic nationalism.
