"Citing several unnamed U.S. and European diplomats.."

I put very little credence into unnamed sources. President Trump said he was going to bring steel production back to the US. Nobody should be surprised. Well, maybe they are surprised a politician is doing what they said they would do.

Edit: After doing a bit more reading, I found this on CNN Money

"Currently, vehicles shipped from Europe to the US face a low 2.5% tariff. Meanwhile, cars built in America face a 10% tariff when they're shipped to the European Union."

Why is the US paying 4 times as much to get US cars into Europe?

Replace the word "tariff" with the word "tax", because that's what it really is and the consumer is the one who pays for it.

I enjoy driving my high performance cars. I particularly like to drive mountain roads and back country lanes. . I don’t care for politics from the left or right. So in order to flee the “noise” I jump in my Audi S5 , place the control in Dynamic Sport and escape to my personal world. I’m not going to change the politics but I sure can make my world a better place.

That's one thing I have enjoyed on this forum. Virtually no political talk. I come here to for ideas, information, and to see what others have done with their cars - which is part of the escape from the 24/7 always opinionated (from either side) 'news'.
