After President Trump's decision to impose a 25 percent tariff on steel and a 10 percent tariff on aluminum imported from the E.U., Merkel warned the E.U. would be following Canada’s lead, moving forward with countermeasures against the U.S.
“We won’t allow ourselves be ripped off again and again. We will act too,” Merkel said.
She also showed no signs of letting up—even if Trump retaliated by imposing tariffs on cars.
