Trump says he hopes to strike fair deal with Europe

Vastavam web: U.S. President Donald Trump said on Wednesday he hopes to work out a fair and reciprocal trade deal between the United States and Europe as he welcomed the head of the European Commission to the White House for talks. “We just want it to be a level playing field for our farmers, for our manufacturers, for everybody,” Trump told reporters at the White House. “And we also want a big beneficiary, frankly, to be the European Union.”

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker told reporters as he sat down with Trump that Europe and the United States needed to work together. “We are close partners, allies – not enemies. We have to work together,” Juncker said, adding: “I think that we have to talk each to another, not at another.”
