President Trump struck a deal with negotiators from the European Union, led by European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, to launch talks to increase trade, reduce tariffs and costs, and increase U.S. farm and natural gas exports to Europe. Speaking outside the White House Wednesday, the two leaders announced that they had made a deal. Together the U.S. and E.U. make up more than 50% of world GDP and "if we team up, we could do a lot of good in the world," they said.
"We're starting the negotiations now, but we pretty much where they're going," the U.S. president said, also adding that all "retaliatory" tariffs would be taken down.
"This was a good, constructive meeting, thank you, Donald," Juncker said, echoing the announcement Trump made.
"This was a very big day for free and fair trade," Trump added before leaving without taking questions.
