Senator David Perdue Comments On Progress In US-EU Trade Talks

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) comments on President Trump’s trade discussions with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker:

“The EU has opened the door to transition from a tariff discussion to substantive item-by-item negotiations about equal access. President Trump said job one was to grow our economy, and to do that we need to grow exports. Our trading partners are looking at the trade imbalances in a different light under President Trump. The long-term goal has never been tariffs, but equal access to other markets.”
