The tweet came as Europe imposed tariffs on goods worth 2.8 billion euros ($3.2 billion) - including Harley Davidson motorcycles and Levi's jeans - which are themselves a targeted response to Trump's earlier decision to impose steel and aluminum tariffs on European exports to the United States.

Malmström added that if the USA removes its tariffs, the European taxes would also be lifted. Increased tax burden on goods from imposed duties is also carried by the end user.

The U.S. tariffs hit some $7.5 billion of European products; the EU says that today's measures target almost half that figure, and that it plans to impose a slightly larger block of tariffs later - either in three years, or if/when the WTO rules in its favor. He charged that a succession of poorly negotiated accords - including the North American Free Trade Agreement and the pact that admitted China into the World Trade Organization - put American manufacturers at an unfair disadvantage and destroyed millions of USA factory jobs.
