US President Donald Trump sayd 'US, EU love each other'

United States President Donald Trump has shared a picture of him with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker after a joint press conference, where both joined hands to eliminate tariffs.

In the picture, Trump and Juncker can be seen sharing a hug, meanwhile, president of the European Commission kissing the US President's cheek.

"Obviously the European Union, as represented by @JunckerEU and the United States, as represented by yours truly, love each other!" Trump captioned the photo.


Trump shared the photo shortly after the two leaders delivered a joint statement on Wednesday, announcing that they have reached a deal to begin resolving a dispute over tariffs and avoid a trade war.

President Trump called the meeting a 'very big day for free and fair trade'.
The meeting turned out to be fruitful since the elimination of tariffs would reduce the growing tension between EU and the USA.

In another tweet, the US President said, "European Union representatives told me that they would start buying soybeans from our great farmers immediately. Also, they will be buying vast amounts of LNG!"

Earlier this year, the Trump administration slapped tariffs on steel and aluminium imports from several U.S. allies, including the EU.

Trump also threatened to impose a 20 per cent tariff on all European automobile imports.
