On Tuesday night, Trump issued a tweet proposing that both the US and the European Union drop all three as European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker prepares to visit Washington for trade talks on Wednesday.
"We agreed today, first of all, to work together toward zero tariffs, zero nontariff barriers and zero subsidies on non-auto industrial goods", he said at an unscheduled appearance with Juncker after their White House meeting.
The U.S. and European Union will "hold off on other tariffs"' while negotiations proceed, as well as re-examine U.S. steel and aluminum tariffs and retaliatory duties imposed by the EU "in due course", Juncker said. Mr Trump had threatened to impose 25% tariffs on European auto imports.
"This was a very big day for free and fair trade, a very big day indeed", Trump told reporters at the White House after meeting with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker.
During their Oval Office meeting, Mr. Trump said he expects something "very positive to take place" during their discussions, but was adamant that a "level playing field" is needed for USA farmers and manufacturers.
Thus far, Trump's administration has already enacted sweeping tariffs on USA imports of steel, aluminum, washing machines, and solar-energy equipment while targeting China specifically with tariffs on an additional $34 billion worth of goods. "Keeping in mind that the USA and the European Union continue to share intellectual property grievances against China at the [World Trade Organisation]".
On a call explaining the assistance, the administration said the $12 billion value of the package was in line with the estimated $11 billion hit to farmers from recent trade tensions.
Aaron Putze, director of communications for the Iowa Soybean Association, said the deal offered some positivity, but continued to call for progress on resolving the trade dispute with China. Sens. Doug Jones, D-Ala., and Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., on Wednesday introduced legislation that would delay Trump's planned auto tariffs. Kevin McNew, an economist at Farmers Business Network, told Business Insider that China had bought at least 2.5 million metric tons of soybeans on forward contracts he expected to be canceled following the tariff implementation.

Juncker said the two sides also agreed to work together to reform the World Trade Organization, which Trump has vehemently criticized as being unfair to the U.S. A new WTO report showed global trade covered by measures to restrict imports reached $84.5 billion in May as compared to $79 billion in October, with 75 new actions imposed in that time period. "Both the USA and the European Union drop all Tariffs, Barriers and Subsidies!"
Mr. Trump has also accused Beijing of manipulating its yuan currency to give its exporters an edge, a charge rejected by China. She said in part, "They are having a real and costly impact on the rural economy and the ability of rural businesses to keep their doors open".
He also defended the trade measures on Twitter Wednesday morning.
