EU’s Tusk hits back at Trump saying trade wars ‘bad and easy to lose’

Luxembourg (AFP) – The EU’s top official hit back Wednesday at Donald Trump, saying “trade wars are bad and easy to lose” as the bloc prepared to retaliate against the US president’s planned steel and aluminium tariffs.

“President Trump has recently said and I quote, ‘trade wars are good and easy to win.’ But the truth is quite the opposite. Trade wars are bad and easy to lose,” European Council Donald Tusk told a press conference in Luxembourg.
