Outside the Box: How the Trump-Juncker meeting could lead to a trade-war truce

President Donald J. Trump will meet European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and European Union Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmström at the White House in Washington on Wednesday to discuss the future of transatlantic trade in light of the dramatic deterioration in the transatlantic relationship.

The official EU line ahead of the White House talks: “There are no offers. This is a discussion, it is a dialogue and it is an opportunity to talk.” This is wise given that current economic as well as domestic political realities embolden Trump’s trade strategy and don’t incentivize him to offer the EU a mutually beneficial deal.
