The Wall Street Journal: Kudlow says U.S. will ‘immediately’ start new trade talks with EU

WASHINGTON — A top Trump administration official said Sunday the U.S. will “immediately” start negotiating with the European Union to forge trade agreements on farm and energy products, promising “an actual transaction” right away to sell more soybeans, beef and liquid natural gas to European countries.

Larry Kudlow, President Trump’s chief economic adviser, said he would be involved in the negotiations, to be led by U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer.

“We will be starting immediately,” Kudlow said in an interview with CBS’s “Face the Nation.” “We’ll be setting up a layered process to examine all the different areas.“

Kudlow stressed that broad discussions on agriculture will be part of the bilateral talks, underscoring a gap with Brussels, which has vowed to keep the sector off the table.
