Trump and top European leader agree to work toward zero tariffs

(CNN) — President Donald Trump said Wednesday that he and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker agreed to work toward eliminating tariffs and barriers on trade, reducing tensions for now in a brewing trade war.

Trump said both sides agreed to halt for now tariffs that threatened to devolve into a trade war as negotiations proceed.

“This was a very big day for free and fair trade,” the President said.
