U.S imposes tarrifs on European Union goods.

The United States has today imposed tariffs worth 7.5-billion dollars on European Union goods, despite threats of retaliation, with Airbus, French wine and Scottish whiskies among the high-profile targets

This comes after talks between European officials and US trade representatives failed to win a last-minute reprieve.

Speaking in Washington hours before the tariffs were due to come into effect, France’s Economy Minister Bruno Le Maire warned the move would have serious repercussions.

Reports has it that the tariffs is also targeted to consumer products such as French wine, which U.S president, Donald Trump had vowed to attack in recent months.
