President Donald Trump is expected to put off for another six months a decision on whether to slap tariffs up to 25% on European auto imports, Politico reported Monday . The deadline for a decision is Wednesday, and it has already been postponed once before, in May. Earlier this year, Trump instructed the U.S. Trade Representative to negotiate agreements with the European Union and Japan to address a national-security threat "causing harm to the American automobile industry." The U.S. signed a limited trade deal with Japan in September, likely eliminating the threat of tariffs on Japanese autos. But there has been no deal with the EU so far.
