Euro-Atlantic solidarity is deeply cracked, RISS expert Vyacheslav Kholodkov said. Trade negotiations between the European Union and the United States have failed to yield tangible results. Washington wants to include agricultural products and GMOs in future US-EU trade deal. Europe opposes this idea. At the same time, D.Trump proposed to introduce additional duties on European goods, as France has passed tax on US tech giants. The European Union subsidies to Airbus are also being discussed. European automakers are also under threat: Trump's decision to put a 25% tariff on every car from the European Union is expected," RISS expert said.

US-China trade conflict escalates to currency war, RISS expert Vyacheslav Kholodkov said. Trump labeled China a currency manipulator and accused it of taking concrete steps to devalue its currency. "Trump made this statement after the Treasury Department put China on the currency blacklist. This statement could pave the way for more US sanctions. For example, the US can cut lending to trading firms that have business ties with Beijing," he underscored. Trump also intends to file a complaint against China at the IMF. In expert's opinion, such a threat was Washington's attempt to create an international coalition to put pressure on China.
