Trump accuses EU of 'cheating,' won't back down on trade

United States President Donald Trump maintained that the current tariffs on goods from the European Union should remain as the bloc "cheated" in the dispute over aircraft subsidies.

"They cheated, the EU is almost as bad as China. They take advantage of us tremendously on NATO, they don't pay their dues," Trump told Fox Business on Thursday.

Regarding China, the president reiterated he has "changed his mindset" on Beijing following the "plague." In a different interview released earlier this week, the US president said that a phase two trade deal with China was the "last thing on his mind."
