President Donald Trump met with executives from three top German carmakers at the White House Tuesday as all sides hope to avoid a European trade war.
The White House says Trump "shared his vision of all automakers producing in the United States and creating a more friendly business environment."
The statement gave no other details on the talks with executives from BMW, Daimler and Volkswagen.
But in an earlier tweet, Trump called himself "a tariff man."
....I am a Tariff Man. When people or countries come in to raid the great wealth of our Nation, I want them to pay for the privilege of doing so. It will always be the best way to max out our economic power. We are right now taking in $billions in Tariffs. MAKE AMERICA RICH AGAIN— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 4, 2018
