Trump said Monday he would be meeting with European Union officials soon to discuss the dispute.

Trump thanked Rutte and the two shook hands.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau predicted "robust discussions" on trade. He started to talk about why this is a good thing. "They have been treating us very badly for many, many years and that's why we were at a big disadvantage with the WTO".

In a paper released this week, the European Commission said Trump's tariffs would be "self-defeating and would weaken the United States economy". They want to see if they can work something out, and that'll be good.

"If we do work it out, that will be positive", Trump said. Rutte again interrupted and said, "It's not positive". "We have a very close relationship".

Owned by Sazerac, the Barton 1792 Distillery in Bardstown, Kentucky contained 18,000 barrels of bourbon and other spirits. According to its website, the Barton 1792 Distillery had 29 barrel aging warehouses on its property before the accident.

The Prime Minister began by welcoming the closeness and warmth of our relationship with the Netherlands, and the importance of our trading relationship and close cooperation on matters of internal security and foreign policy.

Mr Trump has requested his Commerce Department study whether to impose additional tariffs on cars, trucks and auto parts imported from Europe and other foreign markets, prompting a warning from the European Union that such an action could lead to retaliation on United States goods.

In May, Trump commissioned an investigation by the Commerce Department into the state of automobile imports into the US, prompting European Union leaders to send Trump an 11-page document last Friday (June 29) threatening to levy taxes on $290 billion in USA goods.

Trump and Rutte will both be attending next week's North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meetings. But anyway, Prime Minister Rutte shouted, "No!"
