US import tariffs of 25 percent on steel and 10 percent on aluminum imposed in March will stay in place during the talks, and Trump said Europe had agreed to raise purchases of liquefied natural gas and lower trade barriers to American soybeans.

The EU, China, and Canada have hit billions of USA goods with tariffs in response, causing the White House on Tuesday to propose $12 billion in emergency aid to farmers hurt by such retaliatory measures.
"The word that we got from staff was, as it was coming together, [Trump] was saying, 'OK, what's the next meeting?' And they said, 'Mr". No weakness!' Trump wrote in the first of a pair of tweets Wednesday morning.

European governments and EU officials hailed the Trump-Juncker agreement as a major success.
