US President Donald Trump on Monday threatened the European Union with new tariffs if it did not end subsidies to Airbus, at the risk of reviving a fragile trade truce.
Should they materialize, the new tariffs will be in retaliation for what the U.S. has long claimed are illegal subsidies to Airbus and cap a 14-year fight between Boeing and its European rival at the World Trade Organization. It will soon stop!'
Officials from the European Union have provisionally agreed to opening formal trade talks with the United States in a bid to cool an escalating spat between two of the world's largest economies. The EU has left most of its subsidies unchanged and launched additional aid since the challenge, USTR said.
And now, the US Trade Representative (USTR) has begun its process, under Section 301 of the Trade Act of 1974, to identify European Union products to which additional duties may be applied until the European Union removes those Airbus subsidies.
While the magnitude of the tariffs is small compared with the countless centuries that the USA and China are taxing inside their own trade warfare, it indicates a breakdown in talks with the European Union above transaction.
Robert Lighthizer, the US trade representative, recalled the day before in a statement that the case has been in litigation for 14 years and it is time to act on it.
These tariffs would be levied on selected goods imported from any of the 28 EU member states and would be in addition to the existing levies on European products.

The EU responded with tariffs on about 2.8 billion euros' worth ($3.4 billion) of USA steel, agricultural and other products, from Harley Davidson bikes to orange juice. These products range from large commercial aircraft to dairy products and wine and are being targeted in retaliation for European subsidies to Airbus.
A joint EU/US statement in July referred to a goal of removing tariffs on "non-auto industrial goods".
The EU responded Tuesday to the U.S.'s latest call for new tariffs by noting that it was based on America's own estimate, not anything it had been awarded by the WTO.
Eric Schweitzer, the mind of the Association of German Chambers of Industry and Commerce, lamented the transaction tensions. However, it signaled it was open for talks with the US, provided these were without preconditions and aimed to achieve a fair outcome.
Whether the US gets the legal right to implement the new tariffs will depend on a ruling by the WTO, an organization based in Geneva that sets the rules for global commerce and settles disputes.
