European officials struck a measured tone on Friday after the United States imposed new 10% and 25% tariffs on some European Union goods over aircraft subsidies, with a top German official warning against steps that could escalate the tensions.
As recently as Wednesday, Trump singled out the Europeans for being unfair with the United States on trade but said his door was open for talks.
"I think it will work at the end of the day", he told reporters during the IMF/World Bank annual meetings.
"This step leaves us no alternative but to follow through in due course with our own tariffs in the Boeing case, where the USA has been found in breach of WTO rules", Malmstrom said in an emailed statement on Friday in Brussels.

The US leader and European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker agreed in July a year ago to a ceasefire in the conflict and to hold trade talks that have so far led nowhere.
The Europeans advocate negotiation over conflict and expect the WTO next year will authorize the EU to retaliate against the United States in a parallel case over subsidies for Airbus' American competitor Boeing. Other EU imports, such as gouda cheese, fruit juice, jelly, meats, olive oil, seafood, wine from France, Spain, and Germany, and Scottish whisky will be hit with 25 percent tariffs. The countries that belong to the Airbus consortium - the UK, France, Germany, and Spain - will suffer more, although Italy argues it is disproportionately affected.
Responding to the introduction of the tariff, SWA chief executive Karen Betts said: "This is very bad news for our industry".
