President Trumps threat to impose tariffs on imported cars is working, sending foreign leaders from Mexico to Japan racing to the negotiating table to make deals.
But their offers may not satisfy a president who has shown a willingness to embrace trade tensions in an effort to extract more from American trading partners.
The European Union on Thursday made one of the most significant concessions, saying it would cut its existing penalties on automobiles to zero, provided the United States dropped its own tariffs. Although the president has called for something similar, Mr. Trump said he wanted Europe to go even further.

I have been repeating again and again, that the country with TRADE deficits has all the cards in a trade war. All it takes is courage and fortitude and perseverance to see it through conclusion. Playing nice as all previous presidents have done (Reagan through Obama) will never work, because countries with trade surpluses will not give up their benefits easily.

Its not good enough, Mr. Trump said in an interview with Bloomberg News. Their consumer habits are to buy their cars, not to buy our cars.
Zero on automobile tariffs from and to Europe and USA in matching numbers, and 25 percent tariff on European imports above what we export to them. Come up with a fixed number based on sales last year. That would be fair. Since they buy few American cars, well, they can suck it up and be charged 25 percent on exports to us. Sounds fair to me.

Naturally the article never gets around to mentioning the tariff that Europe currently imposes on US cars. It’s 10 percent, versus our 2.5 percent on their cars.
