@MalmstromEU: Day of meetings in Brussels with Minister @SekoHiroshige and @USTradeRep Lighthizer. I had a frank discussion with the US side about the serious pending issue of steel/aluminium tariffs.

No immediate clarity on the exact US procedure for exemption however, so discussions will continue next week.

"You can't stop globalization," says @MalmstromEU, criticizing the impulse to protect domestic industry with things like steel tariffs. She suggests education, retraining instead to be prepared for "jobs we can't even imagine today."
"We are counting on being excluded" from SteelTariffs, says @MalmstromEU at Brussels forum, as it's not quite clear what @realDonaldTrump meant in his announcement. If not, she says, EU will go to WTO and introduce "rebalancing" measures, ie the peanut-butter tax
