The Head of State therefore hoped to wrest exemptions for European industrialists, in particular for those who manufacture electric vehicles.

Europe and all our allies have the opportunity to do the same,” he said. -he.

The American president barely acknowledges that he cannot make adjustments but that it requires discussion. In other words, the interview in the Oval Office will not have been enough.
