One day ahead of deadline, Trump says he’ll decide on auto tariffs ‘soon’

U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday said he would make a decision soon on whether to impose tariffs on cars and auto parts imported into the United States but gave no other details.

“I’ll make a decision soon, fairly soon,” he told reporters at the White House, one day ahead of a deadline to act.

The Republican president is weighing whether to impose the levy on vehicles and parts imported from the European Union, Japan and South Korea, although EU officials said they expect Trump to announce a delay this week.
