Trump Administration Mulls New EU Trade Probe as Auto Tariff Window Closes-Politico

The New York Times Finance 2 weeks ago

WASHINGTON — Trump administration officials are considering whether to start a new trade investigation against the European Union as a way to justify imposing tariffs as the window for auto-related tariffs under a prior probe closes, Politico reported on Thursday, citing unnamed people briefed on the issue.

A deadline for imposing tariffs on automobiles due to national security concerns under a prior so-called "Section 232" investigation passed last week. Politico, citing the unnamed sources, said a new investigation could subject the EU to a broader inquiry and pave the way for import duties not tied to national security concerns.
