Biden looks to ease EU trade tensions ahead of Putin summit
BRUSSELS (AP) — President Joe Biden turns his attention to the European Union on Tuesday when he meets with European Council President Charles Michel and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen.
The president has sought to gather support for a more unified approach to Russia prior to his Wednesday summit with President Vladimir Putin.
But the U.S.-EU relationship is not without tension.
Biden will meet with European Union officials at a moment when the continent’s leaders are becoming impatient that the American president has not yet addressed his predecessor Donald Trump’s 2018 decision to impose import taxes on foreign steel and aluminum.
