President Joe Biden has vowed to mend The United States' trade relations with its European allies, after they were stretched to breaking point by former President Donald Trump. Yet when he meets with European Union leaders in Brussels Tuesday, Biden may find that making up is hard to do. Trump's 2018 decision to impose import taxes on foreign steel and aluminum – a decision that left European leaders furious and triggered retaliatory steps against the U.S. When asked about the tariffs Sunday, Biden pleaded for patience, saying, "A hundred and twenty days. Give me a break. Need time." Biden used his first NATO summit since taking office Monday to warn of Russia and of China's growing power. Speaking in Brussels, Biden said: "Russia and China are both seeking to drive a wedge in our transatlantic solidarity," but added the NATO Treaty is "rock solid and unshakeable."
