It can not be suppressed as a serious issue, such as 25% of the import duties on EU cars, is learned by the largest trading partner of the United States through a meeting of the US President with its supporters in West Virginia. Opposition SaS reacts to the current statement by US President Donald Trump.
"We do not consider such a way of communicating and we will not consider ourselves as allies and friends," said Martin Klus (SaS), a member of the National Council (NR) of the Slovak Republic.
According to him, the introduction of tariffs will be especially problematic for Volkswagen in Bratislava, which exports every fifth car to the US and in the near future also the Jaguar Land Rover. "Moreover, it is worth noting that the ratio of car exports to the US to Slovakia's GDP is significantly higher than that of any EU country, and will therefore have a negative impact on the Slovak economy," added Klus.
"We're introducing 25 percent tax on every car coming to the US from the European Union," Trump said without further details during a meeting with his supporters in West Virginia.
