Angela Merkel Switches to "Bad Cop" Mode With Trump Amid Trade Row

As the trade dispute between the EU and US over the metal tariffs continues to heat up, the German Chancellor has voiced her discontent over US-based internet commerce giants and promised to take the dispute to a whole new level. Some interpreted her words as a threat of anti-monopoly probes against them.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has alluded to an “exchange” of restrictions with the US and stressed the importance of the auto industry for the European Union, prompting the US President to repeat his dissatisfaction.

"We should think about the strategic significance of the auto industry for the European Union so we can prepare an exchange with the US," Merkel said at an event marking the 70th Anniversary of Germany's post-war establishment of the 'Social Market Economy'.
