Trump demands India scrap ‘unacceptable’ tariffs just after Pompeo charm offensive

US President Donald Trump criticized India’s retaliatory tariffs against US goods, potentially undermining whatever progress was made in trade talks by his secretary of state during a recent visit to India.

Trump called the tariff bump – which targets 30 American products, including almonds, walnuts, apples, large motorcycles, and some metal and chemical products – “unacceptable,” and demanded its withdrawal, complaining that India has been treating the US unfavorably “for years.” He apparently intends to discuss the issue with Indian PM Narendra Modi during the upcoming G20 economic summit in Japan.
