      US slides in trade war with EU over Trump-era tariffs

      The administration of US president Joe Biden faces a major challenge over a trade tariffs dispute with EU amid upcoming 1 June deadline, Reuters reported. The row was started by Biden’s predecessor Donald Trump in a move to protect jobs in US steel industry.
