 European markets are trading lower with a focus on trade tensions

 Definitions are an important part of Trump's strategy

The import tariffs are an important part of US President Donald Trump's policy and strategy, White House director of trade and manufacturing policy Peter Navarro told CNN on Tuesday. Navarro went on to defend Trump's use of the induction threat to make Mexico agree to limit the flow of migrants from crossing its territory, saying the president's position in the negotiations was "entirely appropriate." Tariffs have been used many times in US history, making the country "great," he said.

Turning to China, Navarro said the two countries would either agree to a trade deal or the United States would impose more tariffs on Chinese imports. He also denied that US consumers pay fees, saying that China bears the costs because it has to devalue its currency to remain competitive in the US market.
