Merkel says the EU is now ready to talk trade tariffs with Trump — but with some caveats

"We have a common position. We want a permanent exemption and then we are ready to talk how we can reciprocally reduce the barriers to trade," Merkel said, according to Reuters, as she arrived at a summit of EU leaders in Sofia, Bulgaria Thursday.

Trump imposed import duties of 25 percent on steel and 10 percent on aluminum but granted EU producers a temporary exemption until June 1.
