Trump, Swedish PM clash over looming metals tariffs

At a press conference with Swedish Prime Minister Kjell Stefan Löfven, Trump took a question about what both countries could do to ensure election integrity in 2018.

"One of the things were learning is it is always good - its old-fashioned, but its always good to have a paper backup system of voting".

"It's tough", the president said at a joint session with Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven.

"And yet they send their cars and everything else back into the United States", he said.

"I've watched where the reporters have been writing 2 per cent of our steel comes from China".

Trump said "there will be people - I'm not going to be specific - that change", but that he wouldn't have any trouble replacing staffers.

The indictment prompted a wave of partisan finger-pointing, as Republicans accused former President Barack Obama's administration of having been too soft on Russian Federation, while Democrats excoriated President Donald Trump's administration for not taking decisive steps to punish or repudiate Moscow's efforts to interfere in an American election. "No, because we'll counter act whatever they do". "The European Union has not treated us well, and it's been a very, very unfair trade situation".

"Clearly what we have done hasn't been enough", Rogers said.

"We havent been giving credit for this, but weve actually been working very hard on the 18 election and the 20 election coming up", he said. But, wait for it, "probably there was meddling from other countries, and maybe other individuals".

"One has to be really watching very closely".

"You don't want your system of votes to be compromised in any way", Trump said. "We won't allow that to happen", Trump said.

"I think they're honest also because of the sanctions and what we're doing with respect to North Korea", Trump said.

Congress and the White House have been at odds over the presidential administration's refusal so far to implement additional sanctions against Russian officials and entities. "They can do more but I think they've done more than they've ever done for our country before", Trump said.

But the big thing would be the tax cut and the regulations cuts, he added.

"These are the same people that said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction", the statement said.

"The European Union has been particularly tough on the United States, they make it nearly impossible for us to do business with them and yet they send their cars and everything else back into the United States", Trump said. The European Union has vowed to take reciprocal action, and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker discussed the matter with Löfven before he arrived in Washington, according to Swedish news agencies. Some of our agencies are also cooperating with American counterparts, and will continue to do. "We'll soon find out".
