Löfven tells Trump tariffs "will hurt us all"

2:41 min

In a meeting with US President Donald Trump, Prime Minister Stefan Löfven underscored how possible steel and aluminum tariffs could damage economic growth for both countries.

Last week Trump said he would institute 25 percent import duties on foreign steel and 10 percent on aluminum. Löfven made it clear that Sweden, and the rest of the EU, opposed his plan.

In addition to trade, the pair discussed security cooperation and bilateral ties.
