Mark Rutte meets with Donald Trump (CNN/screen grab)
During a pool spray with Rutte in the Oval Office, Trump said that he hoped he could “work something out” with EU leaders to prevent the tariffs his administration has vowed to levy.

“If we do work it out, that will be positive,” Trump said. “And if we don’t, it will be positive also.”
