WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Trump administration has threatened to impose a 25% tariff on European automobile imports if Britain, France and Germany do not formally accuse Iran of breaking the 2015 nuclear deal, the Washington Post reported on Wednesday, citing unnamed European officials.

The three European countries triggered a dispute mechanism under the agreement on Tuesday, amounting to a formal accusation against Tehran of violating its terms and could lead to the reinstatement of United Nations sanctions lifted under the accord.

Iran has criticized that move, calling it a “strategic mistake.”

Though Trump has previously made threats to place such a duty on European automobile imports, the intent behind them was to receive better terms for Washington within the U.S.-European trade relationship, not to shift European foreign policy, according to the Post.

Except Trump broke the deal with Iran and wants to blame Iran.  He's blackmailing other countries into blaming Iran too.   Blackmail is an abuse of power.

Nope...Trump demands that the EU doesn't act like a fool like you do.

 

Iran NEVER abided by the O-bomb-a deal.
