Indian Tariff Hike Unacceptable: Trump

Osaka (Japan): US President Donald Trump on Thursday dubbed as “unacceptable” the tariffs hiked by India on American products and demanded that they be withdrawn.

“I look forward to speaking with Prime Minister (Narendra) Modi about the fact that India, for years having put very high tariffs against the US, just recently increased the tariffs even further,” the President tweeted ahead of the G20 Summit here.

“This is unacceptable and the tariffs must be withdrawn,” he said.
