How Boeing vs. Airbus Became Trump vs. Europe

The Office of the United States Trade Representative stated it planned to begin by levying a 10 percent tariff on European aircraft and a 25 percent tariff on farming goods, including French white wine and Spanish olive oil. Boeing had hoped the tariffs would tax airplane parts from Europe, a relocation that would have hurt Airbus, which opened a factory in Mobile, Ala., in 2015. Last week, a bipartisan group of 34 lawmakers sent out a letter urging Robert Lighthizer, the United States trade representative, to prevent imposing tariffs and, if he did, to excuse existing airplane orders.
