Mr Trump and Mr Juncker said the talks would also seek to "resolve" USA tariffs on steel and aluminum and Europe's retaliatory duties - marking a step back from the President's signature import protections for American metals producers.
"We want it to be a level playing field for our farmers, for our manufacturers, for everybody", he said.
Juncker will suggest two paths, one of which is a deal among major auto exporting nations including the U.S., Europe, Japan and Canada to reduce tariffs on cars.

The administration's action appeared to divide Republicans, with some praising the move and others troubled by what they viewed as the kind of widespread government-assistance program their party has traditionally opposed. The U.S. and China have threatened to impose 25 percent tariffs next week on $16 billion of each other's goods. "The fact that other countries are bad at economics-and harm their own people with tariffs and other protectionist schemes-does not justify our own economic incompetence". 'If tariffs punish farmers, the answer is not welfare for farmers - the answer is remove the tariffs'. "It could be direct aid it could be through the CCC program buying up excess product sometimes the USDA will come in and they'll buy up some of the surplus products like meat products, dairy products that type of thing so it might be a combination of those type of programs", Thiesse said. "This administration's tariffs and bailouts aren't going to make America great again, they're just going to make it 1929 again".
