The European Union has vowed to stand up to protectionist "bullies" as Donald Trump prepares to impose trade tariffs on many metal products.

At a news conference on Monday morning, the EU's trade commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom suggested contact with the US was likely to be maintained during the week, but insisted the prospect of tariffs was unacceptable.
The European Commission said it expected to be in contact with the United States over steel and aluminium tariffs this week, but added that no formal talks were scheduled.
