“When we send Harley Davidson motorcycle, and other things to India, they charge us very very high tariffs. I have spoken to Prime Minister (Narendra) Modi and he is going to reduce them substantially,India charges tariffs of 100 percent, and then if we want to put a tariff of 25 percent on, people will call from Congress, ‘But that’s not free trade.’ And I’d look back to people and say, ‘Where do these people come from? Where do they come from?’So because of the power of tariffs and the power that we have with tariffs, we, in many cases, won’t even have to use them. That’s how powerful they are, and how good they are. But in many cases, we’re not going to have to use them.“
President Donald Trump Monday slammed India for imposing ” high tariffs” on American products and said that New Delhi wanted to have a trade deal with the US primarily to keep him happy.
