"We'll spare no effort, be it at the technical or political level, to prevent this from happening", a spokesman for the Commission told reporters, adding that Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker's trip to Washington later this month would seek to stop any new USA tariffs.
The commission said global retaliation against USA tariffs on auto imports would have a bigger impact on the United States economy than those provoked by the Trump administration's steel and aluminium tariffs. The EU, Mexico, Canada, Turkey and India introduced duties on US products in return.
According to the organization, half of all USA manufacturing jobs depend on exports, and 1 in 3 acres on US farms produce crops for the global market. Their shipments will now be subject to a 25 percent tariff, which will instantly make their crops far costlier in China.
Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte interrupted Donald Trump on Monday, saying "No" when the United States president claimed that failing to reach a deal on European Union trade would be "positive". Specifically, Texas could see $3.9 billion worth of exports targeted, Tennessee could see $1.4 billion targeted, and SC could see $3 billion targeted.
In a letter to USA authorities, the European Commission, which handles trade policy for the bloc's 28 members, painted a stark picture of what the United States economy would face if Trump followed through on his threat.

Brazil would meet Germany in the round of 16, and then potentially play the winners of Group G in the quarterfinals. However, Eden Hazard and Dries Mertens, struggling with calf and ankle problems respectively, did participate.
In the European Commission's written response to the Trump administration's investigations into vehicle and auto part imports, it warns that the effect on US exports could be huge, with 19 per cent of USA exports hit.
"European cars do not threaten or impair the health of the US industry and economy", Schinas said. "They treat us very unfairly", Trump said qualifying his remarks. It calculated that a 25% tariff would slash an initial $13-14 billion off USA gross domestic product, with no predicted improvements to its own incomes. He noted that European carmakers create over half a million jobs in the U.S.
The Trump administration is also identifying an additional $200 billion in Chinese goods for 10 percent tariffs, which could take effect if Beijing retaliates.
In its submission, the European Union argues that trade restrictions would likely to lead to higher costs for usa -based producers, and in effect become a tax on American consumers.
CHINA TARIFFS: The U.S. will start imposing a 25 percent tariff on $34 billion worth of Chinese imports on Friday. "So if there's countries out there that want to do that, I'm sure he'd be happy to sit down and make that happen right now and move this process forward a whole lot quicker".
