(NBC News) President Donald Trump is doubling down on his promise to place tariffs on steel and aluminum, raising fears of a trade war.

Speaking during in the joint news conference with the Swedish prime minister Tuesday, Mr. Trump was defiant, despite warnings that the European Union may retaliate.

"They can do whatever they like, but if they do that, then we put a big tax of 25 percent on their cars, and believe me they won't be doing it very long," President Trump said.

The president was also asked about Russian election meddling that has targeted not only the U.S., but Sweden and other European nations, but President Trump said he is not worried about future interference.
