The US president reportedly criticized Germany for selling millions of cars to the United States and threatened to stop the trade.

The growth of German exports has caused a great concern in the United States. In February, US President Donald Trump's economic adviser Peter Navarro accused Berlin of using what he said was a grossly undervalued euro to the disadvantage the US economy, while German Chancellor Angela Merkel denied the accusation, saying her administration had no influence on the European Central Bank’s monetary policy.
