President Donald Trump says he's not anxious about Russian Federation meddling in the 2018 midterm elections.
"Certainly there was meddling and probably there was meddling from other countries and maybe other individuals", he said at a news conference with Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven at the White House. "We're doing a very, very deep study and we're coming out with I think some very strong suggestions on the '18 election".
"The European Union has been particularly tough on the United States, they make it nearly impossible for us to do business with them and yet they send their cars and everything else back into the United States", Trump said.

But Trump did hint that he was open to negotiating if the European Union removed some of its "horrible barriers", though he didn't mention specifics.

President Donald Trump on Tuesday refuted widespread rumors of internal White House chaos, saying he likes "conflict" and listening to opposing viewpoints.

The comments come less than a week after Trump announced that the U.S. will impose new tariffs, which function as a tax on imports, on steel and aluminum and make no exception for close allies such as Canada and the EU.
"(China) can do more but I think they've done more than they've ever done for our country before", he said. "And we can't lose our aluminum industry, also a fraction of what it once was".
"Me", he joked before adding that no one in the room got his joke.
