President Donald Trump slammed the European Union, saying "large tariffs and barriers" used against U.S. farmers and manufacturers are unfair.

His comments came in a Monday morning tweet.

On Saturday, Trump called on the EU to "drop their horrific barriers and tariffs on U.S. products" if those nations did not want to see new duties on their steel and aluminum exports to the U.S.

Trump signed proclamations on Thursday imposing a tariff on 25 percent on imported steel and 10 percent on aluminum.

The tariffs will not initially apply to Canada and Mexico.
