Biden seeks EU support on China, but trade battles persist

#US President Joe #Biden will seek the #EU‘s backing on Tuesday to face the rise of #China, but #Brussels wants a swift end to lingering trade rows and a clean break from Donald #Trump. After the European enthusiasm that followed Biden’s election, the president of the European Council Charles Michel, representing the 27 EU leaders, and the head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, will sound out Biden for more detail on his “America is back” pledge.
