United States President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal has miffed the European Union. The European Union has slammed the United States saying that it acted more as an enemy than a friend. Earlier, in a bid to save the deal formally known as Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), EU officials met their Iranian counterparts. The deal was left in the lurch after President Trump on May 9 announced withdrawal from it. Meanwhile, the European Union is also trying to be exempted from the aluminum and steel trade tariffs imposed by the US.
