WASHINGTON (AP) —  European Union Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker (zhahn-KLOHD' YUN'-kur) says he has made a deal with President Donald Trump to try to ease trade tensions.

Juncker says during a joint Rose Garden appearance with Trump that he "had the intention to make a deal today and we made a deal today."

Juncker says after a lengthy meeting with Trump that the EU has decided to increase imports of American soybeans and liquefied natural gas.

He says, "it will be done."

He also says as long as negotiations are ongoing, "We will hold off further tariffs" and reassess existing tariffs on steel and aluminum.
