European stocks close lower amid Trump remarks about China and the Fed

Shares in Europe closed lower on average on Friday afternoon following remarks from President Donald Trump over imposing tariffs on $ 505 billion worth of goods.

The pan-European Stoxx 600 ended provisionally lower by 0.09 percent at 385.2. The FTSE 100 in London ended flat, lower by just 0.04 percent.

Auto stocks were the worst-performers, down more than 2 percent amid reports that the European Commission is preparing retaliatory tariffs in case the U.S. moves ahead with duties on European carmakers. Banking shares were also under pressure amid comments from President Trump that he was not “thrilled” about the policy the Fed has followed.
