Trade deals can be tricky to negotiate, especially ones that have major impact on countries like the US.
However, when the two countries reach an agreement to sell food to each other, the US is in the clear.
Read moreAt a news conference on Wednesday, EU President Donald Tusk said the EU was ready to move forward with a deal with the US, which is expected to be signed by the end of the year.
Tusk said a deal would allow food imports to continue, but not food exports.
“The US is a big food importer.
The European Union can be a big consumer.
We need to be able to get on with the negotiations,” Tusk told reporters at a joint news conference in Brussels.
The US food trade agreement is not without controversy, however.
A number of trade groups and politicians have raised concerns that it is not fair that the US will get to keep much of the benefits that it has received from the agreement, including an exemption for dairy products, which are used in American food.
Trump has previously expressed concern that the EU’s deal with China could have a negative impact on the US and that trade with China has hurt the US economy.
The EU is currently in talks with the Trump administration on the trade agreement, and hopes to sign a trade agreement with China before the end.
Talks on the EU-US trade deal have been underway since 2013.
The European Commission, which negotiates trade deals, is leading the talks, and Tusk is also part of the group.
In addition to food, the EU has a free trade agreement in the US with Canada and Mexico.
