WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump is willing to wield tariffs and access to the U.S. market as he continues to push for trade deals with China as well as France and other European allies, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence said on Tuesday.

“What President Trump envisions with tariffs is a means to an end, and the end … is free trade,” Pence said in an interview with Fox Business Network.
