Those fears heightened when European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker reacted angrily to the announcement from the White House, promising to impose retaliatory tariffs on jeans, bourbon, and Harley-Davidson motorcycles.

Marchionne, who called the EU threats to impose retaliatory tariffs "an unnecessarily childish reaction," called for calm on all sides. "I think everyone should just be very quiet for a couple of days, recollect their brain cells, and then sit down at the table and argue this thing out intelligently, without letting tempers and rhetoric get in the way."
