Germany's trade surplus with the U.S. is showing little sign of buckling under U.S. President Donald Trump's claims of unfair practices. The nation's exports to the U.S. exceeded imports by 24.4 billion euros ($28.3 billion) in the first half of the year, German data showed Tuesday. That's barely changed from the 24.5 billion euros in the same period of 2017 .The U.S. is also Germany's largest non-European Union export destination, taking 9 percent of the nation's shipments last year.The nation's global trade surplus was 122 billion euros in the first half of 2018, putting it on track to match last year's 244 billion euros, and within reach of 2016's record 249 billion euros.Juncker told the president at their meeting Europe will expand imports of the fuel from the U.S.
