Trump's policies "a risk" for German car makers, Daimler CEO says

STUTTGART, Oct 24 (Reuters) - The economic and trade policies of U.S. President Donald Trump are a risk for German car makers, the chief executive of Daimler said on Tuesday.

"So far there has been no negative effect on our business," CEO Dieter Zetsche said at a conference. "But of course it is a risk."

Trump, hoping to protect U.S. car makers, has criticised the import of cars into the United States as unfair trade.

The president has also thrown the North America Free Trade Agreement with Mexico into question. Mexico plays an important role in production of German cars that are sold in the United States. (Reporting by Ilona Wissenbach; Writing by Tom Sims; Editing by Alison Williams)
