Ms Malmström told the BBC: "We are looking at possibilities to retaliate, meaning we will also put taxes or tariffs on USA imports to the European Union".
Mr Trump is being told by many sources, including British Prime Minister Theresa May, who telephoned him at the weekend, that the tariffs would hurt America's allies such as the United Kingdom, South Korea and Canada.
French economy minister Bruno Le Maire meanwhile said there would "only be losers" in a trade war between the USA and the EU.

Trump is on the verge of starting a trade war - and China isn't taking it lying down.
Amid these events, Trump announced Thursday that he would impose new tariffs - taxes on imports - of 25% on steel and 10% on aluminum.
That has included the threat that Washington will withdraw from the North American Free Trade Agreement if it is not satisfactorily renegotiated, and his unexpected, market-rattling announcement of plans for hefty tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. Our steel industry is in bad shape. "May's office says she noted that multilateral action was the only way to resolve the problem of global overcapacity". Countries are allowed recourse to that means under the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade in times of war and other emergencies. "Vehicle shoppers looking for a deal will instead find that they are paying a new tax to transport themselves and their families". Mexico, China and Brazil have also said they are considering retaliatory steps.
"It's troubling to see an American administration revert to some of the failed policies of the past that not just discourages growth, but punishes [it]", Scheer said.
