European markets come down in wake of Asian trading session

European stock markets are almost all in negative territory on Monday morning, following a decrease in the Asia-Pacific trading session, since trade tensions between the United States and China persist after last week’s trade negotiations failed as a result of Washington’s increased tariffs on Chinese imports from 10 percent to 25 percent.
