Why does EU need unfair trade practices with the US and why does anyone support the bad Iran deal?

NY Times:

Trump and Merkel Meet One on One, but Don’t See Eye to Eye

The two leaders made no attempt to hide their disagreements over the future of the Iran nuclear deal and trade relations between the United States and Europe.
Why does the EU need protectionist policies in their trade with the US?  That is what the dispute is really about.  If they removed their protectionist policies Trump would have no reason to impose tariffs. 

As for the Iran deal, it appears that proponents cling to it because Obama and Kerry gave away the store up front for meager concessions from Iran while not addressing the threats posed by their missile program which shows an intent to develop delivery vehicles for nukes they have said they are not building.  Why believe the leaders of Iran.  They believe that lying is an accepted form of negotiation.
