Donald Trump Declares The European Union A 'Foe'

On the eve of the Brussels summit, Tusk advised Trump to be more appreciative of allies because the United States doesn't "have that many".

"Tell us where you're going to extradite those folks", said Representative Trey Gowdy, who chaired a raucous House investigative hearing on Thursday that highlighted bitter, partisan divisions within the U.S. Congress over a probe of Russian election meddling that has clouded Trump's presidency. "I think the European Union is a foe, what they do to us in trade", Trump replied.

"But, in a trade sense, they've really taken advantage of us and many of those countries are in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and they weren't paying their bills".

The President added that "Russia is a foe in certain respects. China is a foe economically, certainly they are a foe", said Mr Trump. "But that doesn't mean they are bad", he said. It means that they are competitors.

Trump's remarks follow an escalating pattern of often haphazard attacks on America's European allies, especially in recent months as Trump's attempts to start a global trade war have intensified.

He later gave an interview to British tabloid The Sun where he publically criticized British Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit negotiation strategy as she hosted him.

"A lot of people might be surprised to hear you list the E.U.as a foe before China and Russia", Glor responded. Look at the millions of cars they sell in the US.

The President also lied about his parents, saying that both "were born in European Union sectors". I mean, my mother was Scotland.

"Germany's like sitting back silent, collecting money and making a fortune with probably the greatest leader in the world today, Merkel", Trump said in a 2015 interview with U.S. news magazine Time. His grandfather Frederick Trump was born in Germany. And, you know, I love those countries. Another frame for Trump's criticism of Europe was white nationalism, as he also said last week that it was a shame that European countries were allowing their cultures to be erased by allowing in immigrants. "But, in a trade sense, they've really taken advantage of us, and many of those countries are in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and they weren't paying their bills", Trump said. Trump departed for Helsinki on Sunday evening after spending the day playing golf at his private club in Scotland.

"I tell you what, there's a lot of anger at the fact that Germany is paying Russian Federation billions of dollars". "I want to tell you". There's a lot of anger.
