European Union is a foe, says Donald Trump

"I think the European Union is a foe, what they do to us in trade".

He added: "You wouldn't think of the European Union, but they're a foe".

"I think we have a lot of foes", Trump said. Russia's a foe in certain respects. "China is a foe economically certainly. but that doesn't mean they're bad..." It doesn't mean anything. "It means that they're competitors", Trump told CBS anchor Jeff Glor on Sunday.

Nicholas Burns, a former former US Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs, now a Harvard Kennedy School Professor, notes the European Union is America's "largest trade partner, largest investor in our economy, our ally in climate, human rights+protecting democracy".

Also, on Monday, Trump holds a summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki. "Whoever says we are foes is spreading fake news".

Trump added although he respects European Union leaders, he described the 28-member bloc as "very hard".

"Despite what you have heard from the fake news, I had a great meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel". 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.

Reactions to Paul George spurning Lakers, possible LeBron partnership
The deal he signed is four years, but three of those years are guaranteed with the fourth one being a play option. According to a report from ESPN's Royce Young , George is flying into Oklahoma City on Saturday afternoon.

Trump repeated his previous assertion that the European Union has "really taken advantage of us on trade".

"They're going to be paying Russian Federation billions and billions of dollars a year for energy, and I say that's not good, that's not fair", Trump told CBS. "I want to tell you".

According to Trump, the pipeline deal has generated "a lot of anger" for Germany, and it won't even be good for the country in the long run anyway.

"I also think it is very bad thing for Germany".

Trump has said he wants to raise nuclear arms control, Ukraine and Syria with Putin, who has served as Russia's pre-eminent leader since Boris Yeltsin resigned on the last day of 1999.

In response, European Union leader Donald Tusk tweeted: "America and the European Union are best friends".

Trump went on to repeat last week's attacks on Germany and America's North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, and he repeated his backhanded compliment that he respects how E.U. leaders have been able to taken advantage of the U.S. Considering Trump's statements about other world leaders, he seems to afford much more praise and respect to more authoritarian leaders than most European countries have to offer.
