TRUMP WANTS TO DISMANTLE NATO
European Union Strikes Back – Declares Donald Trump Spreads ‘Fake News’
Literally minutes after CBS aired an interview in which President Donald Trump declared the European Union to be among America’s greatest enemies, the head of the EU struck back.
European Council President Donald Tusk (photo, left) took to Twitter, and in an elegant mocking of Trump’s favorite phrase, declared, “America and the EU are best friends. Whoever says we are foes is spreading fake news.” The European Council represents the European Union.
America and the EU are best friends. Whoever says we are foes is spreading fake news.

President Trump had told CBS News, “I think the European Union is a foe, what they do to us in trade. Now, you wouldn’t think of the European Union, but they’re a foe.”
The European Union is comprised of 28 member nations, including France, Spain, Germany, and Italy.
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.”
“Most of its members our NATO allies,” he adds, which goes to the heart of why Trump just declared the EU America’s “foe.” Trump has made it clear he wants to destroy NATO, which is among Putin’s top goals.
Trump, in Orwellian spin, brands EU a foe. Our largest trade partner, largest investor in our economy, our ally in climate, human rights+protecting democracy. Most of its members our NATO allies. Trump dividing us from our true friends. https://t.co/w4ZQdlXaBt
