Donald Trump Calls the European Union a 'Foe' of the U.S.

Donald Trump Calls the European Union a 'Foe' of the U.S.

Asked in an interview at his Turnberry golf resort who was his biggest foe globally, Mr Trump replied: "I think we have a lot of foes".

A private meeting with Putin, without aides, has concerned some USA and European officials, who fear the Russian president may take advantage of the situation to continue to try and drive a wedge between the United States and its North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies.

On Friday, Trump said: "I'm not going in with high expectations, but we may come out with very surprising things". "Now, you wouldn't think of the European Union, but they're a foe", the president said.

In a pre-summit interview with CBS News' "Face the Nation" programme aired on Sunday, Trump lumped in the European Union with China and Russian Federation as US economic adversaries. "Well I might, I hadn't thought of that, but I certainly, I'll be asking about it", Trump said. "It means that they are competitive", he said in the interview with CBS Evening News's Jeff Glor, which was conducted on Saturday.

"That's what one of the purposes of this meeting is, so the president can see eye to eye with President Putin and ask him about it", he said. Trump told reporters on Friday that he had given May advice about how to deal with the European Union that she found too "brutal".

Mr Trump also repeated his earlier criticism of the Obama administration, which was in power when the alleged hacking of Democratic party officials took place.

Always favouring bold gambits that would separate him from his predecessors, Trump believed that the historic meeting with Kim was potentially his ticket for a Nobel Peace Prize and would become an essential part of his legacy.

HELSINKI, Finland-President Donald Trump touched down at 8:53 p.m. local time in Helsinki on July 15, ahead of his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Vladimir Putin remains in Moscow for Russia's World Cup, but is set to travel to Finland's capital, in his first bilateral summit with Mr Trump since the US President took office in January 2017.

Shortly after the publication of the CBS interview, European Council President Donald Tusk wrote on Twitter that "America and the EU are best friends". She added that Trump also said: "Don't walk away".

"I know that the situation in the region is hard and we are grateful that you have used the World Cup as a reason to come to Moscow", Putin said, adding that he was glad of the opportunity to discuss the problems facing the Palestinians. "I think it's ridiculous", he told CBS. The latest indictments on Friday, which outlined in great detail the Kremlin's role in the election hacking, have made an already-controversial summit dramatically more so.

A USA federal grand jury charged 12 Russian intelligence officers on Friday with hacking Democratic computer networks in 2016, in the most detailed USA accusation yet that Moscow meddled in the election to help Republican Trump. After the election, Obama also expelled Russian diplomats from the United States and hit Russia with sanctions - sanctions Michael Flynn, Trump's former national security adviser, allegedly said would be "ripped up".

Assessing the Putin meeting, Trump said: "Nothing bad is going to come out of it, and maybe some good will come out".
