Trump calls the European Union a ‘foe’ of the United States

SATURDAY

US President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump are greeted by Ambassador Robert Frank Pence, Ambassador of the United States of America to the Republic of Finland and his wife Mrs. Suzy Pence, at Helsinki-Vantaa airport in Vantaa, Finland, July 15, 2018.

"I go in with very low expectations".

"Well I think we have a lot of foes". "But it's possible we won't". The Foreign Ministry called the indictments "a shameful comedy" and said they were aimed at disrupting the Helsinki summit. It is noteworthy, however, that last week he downplayed the idea of Russian President Vladimir Putin as an enemy, presenting him as a competitor instead. "I hadn't thought of that". "But I certainly, I'll be asking about it".

Trump is blaming the Democratic National Committee for "allowing themselves to be hacked".

Trump added the European Union has "really taken advantage of us on trade" though this "does not mean that they are bad".

"Our relationship with Russian Federation has NEVER been worse thanks to many years of U.S. foolishness and stupidity and now, the Rigged Witch Hunt!". It contains no allegations that US citizens committed a crime, he said.

The US has imposed tariffs on steel and aluminium against the European Union and other allies, sparking retaliation.

This latest interview segment, in which the president had harsher words for the European Union and FBI Agent Peter Strzok than for Russia, follows a heated summit between Trump and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation partners in Brussels and new charges against Russian intel officers for alleged meddling in the 2016 election campaign.

Graham said May's approval of the Putin meeting is still important since Britain is America's closest ally as well as similarly a rival of Russian Federation.

Yet, President Trump has never criticized Mr Putin and indeed has been more likely to express his admiration.

"I respect the leaders of those countries", he said.

It also follows President Trump's highly controversial attendance at the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels and his weekend visit to Britain.

Trump also may be getting plaudits for doing something the Kremlin has been striving for years: driving cracks between the powerful western alliance that has confronted Russian Federation. "You're supposed to be fighting for someone and then that someone gives billions of dollars to the one you're, you know, guarding against".

"We're reviewing our policies in light of this and expect to make updates soon", Twitter told the New York Times' Jim Rutenberg.
