When asked during a CBS interview who he considered to be his biggest foe globally, President Trump named the European Union, because of “what they do to us on trade.”
He added: “Now you wouldn’t think of the European Union, but they’re a foe. Russia is a foe in certain respects. China is a foe economically, certainly a foe.”
This description did not go down well with Donald Tusk, the president of the European Council. He fired back at Trump in a sharp riposte on Twitter.
He tweeted:“America and the E.U. are best friends. Whoever says we are foes is spreading fake news.”
