Senior officials concerned about the future under a new American doctrine in which there are ‘no friends, only enemies’.
Donald Trump has been accused by the European Union of pioneering a new American doctrine in which there are “no friends, only enemies”.
The European Council’s president, Donald Tusk, said the EU had to now prepare for the worst due to the policies of Trump’s White House.
Tusk is planning to engage in a discussion with the leaders of the 28 member states on Thursday.
There is also concern among British officials in Westminster over Trump’s foreign policy, particularly his impending meeting with the Russian president, Vladimir Putin.
A senior Kremlin aide said on Wednesday that a time and location for the summit had been agreed and would be announced on Thursday.
Trump called Juncker “brutal” during a recent G7 meeting, where the US president appeared determined to isolate himself from his western allies. »
