Donald Trump calls European Union a 'foe'

Donald Trump calls European Union a 'foe'

When asked about who he sees as the U.S.'s biggest foe, he said that the US has "a lot of foes". "I think the European Union is a foe, what they do to us in trade". Russia's a foe in certain respects. The US leader added that he doesn't necessarily view them negatively. "China is a foe economically. but that doesn't mean they are bad". It doesn't mean anything. And you know, talking about shutting it down and "we, we.' And he says, 'Oh, I meant the American people" all of a sudden, you know.

Trump added although he respects European Union leaders, he described the 28-member bloc as "very hard".

"I hadn't thought of that", Trump said. Where they're going to be paying Russian Federation billions and billions of dollars a year for energy, and I say that's not good, that's not fair. "Because it's like, what, are they waving a white flag?"

The president also remarked on Strzok's explanation of his text to former Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyer Lisa Page, with whom he was having an affair, telling her "we'll stop it", referencing Trump's election.

"The Germans are bad, very bad. My father was Germany", Trump said. "Now, you wouldn't think of the European Union, but they're a foe". He was referring to his unproven allegations that ex-President Barack Obama tapped his phone. "Now you wouldn't think of the European Union, but they're a foe". And I thought it was a disgrace to our country. Trump named the European Union first. His grandfather Frederick Trump was born in Germany.

After many, many hours, Anderson beats Isner in Wimbledon semis
Novak Djokovic came through in a tense deciding set to beat longtime rival Rafael Nadal and book his place in the Wimbledon final. The previous record was 4 hours, 44 minutes in 2013 when Novak Djokovic defeated Juan Martin del Potro .

"They're going to be paying Russian Federation billions and billions of dollars a year for energy, and I say that's not good, that's not fair", Trump told CBS. "Whoever says we are foes is spreading fake news", Mr Tusk wrote on Twitter.

He reiterated a criticism he made of Germany during a tense North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) summit in Brussels last week, namely that the country should not have agreed to the Nord Stream 2 pipeline project with Russian Federation.

Then, before making his first state visit to the United Kingdom, the president gave a insane interview to a British tabloid in which he blasted British prime minister Theresa May and praised her primary rival, criticizing her handling of the Brexit crisis - though he later tried to deny having made the (recorded) statement.

Trump also offered little indication he had confidence in Monday's Helsinki meeting producing any groundbreaking outcomes.
