EU Chief Juncker complains about Trump’s protectionism & chill in US-EU relations

EU-US relations are at historic lows because of the policies of the new US President Donald Trump, Jean-Claude Juncker, the head of the European Commission, has said in an interview with the Bild am Sonntag newspaper.

Interactions between the US and Europe “have entered a sort of a [period of] estrangement,” Juncker told the German publication, lamenting the cooling in relations between the two strategic partners.

The European Commission president went on to denounce Trump’s approach to relations with Europe as ridiculous. The fact that Trump welcomes Brexit and urges other states to follow suit shows that he has “an uncanny approach” towards relations with the EU, he said, adding, that this situation “requires intensive negotiations.”

Juncker also warned of a potential trade war between the US and the EU. Europe “must take the protectionist rhetoric of the Trump administration seriously and be prepared,” he told Bild am Sonntag.
