Deutscher Außenminister: Wir können uns nicht mehr voll und ganz auf die USA nach Trump erklärten EU zum “Feind”

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas on Monday said that Europe could no longer fully rely on the U.S. following President Trump’s comments about the European Union (EU).

“We can no longer completely rely on the White House,” Maas told a German newspaper, according to Reuters. “To maintain our partnership with the USA we must readjust it. The first clear consequence can only be that we need to align ourselves even more closely in Europe.”

In a Sunday interview, Trump told CBS News’s Jeff Glor that the EU was one of his biggest global “foes” due to their policies on trade.

Trump has repeatedly criticized trade policies between the U.S. and EU, arguing they are too unfavorable to the United States.

Trump has imposed 25 percent tariffs on imports of steel from the EU and other countries, which has led the EU to take steps to retaliate against U.S. exports.

Trump’s “foe” comment comes just days after he clashed with German Chancellor Angela Merkel at the NATO summit, criticizing Germany for being “captive” to Russia over a pipeline deal.

Trump and Merkel met following the comments at NATO, and the president maintained that the US has a “tremendous relationship” with Germany.
