Preparing to meet Putin, Trump calls the European Union a 'foe'

"Now you wouldn't think of the European Union, but they're a foe". "Now you wouldn't think of the European Union but they're a foe", he said after being asked who the US' biggest adversary is globally in an interview aired by CBS' Face the Nation programme on Sunday.

The President added that "Russia is a foe in certain respects. But that doesn't mean they are bad", he continued. It doesn't mean anything. "It means that they are competitive", he said in the interview with CBS Evening News's Jeff Glor, which was conducted on Saturday.

European Union state Finland is seen as a neutral venue as it is not a member of the USA -led North Atlantic Treaty Organisation military alliance. Another frame for Trump's criticism of Europe was white nationalism, as he also said last week that it was a shame that European countries were allowing their cultures to be erased by allowing in immigrants.

President Trump included the European Union when rattling off a list of the "biggest foes" of the United States throughout the world. I also think it's a very bad thing for Germany.

After Glor noted that the European Union was at the top of his list, Trump replied: "I look at them all".

In fact, Trump's father was born in New York City. "As far as I'm concerned, a competitor - a competitor". He was referring to his unproven allegations that ex-President Barack Obama tapped his phone.

But despite his selfless act, Volanthen insisted that he was not a national hero - and that anyone else would have done the same. Rick Stanton denied he was a hero and said he was using a "very unique skill set" to "give something back to the community".

Asked who he considers to be the biggest foes of the United States, Trump cited the European Union and its trade practices before mentioning Russian Federation and China - a fact the reporter doing the interview immediately noticed.

"Despite what you have heard from the fake news, I had a great meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel".

The European Union is comprised of 28 member nations, including France, Spain, Germany, and Italy. His grandfather Frederick Trump was born in Germany. He went on to claim that: "Crime in Germany is way up. Whoever says we are foes is spreading fake news", Tusk tweeted.

Trump's comments double down on his criticism of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation member countries at last week's summit.

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 will take part in a one-on-one summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland, on Monday.
