Donald Tusk: Trump Administration Statements Are Worrying

AFP: EU's Tusk says Trump administration statements'worrying

"Particularly the change in Washington puts the European Union in a hard situation; with the new administration seeming to put into question the last 70 years of American foreign policy", he wrote.

Trump has not been kind to the European Union as of late. Leaders are reported to have been hesitant to take action given the strength of ties between the United States and the EU.

In a recent interview with Germany's Bild and the Sunday Times, President Trump reiterated he thought of the NATO Alliance as "obsolete" and talked of the European Union as "a vehicle for Germany". Trump has also personally attacked German Chancellor Angela Merkel's refugee policy on a number of occasions.

He added that at a time when the need for a strong European voice was more important than ever, "we are optimistic that this will be stronger and more sensible than ever".

The EU experiment of Mega-Government and denationalized socialism has failed. Just last week, the man tipped to be his ambassador to Brussels compared the EU to the Soviet Union, and hinted that he wants to help bring it down, just like the USSR.

In a letter to national leaders before a summit he will chair in Malta on Friday, the conservative former Polish prime minister said Mr Trump had joined Russia, China and radical Islam among threats to Europe.

It also provides additional resources to DHS to "stop illegal immigrants from entering the United States". One of Donald Trump's major campaign pledges was to build a wall between the USA and Mexico.

In vivid language that reflects deep concern in Europe at the new US president's support for Brexit, as well as his ban on refugees and people from several Muslim countries, Tusk called on Europeans to rally against eurosceptic nationalists at home and take "spectacular steps" to deepen the continent's integration.

"We should use the change in the trade strategy of the United States to the EU's advantage by intensifying our talks with interested partners, while defending our interests at the same time", Tusk added. Other global challenges will also be discussed.

"We can not surrender to those who want to weaken or invalidate the transatlantic bond, without which global order and peace can not survive", he said.

Tusk wrote, "We should remind our American friends of their own motto: United we stand, divided we fall".

The summit, which forms part of Malta's European Union presidency, will be focusing on Brexit, migration and the situation in Libya.
