EU council president calls out Donald Trump's 'transatlantic bickering' in face of Russia tension

Source: Independent

The president of the European Council has launched a thinly-veiled attack on Donald Trump’s approach to international relations, accusing the US president of “transatlantic bickering” in the face of apparent Russian aggression.

In a Wednesday afternoon tweet in which he did not explicitly name the US president, Donald Tusk said that the requirement for “transatlantic unity” should be “obvious” for Europe’s “real friends” after the US president pushed forward with tariffs on European steel and aluminium.

The intervention comes a day after the deputy president of the European Commission Frans Timmermans called for "solidarity" from European countries to the British government and people in the face of the poisoning of a former Russian spy in Sailsbury.
