Der Spiegel: Time for Europe to Join the Resistance

As an American living abroad I See a lot of European press that most Americans probably don't. But even in that context I am surprized this hasn't become a big deal:

Time for Europe to Join the Resistance



The most shocking realization, however, is one that affects us directly: The West as we once knew it no longer exists. Our relationship to the United States cannot currently be called a friendship and can hardly be referred to as a partnership. President Trump has adopted a tone that ignores 70 years of trust. He wants punitive tariffs and demands obedience. It is no longer a question as to whether Germany and Europe will take part in foreign military interventions in Afghanistan or Iraq. It is now about whether trans-Atlantic cooperation on economic, foreign and security policy even exists anymore. The answer: No.
