Putin’s puppet Donald Trump says the European Union is perhaps America’s “biggest foe globally right now,” insulting our oldest allies, while going light on Russia, saying they are a foe in “some respects.”
Trump told CBS News: “Well, I think we have a lot of foes. I think the European Union is a foe, what they do to us in trade. Now, you wouldn’t think of the European Union, but they’re a foe. Russia is foe in certain respects. China is a foe economically, certainly they are a foe. But that doesn’t mean they are bad. It doesn’t mean anything. It means that they are competitive.”
Trump added: “I respect the leaders of those countries. But, in a trade sense, they’ve really taken advantage of us and many of those countries are in NATO and they weren’t paying their bills.”
Um, what can I say other than f*ck you to Donald Trump. He is saying the things Vladimir Putin would say. Like Hillary Clinton said, Putin would rather have a puppet as president.
EU President Donald Tusk clapped back: “America and the EU are best friends. Whoever says we are foes is spreading fake news.”
America and the EU are best friends. Whoever says we are foes is spreading fake news.

Reaction on Twitter:
Another thing I never expected to hear from a US president:
CBS: "Your biggest foe globally right now?"
TRUMP: "I think the European Union is a foe, what they do to us in trade. Now you wouldn't think of the European Union but they're a foe."

Hi @GOP: Your guy, who you stick with no matter what, today called the European Union the enemy. He and Putin are destabilizing the world. And you do absolutely NOTHING. Because of tax cuts. And deregulation. And judges. Shame on you. Shame on you all.

We are under attack and it's not just Putin and Russia, but an insidious enemy within — our own president:

BREAKING: Trump called the entire European Union America’s greatest foe. Exactly what a traitor would say about our greatest allies. Russia is attacking our water/energy/internet/defense systems, harassing Americans at a constant and Trump kisses Putin’s ass. Weak and pathetic.

The 71 year-old man baby, loathed the world over, called the European Union a foe.
I beg to differ. The United States’ biggest foe right now, is Donald Trump. https://t.co/Obx6rLHuxw

Asked who is America’s biggest foe right now, Donald Trump’s first answer was “the European Union.”
Somewhere, Vladimir Putin is choking from laughing so hard with glee.
