trump to lure countries out of EU?

Tuesday, January 17th, 2017

theodore malloch, whom politico has fingered as the donald j. trump’s adminstrations’ envoy to the EU mentions that the US could lure countries out of the EU via bilateral trade deals. given that malloch attended the university of toronto, obviously he must be qualified to work as an envoy to the EU. obviously trump and malloch have a misreading of what the European Union is. what we do know is (as we’ve said repeatedly here), charles de gaulle was right when he repeatedly vetoed the UK joining the EU. one of the reasons was because he thought the US would hold too much sway over the group.
