NO LOVE LOST: Trump And The EU Trade Blows
It is my firm conviction that Donald Trump would be as glad to see the EU collapse as you or I; of course, statesmanlike protocol prevents him saying so but his active encouragement of rebellious elements with the Union, such as the Italian Government in general and Matteo Salvini in particular speaks volumes.
Guy Verhofstadt pulled no punches:
Great results for @TheDemocrats winning majority in the House of Representatives. But more important is to see that so many women are elected. People are fed up with #Trump’s divisive politics. #Midterms2018 https://t.co/WKU9Hp4Wcd

European heads of state maintained a circumspect silence when it came to criticising Trump, however, with no sense of irony, the Eurocracy let-rip. Gunter Oettinger, the EUs Energy Supremo, amazingly without once blushing, slammed Trump for being an “autocrat” like the rulers of Russia and Turkey.
However, it wasn’t all stony-faced hostility facing Trump from the continent. Clearly revelling in the Republicans Senate triumph, Italian Deputy Prime Minister urged him onto further triumphs exclaiming #GODONALDGO.
