DOWNGRADED: Trump Humiliates Brussels By Revoking EU’s ‘Nation State’ Status
The Donald, who has never really much liked the EU, has once again humiliated Brussels. EU officials working in Washington were somewhat bemused to find their delegation lowered to that of ‘international organisation’ from ‘nation state’.
Brussels is suitably unhappy.
One source told the German broadcaster, DW:
“We don’t exactly know when they did it, because they conveniently forgot to notify us.
“I can confirm that this has not been well received in Brussels.”
Barack Obama awarded the EU ‘nation state’ status back in September 2016. Relations between the Trump administration and Brussels however have been notably more frosty. He imposed tariffs on aluminum and steel and has also suggested he may trigger similar measures on the European car industry’s exports to the US. EU Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom today heads to Washington for a round of talks with US counterpart Robert Lighthizer in a attempt by Eurocrats to avoid an escalation to the trade war.
