Europe can’t rely on Trump. But can it fix itself? – CNNMoney

Europe is coming to terms with a new reality: The United States will no longer be a reliable partner.

[Opinion] From Greece to Scotland, we stand by Europe – EUobserver

The victory of a pro-European, Emmanuel Macron, in the French presidential election, should not be an invitation to underplay the unprecedented success of the Front National running on a Frexit agenda, the triggering of Article 50 for the UK’s EU exit, or Juncker’s white paper openly questioning the current EU model.

We need a new defence strategy – Donald Trump has hung Europe out to dry – The Guardian

The Polish army fields three divisions, as does Germany’s Bundeswehr. France has two, Romania two, the UK two and the Baltic states could just about scrape together one.

Following Trump’s trip, Merkel says Europe can’t rely on ‘others.’ She means the US – Washington Post

LONDON — German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Sunday declared a new chapter in U.S.-European relations after contentious meetings with President Trump last week, saying that Europe “really must take our fate into our own hands.” It was the toughest review yet of Trump’s trip to Europe, which inflamed tensions rather than healed them after the U.S. president […]
