With friends like Trump, who needs enemies - EU's Tusk

President of the European Council Donald Tusk stated on Wednesday that United States President Donald Trump's latest decisions showed the EU that it has to rely on its own even when it needs a helping hand. Tusk went on to say that with friends such as Trump, "who needs enemies."

"Looking at latest decisions of @realDonaldTrump someone could even think: with friends like that who needs enemies. But frankly, EU should be grateful. Thanks to him we got rid of all illusions. We realise that if you need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of your arm," Tusk wrote on Twitter.

Recently, Trump has infuriated his key allies in Europe with a series of controversial decisions, including the relocation of US embassy to Jerusalem, the withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal as well as the tariffs on steel and aluminum imports.
