Why Europe Fears Trump

Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) is claiming there is “concern across Europe” regarding what President Trump might promise to Vladimir Putin before their Helsinki meeting.


“Many of us are concerned, I certainly am, about the president’s ongoing rhetoric that really demeans or ridicules our allies and praises our adversaries,” he stated. “So this is a part of kind of a continuum, so yes it does concern me.”

“I’m glad that the president is talking to Vladimir Putin. I’m glad that he’s talking to North Korea as well, but I am concerned, and I know there is concern across Europe, about what might be promised. There was a promise made with regard to exercises with South Korea that may not have been fully vetted or noticed with South Korea. I know that countries in Europe are concerned about promises that might be made by the administration without consultation with our NATO allies.”
