Trump slams Germany, says EU is 'foe' in trade

The European Union has "really taken advantage" of the United States in trade relations, President Donald Trump told CBS News. In an excerpt from an interview, aired on Sunday, he went on to call the bloc a "foe"

"Russia is foe in certain respects. China is a foe economically, certainly they are a foe. But that doesn't mean they are bad. It doesn't mean anything. It means that they are competitors," he said and stressed the relations with the EU are "very difficult."

Germany's pipeline project with Russia is "a big problem," Trump said. "You're supposed to be fighting for someone and that someone gives billions of dollars to the one you are guarding against... There is a lot of anger at the fact that Germany is paying Russia billions of dollars," in his words. Trump said the situation is "ridiculous" and claimed the government in Berlin is "waving a white flag" to the Kremlin.
