‘No return to good old times’ of transatlantic relations after US election – French FM Le Drian

After 4 years of chaos, many Euro leaders want rid of Trump… but President Biden could make life very difficult for some

“Europe has in the past four years asserted its sovereignty, in the areas of security, defense and strategic autonomy,” according to Le Drian. The EU’s common defense fund and moves to regulate US internet giants’ activities show that the continent “has shed its naivety… and begun to assert itself as a power.”

Amid the current uncertainty about the winner of the US election, Le Drian expects good sense to prevail, while the US institutions will “ensure the correct results.”

During Donald Trump’s tenure, Europe and the US have had disagreements on foreign policy, NATO spending, the environment, and trade. But EU foreign affairs chief Josep Borrell said on Wednesday: “While we wait for the election result, the EU remains ready to continue building a strong transatlantic partnership, based on our shared values and history.”

Many politicians are less optimistic. The leader of Germany’s Green Party, Robert Habeck, believes if Trump wins the election, the global order may change fundamentally. “Europe must unite, otherwise it will no longer play a role internationally,” Habeck warned.
