Trump said the EU was created to exploit the US

US President Donald Trump said that the European Union was formed to exploit the American state in its interests, reports TASS.

During a press conference at the White House, he recalled that the United States is competing with China and many countries around the world. The American leader also mentioned the EU, which, according to him, never treated the United States well.

“The EU was created to take advantage of the United States. It was created and they enjoy the USA. I know this, they know that I know it, but other presidents had no idea, ”Trump emphasized.

At the same time, the head of the White House did not give specific examples, but later noted that the United States has “excellent relations” with European countries, which, according to Trump, have been unfair to the States for many decades, especially on trade.

“It’s very easy to solve, and I was ready to solve it, but then a pandemic hit us,” the American president.
