In a letter to be sent to members the of U.S. Congress today, the delegation for U.S. relations criticized “the increasingly harmful approach from the White House” and decries the demotion of the EU ambassador to the U.S. in the largely ceremonial Diplomatic List of Precedence to “the bottom of the list.”
Donald Trump does not understand that in matters of trade and other important policy positions, the member states of the European Union (EU) cannot have independent positions because they are bound by collective responsibility. Trump says he does not like dealing with the European Union and says he prefers making deals with individual countries and to demonstrate this he has demoted the EU ambassador in the diplomatic list to last place. This pettiness does not change the reality that the EU is united and not susceptible to divide and conquer tricks.
