Piret Kuusik comments last week’s visit to the White House by French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

“President Trump’s Presidency has given a proper shake to transatlantic relationship and international affairs. Commonly shared values are not the hard currency as they used to be and the importance of multilateral cooperation is decreasing. We are yet to see how lasting the effect of these developments will be, but Europe and the EU must adapt. At least for the duration of Trump’s Presidency.”
