US President Donald Trump’s actions have “weakened” the West, German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel said today, while also charging that Trump’s “short-sighted” policies hurt EU interests.

“Anyone who accelerates climate change by weakening environmental protection, who sells more weapons in conflict zones and who does not want to politically resolve religious conflicts is putting peace in Europe at risk,” Gabriel said.

“The short-sighted policies of the American government stand against the interests of the European Union,” he said, adding that “the West has become smaller, at least it has become weaker.”
