Trump snobba Mr Juncker e Mr Tusk. Non risponde nemmeno.

 Jean-Claude Juncker und Martin Schulz in der Wahlarena

Mr Juncker e Mr Tusk avevano preparato una lettera ufficiale di congratulazioni per Mrs Hillary Clinton, ma non avevano minimamente preso in considerazione l’ipotesi che questa arrivasse seconda, mentre Mr Trump arrivasse penultimo.

Per questo motivo la lettera di congratulazioni è partita solo alle ore 10:05 del giorno nove settembre, buona ultima di quelle di molte cancellerie.

Già questo indicherebbe l’acume politico dei firmatari. Per non citare poi quanto successo:

*

Il Financial Times riporta alquanto malignamente alcune frasi:

«The EU’s top officials implored Donald Trump to help guarantee the territorial integrity of Ukraine in a letter congratulating the president-elect on his victory»

*

«Only by cooperating closely can the EU and the US continue to make a difference when dealing with unprecedented challenges such as Da’esh, the threats to Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, climate change and migration»

*

«our joint efforts  to enhance energy security and address climate change, through EU – US collaboration on facing threats to security in Europe’s Eastern and Southern neighbourhoods, and to the negotiations on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership»

*

Ricapitoliamo.

Mai chi mai si sarebbero creduti di essere?

Quella strana coppia inviata Mr Trump ad andare da loro, non loro a richiedere un’udienza al nuovo Presidente degli Stati Uniti, su questi temi:

– Ukraina;

– lotta al Da’esh (termine usato dall’Arabia Saudita, non dal resto del mondo);

– climate changes;

– energy security;

– Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership.

*

Per rendere più gradito il loro invito, Mr Juncker e Mr Tusk hanno aggiunto con vivo senso diplomatico alcuni commenti propalati alla stampa inernazionale per meglio ingraziarsi Mr Trump:

«Dovrà terminare il giro del mondo che non conosce»

*

«perderemo due anni, aspettando che Trump termini di fare il giro del mondo che non conosce»

*

«l’elezione di Donald Trump pone il rischio di vedere gli equilibri intercontinentali disturbati nei loro fondamenti e nella loro struttura. Detto questo, ho una lunga vita politica alle spalle e ho lavorato con quattro presidenti Usa»

*

«gli americani non hanno alcun interesse per l’Europa: questo è vero per la classe dirigente e per l’America profonda. Non conoscono l’Europa. …. La vittoria di Trump può avere delle conseguenze perniciose perché viene messa in questione l’alleanza transatlantica e quindi il modello sul quale si poggia la difesa dell’Europa»

*

«attitudini di Trump nei confronti dei migranti e degli statunitensi non bianchi, attitudini che non rispettano i valori europei»

*

«Donald Trump is the expression of a virus that has deeply infected our societies, not only in the US but also in Europe»

*

«European Parliament President Martin Schulz said the presient elect would make life ”harder” for the European Union.»

* * * * * * *

«Evidentemente indispettito perché Donald Trump ha finora snobbato l’invito dell’Ue di un incontro ai massimi livelli – preferendo annunciare un ‘bilaterale’ con la premier britannica Theresa May – il numero uno della Commissione europea Jean Claude Juncker, ha detto che “perderemo due anni, aspettando che Trump termini di fare il giro del mondo che non conosce”. Juncker parlava a un incontro pubblico a Lussemburgo. Juncker e il presidente della Ue Tusk hanno invitato Trump a un incontro ‘a tre’ il piu’ presto possibile per definire le relazioni transtlantiche, nel loro primo messaggio augurale per la vittoria elettorale. Il neopresidente Usa, che peraltro entrerà alla Casa Bianca a fine gennaio, non ha neppure risposto, che si sappia.»

Non si vorrebbero fare commenti sarcastici.

Se è vero che gli Stati Uniti hanno bisogno di un’Europa consistente, è altrettanto vero che non hanno alcun bisogno della élite e della dirigenza che al momento la stanno governando. Mr Juncker, Mr Schulz, Mr Hollande, Frau Merkel non hanno più alle spalle il potente padrino americano.

Ma fra i due fatidici anni, Mr Juncker e Mr Tusk saranno ancora alla guida di questa Unione Europea? Non ci sarà magari Marine Le Pen?

Il fatto che Mr Trump non li abbia nemmeno presi in considerazione non sembrerebbe essere segno prognostico favorevole. E da martedì otto novembre di tempo ne è passato….

 



The European Council. Council of the European Union. 2016-11-11. Letter from Presidents Tusk and Juncker to congratulate Donald Trump on his election as the next President of the United States

Letter from Presidents Tusk and Juncker to congratulate Donald Trump on his election as the next President of the United States.

*

We extend our sincere  congratulations on your election as the 45th President of the United States of America.

The strategic partnership between the European Union and the United States is rooted in our shared values of freedom, human rights, democracy and a belief in the market economy. Over the years, the European Union and the United States have worked together to ensure peace and prosperity for our citizens and for people around the world.

Today, it is more important than ever to strengthen transatlantic relations. Only by cooperating closely can the EU and the US continue to make a difference when dealing with unprecedented challenges such as Da’esh, the threats to Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, climate change and migration.

Fortunately, the EU – US strategic partnership is broad and deep: from our joint efforts  to enhance energy security and address climate change, through EU – US collaboration on facing threats to security in Europe’s Eastern and Southern neighbourhoods, and to the negotiations on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership – we should spare no effort to ensure that the ties that bind us remain strong and durable.

We should consolidate the bridges we have been building across the Atlantic. Europeans trust that America, whose democratic ideals have always been a beacon of hope around the globe, will continue to invest in its partnerships with friends and allies, to help make our citizens and the people of the world more secure and more prosperous.

We would take this opportunity to invite you to visit Europe for an EU – US Summit at your earliest convenience. This conversation would allow for us to chart the course of our relations for the next four years.

 


Financial Times. 2016-11-11. Juncker and Tusk appeal to Trump to support Ukraine

The EU’s top officials implored Donald Trump to help guarantee the territorial integrity of Ukraine in a letter congratulating the president-elect on his victory.

In a joint letter to Mr Trump, the presidents of the EU’s two main institutions called for the US and EU to work together to combat “threats to Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity” and help deal with other issues such Da’esh and the EU’s migration crisis, writes Duncan Robinson.

Officials in eastern Europe have questioned whether a Trump presidency would be willing to stick by the US’s allies in the region, citing concerns over the president-elect’s positive comments about Russian leader Vladimir Putin.

European Council president Donald Tusk and European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker wrote:

Today, it is more important than ever to strengthen transatlantic relations. Only by cooperating closely can the EU and the US continue to make a difference when dealing with unprecedented challenges such as Da’esh, the threats to Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, climate change and migration.

They also invited Mr Trump for an EU-US summit in Europe at his “earliest convenience”.

Elsewhere in Brussels, the head of the European Parliament’s socialist group labelled Mr Trump’s election “sad”, “scary” and the “expression of a virus” in the sharpest criticism yet by an EU politician.

Gianni Pittella, who leads the second largest bloc in the EU’s parliament, said:

Donald Trump is the expression of a virus that has deeply infected our societies, not only in the US but also in Europe.

Dovrà “terminare il giro del mondo che non conosce”.

Detto questo, ho una lunga vita politica alle spalle e ho lavorato con quattro presidenti Usa”. E’ un fatto in ogni caso che “gli americani non hanno alcun interesse per l’Europa: questo è vero per la classe dirigente e per l’America profonda. Non conoscono l’Europa. Trump ha detto durante la campagna elettorale che il Belgio è una cittadina in Europa. La vittoria di Trump può avere delle conseguenze “perniciose perché viene messa in questione l’alleanza transatlantica e quindi il modello sul quale si poggia la difesa dell’Europa”. Per non parlare delle attitudini di Trump “nei confronti dei migranti e degli statunitensi non bianchi, attitudini che non rispettano i valori europei”.

 


Ansa. 2016-11-09. Tusk-Juncker want strong US-EU ties with Trump

Brussels, November 9 – European Council President Donald Tusk and Commissione President Jean-Claude Juncker sent a joint letter on Wednesday to congratulate Donald Trump on being elected United States president. “The strategic partnership between the European Union and the United States is rooted in our shared values of freedom, human rights, democracy and a belief in the market economy,” the letter read.

    “Over the years, the European Union and the United States have worked together to ensure peace and prosperity for our citizens and for people around the world.

    Today, it is more important than ever to strengthen transatlantic relations,” the letter read. “Only by cooperating closely can the EU and the US continue to make a difference when dealing with unprecedented challenges such as Da’esh, the threats to Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, climate change and migration… we should spare no effort to ensure that the ties that bind us remain strong and durable”

 


Express. 2016-11-10. Panicked EU BEGS Donald Trump to discuss TTIP trade over fears USA would go to UK first

JEAN-CLAUDE Juncker and Donald Tusk have invited newly elected US president Donald Trump to a EU-US summit in a desperate attempt to re-start TTIP negotiations.

*

The Brussels mandarins sent a letter to the Republican leader immediately after his victory, extending their “sincere congratulations”. 

The letter expressed their hope Mr Trump would help foster a close relationship between America and the 28-country bloc.

It read: “Dear Mr President-Elect. We extend our sincere congratulations on your election as the 45th President of the United States of America.

“Today it is more important than ever to strength transatlantic relations. Only by cooperating closely can the EU and the US continue to make a difference when dealing with unprecedented challenges, such as Da’esh, the threats to Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, climate change and migration.”

Speaking at the European Council today, President Donald Tusk said the result of the US election would bring with it “uncertainty of transatlantic relations”. 

Mr Tusk said: “While respecting the democratic choice of the American people, we are aware of the new challenges the results bring, one of them is the uncertainty of transatlantic relations.”

Speaking hours after Mr Trump was announced as president, Mr Tusk said: “It is good to remember the strengths of the Western community.

“The United States did more than anyone else to help build the European Union.

“No one can take away our links or make us give up our shared memories and values such as freedom, solidarity and respect for the individual.

“The events of the past month and today should be treated as a warning for all who belive in liberal democracy.

“This means we should get our act together and bring back a sense of direction, bring back confidence and a sense of order.”

The president of the European Council urged Europe and the US to work closely together.

He said: “Europe and the US have no option but to co-operate as closely together.”

“I would like to call for European and transatlantic unity, I do not believe any country can be great in isolation.”

“We have to recognise that working together will take a great effort from both sides.”

Mr Trump, who secured a stunning US election victory over his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton earlier today, was also invited to take part in a EU-US summit – with particular emphasis put on the controversial TTIP negotiations.

Their letter continued: “Fortunately, the EU-US strategic partnership is broad and deep, from our joint efforts to enhance energy security and address climate change … to the negotiations on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).

“We would take this opportunity to invite you all to visit Europe or an EU-US Summit at your earliest convenience.

“This conversation would allow for us to chart the course of our relations for the next four years.”

Not everyone within the EU was as congratulatory or graceful in responding to Mr Trump’s victory. 

European Parliament President Martin Schulz said the presient elect would make life ”harder” for the European Union.

He said: “It will be hard, harder than with previous administrations but he is the freely elected president.

“We must respect the future president of the United State. I hope we will find a slot to cooperate.”
