EU should take leadership from US -
Juncker calls for Brussels to REPLACE US as world superpower after Trump scraps Iran deal
EU chief Jean-Claude Juncker has said Europe needs to “replace” the United States as a world superpower in the midst of an angry outburst after President Donald Trump confirmed he was pulling the US out of the Iran nuclear deal.
He added: “At this point, we have to replace the United States, which as an international actor has lost vigour, and because of it, in the long term, influence.”
EC President Jean-Claude Juncker says the US under Donald Trump is surprisingly brutally giving up on multilateral relations and friendly cooperation.~
Addressing the Flemish regional parliament, he said it was up to the EU to take leadership from the United States.
"At this point, we have to replace the United States, which has lost its strength as an international player, and therefore its long-term impact," Juncker said.
