‘Goodbye Europe!’ Der Spiegel Depicts Trump as Middle Finger Flipping Off EU Amid Iran Deal Tensions

  • ‘Goodbye Europe!’ Der Spiegel Depicts Trump as Middle Finger Flipping Off EU Amid Iran Deal Tensions

    German magazine Der Spiegel has released its new issue, with a cover featuring Donald Trump on a middle finger, flipping the bird. It comes just days after the US angered Europe by walking away from the Iran nuclear deal.

    Reaction from EU officials is still pouring in since Trump announced his decision earlier this week, so it didn’t take long before the cover was retweeted by French Ambassador to the US Gerard Araud.

    German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas also had a few words to say to Der Spiegel on Friday about Washington pulling out of the Iran nuclear deal, saying the US has shown “very little willingness to take the arguments of its allies seriously.” He went on to say that the decision has “already taken hold of transatlantic ties.”

    Der Spiegel’s tone on the cover was matched inside the magazine, with an editorial titled “Time for Europe to Join the Resistance.” The article says that US President Donald Trump is “only proficient in destruction,” referencing his pulling out of the Iran nuclear deal and Paris climate agreement.

    The self-explanatory cover came just one day after German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that Europe can no longer count on the US, and must take matters into its own hands. That sentiment was echoed by French President Emmanuel Macron, who agreed that “something should be done.”
