    According to German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas, the European Union has to reform its members and governance to take a more united stand amid disagreements over trade with the United States.

    In an all-encompassing speech on Germany’s future European policy, Maas has stated that President Donald Trump’s office has created a whole new set of challenges for Europeans, adding that the EU should react “robustly” when the US questions its values and interests.

    “We Europeans have to act as a conscious counterweight when the US crosses red lines. Where the US government aggressively throws into question our values and interests, we have to react more robustly,” he said.

    As for the challenges posed by the Trump administration, Maas named the withdrawal from the Paris climate deal, Washington’s pullout from the Iran nuclear deal, as well as potential secondary sanctions against European partners and protectionist policies.
