The European Council President Donald Tusk, said that the EU and the US President Donald Trump do not share the same views on Russia. “I’m not 100 percent sure that we can say today – ‘we’ means Mr President and myself – that we have a common position, common opinion about Russia,” Tusk said. “Although, when it comes to the conflict in Ukraine it seems that we were on the same line,” he added.
Both officials met in Brussels, where Trump traveled for the NATO summit. They also differed on global trade and climate change. Those issues “remained open,” Tusk said, though an EU official said the sides agreed to set up an EU-US task force on trade.
