German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas has branded the US president’s policies toward Europe as QUOTE irritating. Maas said Donald Trump annoys the European countries by describing them as an enemy of the United States or calling NATO into question. He also slammed Trump’s tariffs on European products as absurd. The top German diplomat called on the EU to develop a common foreign and security policy as well as a defense union. Earlier in the day, France also urged the EU to stop relying on the US for its security.
