Donald Trump is like a really cold shower, he presses the button and suddenly all sorts of people who should know better are soaked and shivering in the icy water spray. Suddenly, all those puffed-up, pompous prats who inhabit the golden towers of Brussels have been reminded that their delusions of grandeur are just that - delusions! The 'Donald' doesn't give a stuff for any of them. Quite apart from the non-existent treaty with the Iranian thugs, liars and murderers who promptly used the inflow of US/EU cash to pay for their Revolutionary Guards to spread Shia domination, the Iranians spun the talks out for so long they now possess the wherewithal to produce atomic weaponry when they are good and ready. After eight years of 'Obaman' day-dreaming and European arse-licking, Trump has injected a good dose of real-politik.
Much was made of Trump's ungracious behaviour when he picked some dandruff off the shoulders of 'mini'-Macron's suit but what he really did, in effect, was box the little lad's ears and tell him to grow up! Now, 'mini'-Macron, the even mini-er Merkel, Juncker, Oettinger and all the rest of the EU fanatics will have to concentrate what passes for their minds and decide whether they want to stay faithful to Hassan Rouhani (such a reliable friend!) or cling to Donald's skirts! No doubt they will be aware that to all intents and purposes NATO is dead even if it is not buried, partly, of course, because none of the Europeans ever paid the going rate for it! In the meantime, Russia under the leadership of a 'wannabe' Czar desperate to earn the title 'Vladimir the Great' continues to push and squeeze at the edges of western Europe to test the weakest spots. So the EU pipsqueaks leaders need to think very carefully before they go against 'The Donald', an unpredictable man not necessarily given to deep thought before he acts!
