European Council President Donald Tusk arrives for the second day of a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels, Belgium, July 12, 2018.

When "CBS Evening News" anchor Jeff Glor asked Trump who is his "biggest foe globally right now", Trump named the European Union, members of which are some of America's oldest and closest global allies. "Whoever says we are foes is spreading fake news", Tusk, a former Polish prime minister, wrote on Twitter.

The president went on to add that Russian Federation and China are also on his list of adversaries.

"Russia is foe in certain respects".

President Donald Trump has dubbed the EU, China, and Russian Federation "foes" of the USA, speaking from his Scottish golf course, where he is taking a break after the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit and before meeting Vladimir Putin in Helsinki. But that doesn't mean they are bad. "I respect the leaders of those countries", Trump said. "You're supposed to be fighting for someone and then that someone gives billions of dollars to the one you're, you know, guarding against".

Trump repeated his previous assertion that the European Union has "really taken advantage of us on trade".

The comments come as Trump continues to target the European Union with tariffs on aluminum and steel imports and criticize North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members over defense spending.
