Asked to name the U.S.'s "biggest foe globally" in an interview conducted Saturday and aired Sunday on CBS's "Face the Nation", Trump turned first to the European Union, saying "we have a lot of foes". "Whoever says we are foes is spreading fake news", Tusk, a former Polish prime minister, wrote on Twitter. "Now you wouldn't think of the European Union, but they're a foe", Trump said.
Trump also listed Russian Federation as a "foe in certain respects" and China as "a foe economically".
"I think we have a lot of foes", Trump said, responding to a question put forward by by CBS News' Jeff Glor.
Members of the European Union have historically been some of the United States's oldest allies. "It means that they are competitive", said Trump.
Mr Trump said he had "low expectations" for his meeting on Monday with Russia's Vladimir Putin, which comes after 12 Russians were indicted for alleged hacking during 2016 U.S. elections. Instead, Paul said Trump and other US officials should focus on safeguarding upcoming elections from interference. I respect the leaders of those countries.
Trump also said he hadn't thought of pressing Russian President Vladimir Putin on extraditing the dozen Russian officials charged with hacking Democratic emails. CBS News released excerpts Sunday, hours before Trump was set to fly to Helsinki for the summit.
"Nothing bad is going to come out of" the Helsinki meeting, he said, "and maybe some good will come out".
Other portions of the Trump interview are to air on various CBS news programs on Monday.
