President Donald Trump has dubbed the EU, China, and Russian Federation "foes" of the United States, 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.
"Well, I think we have a lot of foes". "I think the European Union is a foe, what they do to us in trade".
He added: "You wouldn't think of the European Union, but they're a foe".
"Russia is foe in certain respects".
