Trump to meet EU chiefs in his first overseas trip

BRUSSELS — U.S. President Donald Trump will meet with European Union (EU) chiefs during his first overseas trip later this month since taking office, a spokesman of European Council President Donald Tusk confirmed on Friday.
"Confirmed. @eucopresident and @JunckerEU will meet @realDonaldTrump in Brussels on 25 May," spokesman Preben Aamann tweeted, referring to Tusk and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker.
Days after Trump took office on Jan. 20, Tusk branded the new U.S President's "worrying declarations" as an external threat, which, along with other factors, "make our future highly unpredictable".
"Particularly the change in Washington puts the European Union (EU) in a difficult situation, with the new administration seeming to put into question the last 70 years of American foreign policy," Tusk said in a letter to leaders of EU member states in Jan. 31, ahead of the Valletta Summit.
Trump is scheduled to attend NATO summit in Brussels and G7 summit in Italy later this month.
The White House announced Thursday in a statement that Trump's trip will include additional stops in Saudi Arabia, Israel and the Vatican. (PNA)
