Whatever President Trump says and thinks about the relevance of NATO, so far the alliance has coped with crises and criticism.
Despite his own destructive tendencies, the U.S. President may well prove to be the catalyst NATO and the EU need. The two organizations are starting to confront the reality of a post-Atlantic era.
U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Wess Mitchell discussed transatlantic relations at a time of unprecedented challenges for the West.
Paris and Berlin have diametrically opposed views about what the future of the EU should look like.It is hard to see how both views can be reconciled.
The deal between U.S. President Trump and the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is weak and far too general. The diverging interpretations of how to develop the agreement bode poorly for the future.

NATO isn’t providing the security the Polish government has long wanted. Warsaw is not sure the Trump administration will either.
Washington underestimates the strength of attachment in Paris and Berlin to the current Iran deal, as well as the depth of differences between Europe and the United States on how to stabilize the Middle East.

The French president has his work cut out in persuading Trump to appreciate the benefits of multilateralism and the transatlantic relationship.
