What will Trump's election mean for EU-US relations?

France 24 video

Donald Trump has been voted in as the next US president. During his campaign, he said he would pull the US out of NATO which he saw as obsolete, blamed trade deals for "sucking jobs" out of the US, promised an "America first" policy, closer relations with Russia and vowed to tear up the COP21 climate change agreement on limiting carbon emissions. Our panel discusses what Trump’s election could mean for the future of EU-US relations.
