European leaders are contacting President Trump’s final decision to pull out of the Iran nuclear offer a most likely catastrophic miscalculation. A person French diplomat is so furious, he even coined a new description of Trump’s view of the entire world: “unisolationism.”
The phrase is the brainchild of one of the most well known European diplomats in the US, François Delattre, France’s ambassador to the United Nations. He told Karen DeYoung of the Washington Put up that the Trump administration’s foreign coverage was a risky “mix of unilateralism and isolationism” that he merged into “unisolationism.”
Seem and Fury
Europe’s response to Trump’s Iran move is just like a scene from Macbeth Act V:
“It is a tale. Informed by an fool, whole of sound and fury, Signifying nothing at all.”
