In this Federal Trust podcast, John Stevens and Brendan Donnelly discuss the implications of a Trump Presidency for Europe and the United Kingdom. They conclude that if Trump becomes the next American President, then the European Union will be both prepared and able to increase its expenditure on defence. This process of “strategic autonomy” for the European Union is already underway and is likely to gain momentum in the coming years.
