Von der Leyen takes veiled swipe at TrumpIn fact, the list goes on and on. During her first State of the Union address in the European Parliament since taking office, European Commission President, Ursula von der Leyen, apparently sought to take a swipe at Donald Trump's policies but without mentioning him specifically.

When it comes to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, Iran nuclear deal, the EU insists Trump only has the power to try and put pressure on Tehran unilaterally. 

During a debate following Von der Leyen's State of the Union address, some lawmakers accused the EU of having weak foreign policy. Domestic policies, amid the coronavirus pandemic, were also called into question. 

Many legislators expressed their full support for the EU project but others gave very grim assessments regarding the current state of the bloc. They were critical of Britain's handling of ongoing trade talks with the EU and also Trump's efforts to destabilise. 

According to many analysts, the single biggest thing fuelling optimism that the Iran nuclear deal can be preserved and built upon, and that EU-US policies regarding a whole range of other issues can again be aligned, is the fact that it's looking increasingly likely Donald Trump will not be re-elected in November.
