Analysis: Trump and his envoys have lost Europe’s confidence

So it’s perhaps no great surprise that several of his ambassadors to several European nations have behaved in ways that are not exactly diplomatic, in the traditional sense. Earlier this week, it emerged that Pete Hoekstra, the US ambassador to the Netherlands, hosted an event at his embassy for Forum for Democracy (FvD), a far-right, anti-immigration and anti-EU party that is gaining popularity in the country. Dutch magazine De Groene Amsterdammer, which first reported on the event, described it as a fundraiser for the party. A US state department spokesperson told CNN that this event was not a fundraiser, but a “town hall discussion and Q&A session” with FvD. They added that during his stint in the Netherlands, Hoekstra has hosted “15 town halls with eight different parties,” suggesting that this event with FvD was nothing unusual. Not everyone agrees. “Hosting a political party event, fundraiser or not, you can see it as political support from the United States for a particular point of view. Normally, diplomacy is about government-to-government interactions, not promoting particular viewpoints and giving the impression of having political allies,” said Marietje Schaake, a former Dutch MEP and international policy director at the Stanford Cyber Policy Center. ‘);$vidEndSlate.removeClass(‘video__end-slate–inactive’).addClass(‘video__end-slate–active’);}};CNN.autoPlayVideoExist =

of the day,” Schaake added. Hoekstra is just one of a number of divisive ambassadors appointed in Europe by Trump who appear to be eroding trans-Atlantic ties, enraging their hosts and representing Trump’s personal interests in Europe. “Europe has traditionally been a place where political appointees go, but usually it’s understood that they represent the US government,” said Tyson Barker, a former US State Department official in the Bureau of European and Eurasian Affairs. “What we have seen since 2016 is people representing Trump and his personal interests, rather than the US.” CNN recently reported that Woody Johnson, Trump’s ambassador to UK, was being investigated after allegations that he’d used his position to lobby for the British Open golf tournament to be held on one of Trump’s golf courses. Asked about the specific allegations, Johnson did not deny them and called it an “honor of a lifetime” to serve as ambassador. After the publication of CNN’s report, Johnson tweeted, “I have followed the ethical rules and requirements of my office at all times.” Trump said he “never spoke to Woody Johnson about doing that.”Johnson has also been open in his support of Brexit, suggesting it presents an opportunity for the UK and the US to grow closer, claiming this would strengthen Britain’s hand when dealing with the EU. This pattern has also been noticed in Germany, where former ambassador Richard Grenell waded into territory that diplomats traditionally avoid, such as tweeting that “German companies doing business in Iran should wind down operations immediately,” within hours of starting the job. Trump’s hard line on Iran has been particularly difficult for the EU to swallow, as the nuclear deal from which Trump withdrew was originally signed under the auspices of the EU, its most significant triumph on the geopolitical stage. Grenell also gave an interview to right-wing outlet Breitbart, where he said he wanted “to empower other conservatives throughout Europe.” Given the role of a diplomat is to deal with whichever government represents the country they are in, to speak so unambiguously about your political preference is highly unusual. Under Trump’s presidency, the US has also strengthened its relationship with EU countries that are generally considered to be delinquent member states, threatening the bloc’s unity. Most notably, Trump praised Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban during his trip to the White House last year. Orban “has done a tremendous job in so many different ways. Highly respected, respected all over Europe. Probably, like me, a little bit controversial, but that’s OK,” Trump said at the time. Orban spent the past decade presiding over assaults on his nation’s courts, academic institutions, central bank and press. The EU is currently investigating these assaults and could yet punish Orban by removing some of his rights at an EU level. The message has been well and truly received in Brussels. “Are there any EU-US relations left? The official political line is whatever the differences, there is more that unites us. But if you look at it properly, there are only divisions,” said one senior EU official. “Under Trump, it seems they never miss a chance to try and undermine the EU. They take radical action in areas of joint interest without consulting us, such as on Iran, moving the [US] embassy [to] Jerusalem. There is a growing sense that we simply cannot rely on the US in the same way as before,” the official added. In the eyes of many in Europe, the ambassadors appointed to key nations by Trump are consistent with a larger shift in EU-US relations. “Trump and his diplomats have given the impression that they want to punish the EU for some reason or another,” one German diplomat told CNN. “There is a huge internal debate over whether we can collaborate with the US anymore, even if [Joe] Biden wins, because they are just too unreliable.” The diplomat believes that the decline in relations began prior to Trump taking office. “In my experience, many of the younger politicians now in DC have a view of foreign policy shaped by 9/11 and the war on terror, not World War Two. They don’t really care about Germany or Europe anymore.” Barker explained that this new view of the US has changed what kind of relationship Europeans now want from the transatlantic partnership. “The transition from Bush to Obama to Trump has solidified the European view that America can pivot dramatically every eight years. The question is, how do you safeguard against this when you know the next President could be Kid Rock?”

President, we started to see it as an opportunity to be more independent in certain areas like defense and geopolitics. You can see already how we are taking a dramatically different approach to China, Russia and Iran than the US.” None of this is to say that the EU is seeking to drift from the US, but many feel now isn’t a bad time for Europe to start thinking more about itself and its place in the world. “I hope the relationship can be repaired, of course. The transatlantic relationship is robust. But the ability for the two sides to work together, both bilaterally and as a united front on the global stage, has been undermined by the Trump administration,” said Schaake. “What that’s done is made the case for a more autonomous, actively geopolitical EU much more of a priority.” CNN contacted the US State Department to ask if it agreed or disagreed with the assertion that American diplomacy under this administration has treated the EU as less of an ally than before. It declined to comment. The crux of the problem for many in Brussels is a growing sense that maintaining or strengthening the transatlantic alliance is less of a priority for US than American interests elsewhere in the world. There is a perception that DC now wants a more transactional relationship with Brussels, which would ultimately see Europeans defer to US priorities on trade, NATO funding and diplomacy For a continent that has for decades relied on its bigger brother as it recovered from some of the bloodiest wars in history, that presents a potentially alarming new reality: This is it, you really are on your own.

World·NewSeven people were in custody on Saturday after a stabbing outside the former Paris offices of satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo, including the suspected assailant, authorities said.Man and woman working at documentary production company were attackedThe Associated Press · Posted: Sep 26, 2020 10:56 AM ET | Last Updated: September 26A police officer stands near the Opera Bastille where a suspect in Friday’s stabbing attack was arrested in Paris. (Gonzalo Fuentes/Reuters)Seven people were in custody on Saturday after a stabbing outside the former Paris offices of satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo, including the suspected assailant, authorities said. Counterterrorism authorities are investigating what officials called an Islamic extremist attack linked to Charlie Hebdo, which lost 12 employees in an al-Qaeda attack in 2015. The weekly, which routinely mocks religious and other prominent figures, recently republished caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad that outraged many Muslims.The suspected assailant in Friday’s stabbing had been arrested a month ago for carrying a screwdriver but was not on police radar for Islamic radicalization, Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin said. He said the screwdriver was considered a weapon but did not explain why. The suspect arrived in France three years ago as an unaccompanied minor, apparently from Pakistan, but his identity was still being verified, the minister said. This image shows the building where one of the suspects was living in Pantin, a suburb of Paris. (AFP via Getty Images) Seven others were detained in the aftermath of Friday’s attack, but one has been released, according to judicial officials. Five of those in custody were detained in the Paris suburb of Pantin in a residence where the suspect is believed to have lived, a police official said. Two people were wounded in Friday’s attack, when a woman and a man working at a documentary production company had stepped outside for a smoke break. The interior minister conceded that security was lacking on the street where Charlie Hebdo was once headquartered, and he ordered special protection for all “symbolic sites,” noting in particular Jewish sites around the Yom Kippur holiday this weekend. A Jewish grocery store was targeted days after the Charlie Hebdo newsroom massacre, in what authorities say were co-ordinated attacks.

Boston Celtics fight off elimination in Game 5 of Eastern Conference finals vs. Miami Heat

What I’m Hearing: Jeff Zillgitt breaks down what both teams were saying following the Lakers Game 4 win over the Nuggets to take a 3-1 series lead and why this is familiar territory for Denver.

USA TODAYLAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — The Boston Celtics finally won a “home” game.And they needed it.Facing elimination, the Celtics defeated the Miami Heat 121-108 in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals on Friday. The Heat own a 3-2 series lead, and Game 6 is Sunday (7:30 p.m. ET, ESPN).The Celtics outscored the Heat 70-50 in the second half and leaned on their young stars. Forward Jayson Tatum, 22, scored 17 of his game-high 31 points in the third quarter, and had 10 rebounds and six assists.Boston forward Jaylen Brown, 23, scored 18 of his 28 points in the second half.Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart speaks with forward Jayson Tatum during the second half of Game 5 against the Miami Heat. (Photo: Kim Klement, USA TODAY Sports)”Our deal was to come out and play, come out and compete, give it our best shot,” Celtics coach Brad Stevens said. “I thought we played pretty well in the second half. But we’re going to have to do it again and again because of the position we’re in. “When we don’t get caught up in that other crap, we’re trying to be our best. We care about competing. We care about representing our team and our organization well. We care about each other. That’s why you compete.”Center Daniel Theis finally got the better of his counterpart, Miami’s Bam Adebayo, with 15 points, 13 rebounds and three blocks.“We need him to provide what he provides,” Stevens said. “He was great in the middle of the zone. He caught it twice and scored. He was great there on the glass on both ends. We need him to be good. We got a lot out of that center position tonight. That’s important.”Boston outscores Miami 70-50 in the 2nd half… 👀 the BEST 2nd half buckets from the @celtics in their Game 5 comeback W!Game 6: Sunday – 7:30pm/et, ESPN pic.twitter.com/JWRoIN4GAU— NBA (@NBA) September 26, 2020While all games are played at a neutral site here at the Disney Wide World of Sports Complex, there is a designated home team based on seed, and the Celtics last won a “home” game on Aug. 19 in the first round of the playoffs.The home team gets the raucous introductions just before tip-off, and the Celtics get to hear the beginning of “Crazy Train” and “I’m Shipping Up to Boston” at the start of the game. But nothing can recreate 18,000 fans at TD Garden for a playoff game.“Obviously, as much as the NBA has tried to make the home stuff matter, it just doesn’t,” Stevens said earlier in the series. “It has no impact, unfortunately. I’m not sure that we’ve played in a home game where the home team has won in three weeks. At the end of the day, it’s just guys playing in between those lines and who executes better and who plays the whole 48 or 53 or 58 minutes, or however long it takes, better.”Basketball ‘just a glimpse’ of who he is: Celtics star Jaylen Brown shows maturity, leadership beyond his 23 years’Stats don’t mean anything’: All-Star Trae Young determined to make Atlanta Hawks a winnerThe Celtics meandered through the first half without much purpose, settling for 3-pointers and playing apathetic defense.They trailed 60-51 early in the third quarter. But then it began to click for Boston. It started forcing the action on both ends – driving to the bucket looking for the best shot and defending with urgency.The Celtics went on a 20-3 run and took a 71-63 lead with 5:39 left in the third. They shot 54.2% from the field and made 11 of 12 free throws.By the midway point of the fourth quarter, Boston owned a 107-91 advantage.Tatum scored 20-plus points in the second half for the second consecutive game, and his third-quarter performance helped Boston take control.”Just finding my rhythm,” Tatum said. “Playing within the system, playing within the game. Knowing I need to be aggressive, try not to force it, but know I got to get myself going and make plays, whether it be for myself or other guys. Just build off that.”Boston overcame a 12-point first-half deficit, its largest comeback when facing elimination in 25 years, according to ESPN Stats & Info. “Boston played great in that second half,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “They deserved and earned what they got. We understand how tough it is to win in the playoffs. We did not compete hard enough defensively, and we paid the price for that. But you do have to credit Boston. They played with great force, particularly off the dribble.”Miami’s Goran Dragic scored a team-high 23 points, and Jimmy Butler had 17 points, eight rebounds and eight assists. The Heat shot just 19.4% on 3-pointers, and were outrebounded 50-38 as Boston dominated the paint.”They were playing harder than we were, which we all knew,” Butler said. “We’ve just got to correct that. That’s where it starts for us. Any time anybody is playing harder than we are, we are not playing our best basketball. I think a lot of it for us comes from how hard we play, how together we play, and we’ve got to get back to doing that.” AutoplayShow ThumbnailsShow CaptionsLast SlideNext SlideFind New & Used CarsNew CarsUsed CarsofPowered by Cars.com
