Trump’s NATO, E.U. comments fuel fears of a transatlantic split

European leaders took a tough line on President-elect Donald Trump’s comments that the European Union is bound for breakup and NATO is obsolete, raising the prospect of an unprecedented breach of transatlantic relations once Trump comes to office.
The EU's government by "experts" model was in real trouble before Trump raised the point.  As for NATO, he is trying to make the alliance more robust and viable by giving those in Europe who have been spending on vote buying schemes to pony up and pat their fair share of defense.  The is more of his "Art of the Deal" diplomacy.
