Zwycięstwo Donalda Trumpa i Brexit wywołały w światowej polityce trzęsienia ziemi.

"Never before has so much ridden on the Germans," said Simon Tilford, deputy director of the Centre for European Reform in London. "We're very fortunate that Germany is led now by Merkel, because there is a chance she will step up and do what Europe needs her to do."

Trump throws the future of NATO into doubt. Europe must step up to defend itself

10 November 2016
The Telegraph
It’s not just tanks. The EU’s 28 countries also maintain 12 kinds of tanker aircraft and 19 kinds of fighting aircraft, according to Sophia Besch at the Centre for European Reform. In Eastern Europe, many spare parts are still supplied by Russia. Some countries that do spend more, like Greece, fritter defence budgets away on a vast headcount and military pensions, rather than technology.  When states do procure hardware, they are overwhelmingly protectionist, coddling their own industries at the cost of effectiveness. As Ms Besch puts it, the whole system is full of “duplication and redundancy”.

Another potential danger, according to economist Simon Tilford, the deputy director of London-based Centre for European Reform, comes from the veiled threats Trump has uttered towards the independence of the Federal Reserve, the US central bank. “You clearly see a scenario where instead of moderating Trump, the House and the Senate fall behind him, and there the implications for Europe could be pretty serious,” he said.

Here's the stark impact that Trump's victory will have on Europe's fractured politics

But Ian Bond, director of foreign policy at the Centre for European Reform, told CNBC via phone that attempts by European nationalist politicians to claim they – and Trump - are outsiders from the political establishment is a misleading representation – even if effective. According to Bond, "To portray Trump's victory as a revolt against the elite is misleading. Trump's father was an enormous property developer and he has risen by exploiting the system himself."

Obawy w Europie wzbudziły też jego wypowiedzi o możliwym wycofaniu się USA z NATO i nazwanie tej organizacji "przestarzałym" sojuszem, który kosztuje USA "majątek". Od tego czasu zdążył wycofać się z tych słów, zapewniając, że "całkowicie popiera NATO", jednak zdaniem ekspertów jego słowa wyrządziły szkodę. "Jego sympatia dla Putina i transakcyjne podejście do obrony Europy powinno być powodem do niepokoju dla każdego państwa w Europie, które w kwestii obrony polega na NATO" - zaznacza Sophia Besch z think tanku Centre for European Reform.

"It is true, everything seems possible these days," said Agata Gostyńska, EU Institutions research fellow at the Centre for European Reform, a pro-EU think-tank. "But on the other hand, there is some pattern with populists. They are really sharp at gaining power when on the outside, but when they get into power and are constrained by real politics they tend not be so successful."

Onzekerheid over Trump brengt EU verder in vertwijfeling

Volgens Rem Korteweg van het Centre for European Reform in Londen maakt Trumps 'transactionele mentaliteit' het goed denkbaar dat Trump deals gaat sluiten met 'andere stevige mannen'. Dat speelt leiders als Poetin, Erdogan en Assad in de kaart. 'Dan komen we helemaal terug in een negentiende-eeuws model van invloedssferen, waarin instellingen en multilaterale organisaties geen rol spelen.'

Nevertheless Sophia Besch, a research fellow at the Centre for European Reform, said: "Europe's security is at stake in these US elections. Trump has publicly questioned the solidarity commitment that is at the heart of the NATO alliance, declaring US support conditional on Europeans increasing their own defence budgets. His proximity to Putin and transactional approach to defending Europe should be of deep concern to every European state that depends on NATO’s protection."

In a podcast released yesterday, researchers at the Centre for European Reform said Clinton would likely follow Obama in favoring regional deals rather than a bilateral pact with the UK. They said US politicians are worried Brexit will distract the UK and EU from other matters such as fighting terrorism, and make it harder for US busineses and investors to access the region.
