President Trump’s arrival in Brussels on Thursday marks the fourth leg of his first trip abroad as leader of the free world. He met the heads of European Union institutions in Brussels prior to attending a NATO summit meeting at its headquarters later in the day.
Trump was warmly greeted by European Council President Donald Tusk, a former Polish prime minister who presides as chairman of the 28-country European Union. European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker will attend the talks as well.
Aware of that Trump publicly supported the U.K.’s recent “Brexit” decision to pull out of the EU, its leaders will likely urge him to continue Washington’s longstanding support of their continental union, which was created in 1993. They will also probably ask him to support free trade policies and climate change issues.
