A LEADING Eurocrat has launched a stinging attack on Donald Trump, telling the United States president he is doomed to fail.
European Union Trade Commissioner, Cecilia Malmstrom, came to the defence of the bloc’s policies insisting Mr Trump’s ideas on trade and migration “will not work”.
She said: “Those who in the 21st century think that we can become great again by rebuilding borders, reimposing trade barriers and restricting people’s freedom to move, they are doomed to fail.”
Saying that Brussels had learned from the “dark days”, she added: “Building a wall is not the answer.”
Her remarks come as the new president signs several executive orders, which will limit the amount of refugees and immigrants from Muslim countries from entering the US.
