US President Donald Trump cannot stand EU Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager. In an interview with TV channel Fox, Trump let it be known that he thinks that, even though he did not call her by name, she hates the United States, because she constantly denounces American companies.
According to Trump, there is “a woman in the EU” who makes it impossible to do business in two directions. In the eyes of the American, Vestager is carrying out a crusade against tech giants such as Google and Facebook, who would abuse their market power.
Incidentally, Silicon Valley should not become too enthusiastic after Trump’s speech. He also said that the US may go after Google and Facebook.
“Maybe we will,” said the president.
