Takeaway from #MSC2019: The weather is far better than the mood.
The mood is dominated by Trump: after denial, anger and negotiations, now the transatlantic community is somewhere between depression and acceptance.
Also noteworthy: the hope that the transatlantic crisis would unite Europe, turning it into a power able to compete on the global stage, has been blown away. Fact that Macron cancelled joint appearance with Merkel is a symbol for the decline of this European dream.
To clarify: I still think cooperation and coordination between the willing and able in Europe remains key for the continent‘s future. But we need to work on the methods. What worked on the economic side of integration doesn’t work with regards to foreign & security policy.
