Donald Trump’s US election victory poses risks for the relationship between the European Union and the United States, the EU commission president has warned.

“The election of Trump poses the risk of upsetting intercontinental relations in their foundation and in their structure,” said Juncker, who as head of the EU’s executive is one of Europe’s most powerful political figures.
