At Zero Hedge by Tyler Durden --
As prominent MEPs are slamming US President Donald Trump's choice for ambassador to Brussels, RT’s Afshin Rattansi sat down with Ted Malloch for his personal views on the matter.
RT: The EU parliament is somehow trying to veto your appointment as the next ambassador to the European Union. What is your reaction?
Ted Malloch: They must not have got the notice that Donald Trump won the American election.
Of course, ambassadors are chosen by their home countries to represent
those countries and those national interests in foreign capitals, in
this case, in Brussels.
RT: Is it symptomatic of the fact that European politicians don’t really understand their power relations with Washington?
