Reaction in Europe to the results of the 2016 US Presidential Election, and analysis of the implications.

For further analysis and commentary on the result follow this link for information from the major think tanks in Europe.

One of the areas of comment in Europe was the implications of the victory of Donald Trump for the radical right in Europe.

Another perspective for Europe concerned whether a Trump Presidency would reduce or withdraw US military support for Europe and thus force European countries to work more effectively together in security matters.
