"On Brexit, (Trump) expressed concern that jobs in the USA would be lost because of Brexit", a European official, who asked not to be named because the discussions were private, told journalists on Thursday morning in Brussels.

Donald Tusk and Jean-Claude Juncker, European Commission President urged Donald Trump not to abandon the Paris Protocol against climate change, a request that was also made by Pope Francis at a recent meeting with the United States president. He says the European Union's goal is to maintain the unity of the G-7 on "all fronts", most importantly "defending the rules-based global order".

U.S. President Donald Trump vowed on Thursday to crack down on leaks that prompted Manchester police to withhold information from the United States about the investigation into this week's bombing. They found common ground on security and terrorism matters, but a gap remained when it came to relations with Russian Federation, climate change, and trade, Tusk said.

European countries and the U.S. remain divided over several agenda items including climate and trade. However, EU officials believe he has, since taking office, come to a greater appreciation of the value of European integration to US interests.

Cleveland not only won all three games in Boston , but they didn't trail for even a second and compiled a +90 point differential. Irving, who shook off a Game 4 twisted ankle, shot 9 of 15 from the floor and 4 of 8 from 3-point range.

"Intensifying trade cooperation ... is a win-win situation for both sides", the European Union spokeswoman said.

European Union officials said the meeting had been constructive and friendly.

Tusk, a Communist-era dissident who once listed Trump among risks to the world order alongside Russia, China and Islamist violence, said he had tried to impress on the billionaire USA president a need for Transatlantic cooperation to promote "values" like human rights and not just selfish "interests". "My impression is that when it comes to the conflict in Ukraine we are more or less on the same line as President Trump", he said.
