FANS OF FLANDERS: Trump's "alternative" visit to Brussels

25/05/201711:53

Videozone - 25/5/17 - Donald Trump called Brussels a hellhole in the past. This inspired our colleague Sofie Engelen of Fans of Flanders to present Trump an alternative stay in Brussels. Forget the EU, forget the Royal Palace, forget NATO: what about a new haircut, the female Manneken Pis, a game of golf and staying with a local in Molenbeek? (courtesy Fans of Flanders)

Videozone - Trump discovers the European building 25/5/17 - Donald Trump continued his two-day agenda in Brussels with a visit to the new European building in the European quarter. He was welcomed by the permanent President of the European Council Donald Tusk. Officially, there is no official agenda about what is being discussed with Tusk, Commission President Juncker, Parliament President Tajani and Foreign Affairs Representative Mogherini, but it's bound to treat the Paris Climate Deal and international trade. "The EU wants to tell Trump that the climate accord is not a threat, but an opportunity", the VRT's EU watcher Leen De Witte says. Trump still hasn't made up his mind about whether ot not to accept the climate deal.

"Trump not Welcome March" targets the president

24/05/201718:15

Videozone - 24/5/17 - A "Trump not Welcome" march got underway from the Brussels North Station around 5PM - though protesters claimed they have nothing against Trump himself, but rather against his policies. Organisers asked participants to wear a pussy hat to highlight women's rights or rather the lack of it. The demonstration attracted demonstrators from various fields - climate, peace and women's rights and equal rights campaigners. Organisers had hoped for 10,000 protesters, but it looked as if they had to be content with some 6,000 (according to police).
