In Europe, trepidation over Trump

In this past week's Maine Sunday Telegram, I have a commentary piece from my trip to Europe last month sponsored by the German Marshall Find of the United States.

In the audiences Sewell Chan and myself spoke with in Brussels, Paris, and Belgrade, concern was focused on the prospect of a Donald Trump presidency, a potentially cataclysmic event they'd previously been assured could never occur, just as American experts had told them the New York billionaire could never win the Republican Party nomination.

What were their specific concerns and what feedback did I have? It's all in the piece.

My last story from Europe was this POLITICO Magazine piece on Viktor Orban's Hungary.
