(London Daily Mail) EU chief Jean-Claude Juncker has attacked the US for turning its back on its allies and says Europe must take America’s place as global leader after Donald Trump’s decision to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal.

The EU Commission President said America ‘no longer wants to cooperate’ with other parts of the world and is turning away from friendly relations ‘with a ferocity that can only surprise us.’

Trump has sparked fury in Tehran by withdrawing from the accord with politicians burning the US flag and the country’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei warning that ‘America can’t do a damn thing’.
