Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The EU will probably try to stay out of the firing line while the main battle between the USA and China heats up - on the principle that even Trump wouldn't be stupid enough to open a second front on the rest of the world while the US/China battle is ongoing and unresolved.

But if the US picks a fight over Iranian economic ties or Russian pipelines then the EU should fight back. MAGA implies that Europe must also seek to be great again (MEGA) and look after its own economic interests first. Brexit and Israel/Palestine remain complicating factors creating disunity and indecision, but these are factors ultimately outside the EU's control.
