EU leaders attack Donald Trump saying ‘we won’t be trampled on’ and warn of impact on the bloc’s future relations with US

European leaders have rounded on Donald Trump as Angela Merkel warned the US and UK that cutting corporation tax would represent a race to the bottom.

French president Francois Hollande accused Mr Trump of a lack of “respect” for the European Union after the US president dismissed the EU as a “vehicle for Germany”.

In a series of stark warnings, Mr Hollande said that there would be no future for European relations with the US “if the future isn’t defined in common”.
