Merriam-Webster Dictionary trolls Trump over EU ‘foe’ attack — and they nailed him

Published

The editors of the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, which is considered among the most popular American English dictionaries, just trolled President Trump.

Many Americans – not to mention Europeans – were shocked to hear the U.S. President Sunday morning label the European Union as one of the greatest foes of America.

“I think the European Union is a foe, what they do to us in trade. Now, you wouldn’t think of the European Union, but they’re a foe,” Trump told a CBS News reporter while in Scotland, when asked to name some of his “greatest foes.”

The Merriam-Webster Twitter account sprung into action, literally reassuring the Western World that there was not some special definition of the word “foe” Trump had discovered.

In other words, Merriam-Webster made clear: Trump is again gaslighting the world – and he’s just plain wrong.

Someone else who agrees the EU is not the foe of the United States: the head of the European Union, Donald Tusk, who immediately accused Trump of “spreading fake news.”

"The former vice president has effectively been his party’s leader since his last challenger in the Democratic primary, Bernie Sanders, ended his campaign in April.

On Friday, President Donald Trump retweeted a video from right-wing commentator Glenn Beck, which appeared to question the wisdom of calling George Floyd a "hero" — and concurring with Black GOP commentator Candace Owens, who said it "sickens me" he is being "held up as a martyr."
