Matthew Karnitschnig is the Chief Correspondent for the Europe issue of Politico. He says: "Europe is too weak and divided to fend for itself. It should do everything it can to safeguard the relationship with Washington."
Shi Ming is a journalist from Beijing who has lived in Berlin for years. He says: "There won't be any clear-cut showdown between China and the US over the Pacific region, instead, we will see countless agonizing quarrels."
Malte Lehming is a Senior Opinion Editor at Der Tagesspiegel, He says: "It is still not clear what Trumps foreign-policy priorities are. But strengthening Nato and committing the US president to the rules of law are the best strategies for now."
