Margaritis Schinas responds to Trump comments by quoting Sophocles

Comments by the United States president Donald Trump describing the European Union as a “foe” in terms of trade have brought swift responses by several officials, European Commission spokesman Margaritis Schinas said on Monday.

Asked to add his personal response to that of other EU officials, Schinas said the only thing he could think of is a verse Antigone says in Sophocles’s tragedy of the same name, which he quoted as “I was born to have friends, not enemies.”
