The arch federalist launched a blistering attack on the elected US President, blaming him for the “deterioration” of the transatlantic alliance, which has “safeguarded the West as we know it”.

He claimed the “only way to protect the liberal world order is for other powers – beginning with the European Union – to step into the breach”.

The former Belgian prime minister accused the Republican firebrand of “renouncing” the traditional role of the US as the “main defender of liberal democracy”.

Writing for Project Syndicate, he said: “Europe has no choice but to act.

“Almost daily, new evidence emerges that Trump remains committed to his ‘America First’ approach, which renounces the traditional US role as the world’s main defender of liberal democracy.

“Right-wing populists and authoritarian regimes, in Europe and elsewhere, will continue seeking to exploit the resulting global leadership vacuum.

“The only way to protect the liberal world order is for other powers – beginning with the EU – to step into the breach.”

He called on EU member states to take responsibility, adding: “The absence of a cogent US president who is willing and able to encourage the EU to make further progress toward integration does not help matters.
