LONDON (Reuters) - Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni said on Thursday that a more insular trading stance from the United States under President Donald Trump is an opportunity for the European Union.
"If we have a weaker commitment from the U.S. globally, this is an opportunity for Europe, as we would be the biggest remaining trading bloc."
"If the U.S. steps back, there would be a void that we could fill," he told a audience in London.
