Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The possible effects of the advent of the Trump administration on relations between the European Union and the United States have become an object of attention in the public and specialist discourse, not only because of the obvious new elements that the figure of the current president brings, but also due to the specific criticisms made by Trump against this crucial issue in transatlantic relations. The aim of this chapter is to interpret the current state of relations between the European Union and the United States through the tools offered by the theories of the security community, in order to understand if and how much the transformations related to the identity and value aspects of the new Presidency can affect the continuities that emerge from an analysis focused mainly on the material aspects of the relationship. In doing so, we will consider the hypothesis that the "populist" opposition to the effects and principles of a neoliberal socio-economic model - of which the transatlantic community has been one of the main places of elaboration and promotion - involves a possible transformation of the identity of the transatlantic community. The possible, paradoxical result of this metamorphosis would be a transatlantic identity that takes up the polemic against experiments of reorganization of political communities which is the European Union (and the dense network of regimes and ideational ties with the United States) the common connotation of the new political realities being established on both sides of the Atlantic.
