Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It's not like we haven't been told before. And before.
And Josh Marshall who called it last December:

Trump's (and Putin's) Plan to Dissolve the EU and NATO. - TPM - Josh Marshall

Trump and Bannon clearly want to create a nativist world order based on the US, Russia and states that want to align with them. The EU and NATO are only obstacles to that goal.

Marshall's remark is similar to your conclusion:

An America eager to break up the EU seems more likely to inject new life into the union.
