A top European Union official branded President Donald Trump selfish and capricious Wednesday as EU leaders gathered to count the likely economic damage U.S. policies might inflict on the bloc and to try to rescue the Iran nuclear deal.Tusk's remarks, just hours before he was to chair a meeting in Bulgaria of the 28 leaders of the world's biggest trading bloc, underscored the widening gulf in EU-U.S. relations.The U.S. move has paved the way for U.S. sanctions that are likely to hit European companies doing business with Iran.The options being discussed include new credit lines for Iran, increased energy cooperation and the use of EU laws to block European companies from caving in to U.S. sanctions.Iran's foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, meanwhile said Wednesday that meetings with EU leaders on salvaging the nuclear deal sent a strong political message but must now be turned into action.
