In the United Kingdom, Brexit looms large, with everyone from government ministers to tabloid newspapers frothing daily about the deal that will be struck with the European Union and the effects that it will have.The CEO of Siemens U.K., Jurgen Maier, recently urged British leaders to clarify how trade with the EU will work, urging them to ensure that the country remains in the customs union.Brexit will hurt us a lot more than it will hurt the EU.What could hurt the EU – indeed, threaten its very fabric – is a slew of other challenges, beginning with U.S. President Donald Trump's threats to the health and even survival of the trans-Atlantic alliance, a key pillar of the post-World War II global order. In fact, some EU leaders' approaches to issues like immigration are threatening to create systemic problems that will endure long after Trump has returned to a life of golf courses and bankruptcy courts.
