Unfortunately this narrow minded attitude is partly the reason the EU is so poor at making trade deals. Trade deals shouldn’t be seen as a confrontation when trying to achieve something that is beneficial to both parties. It’s another good reason that the UK left, and will also be the reason the UK strikes more trade deals in the long term. The EU purely exists to thwart free trading capitalism and it’s this attitude that will eventually lead to its downfall.
The EU has 40 free trade deals with 70 countries, how many do you think they would have if they were not so "poor at making trade deals"?

Who do you think is "not poor" at making trade deals?
The US?; 14 deals with 20 countries.
Japan?; deals with 14 countries.
China?; has 16 free trade deals
South Korea?; has 16 free trade deals
