European unease over Donald Trump's election win was summed up by European Commisson President Jean-Claude Juncker. (SOUNDBITE)(French) EUROPEAN COMMISSION PRESIDENT JEAN-CLAUDE JUNCKER SAYING: "I think that we will waste two years before Mr Trump gets to know the parts of the world he is unaware of." The U.S. president-elect is also planning to drop out of the Paris agreement on slowing climate change which he believes is a hoax. The French Environment minister who helped draw up the deal says that would be catastrophic. (SOUNDBITE)(French) FRENCH ENVIRONMENT MINISTER SEGOLENE ROYAL SAYING: "I dare to believe that such things are campaign promises to please a certain electorate which has not understood that global warming is a reality or to answer the oil and fossil energy lobbies." Trump's also expressed opposition to a pact to restrict Iran's nuclear ambitions. Iran's foreign minister says he wants all parties to stay committed. (SOUNDBITE)(English) IRANIAN FOREIGN MINISTER MOHAMMAD JAVAD ZARIF SAYING: "Quite a lot of people, quite a lot of countries, who have been engaged in this so I think it wil be in the interest of everybody to remain committed in practice." The East End of London was once branded by Trump a no-go area for police because it was so radicalised. Muslims attending Friday prayers said he should come to see for himself. (SOUNDBITE)(English) UNIDENTIFIED MUSLIM MAN SAYING: "This is proof for Trump that we can live together, people of different faiths, and there is no need to be separated." The previously-hostile British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson is among those sounding a positive note on Trump's election win. (SOUNDBITE)(English) UK FOREIGN SECRETARY BORIS JOHNSON SAYING: "I think it's time that we snapped out of general doom and gloom about the result of this election and the collective whinge-o-rama that seems to be going on in some places." Back in the United States protests against Trump's election like this one in New York have continued into a third day.
