If it runs its course its going to be a great opportunity for Europe to build home grown tech companies. A few years of blockades of facebook, google, apple, uber etc will give enough breathing room for competitors to replace them.
And if it also drives Europe and Russia together Trump will have ended up creating his worst nightmare.

That is what they staked future progress on and that has now been thrown to the side. The EU worries the anglosaxon world will combine against it and has few options to counter such a move. One might be to open trade with Russia again, which will further redefine power relations and drive the parties apart.
