AT&T has won approval from the European Commission for its planned $85.4 billion acquisition of Time Warner, the No. 2 U.S. wireless carrier said on Wednesday.
The merger, which still requires approval from the U.S. Department of Justice, is expected to close by the end of the year, AT&T (T) said.
During his election campaign, U.S. President Donald Trump had said that he opposes the merger, and in January a transition official told Reuters that Trump was still against the deal.
The U.S. Federal Communications Commission does not expect to review the deal, a spokesman for the agency said last month.
