EUROPEAN Union boss Jean-Claude Juncker this afternoon issued a jaw-dropping threat to the United States, saying he could campaign to break up the country in revenge for Donald Trump’s supportive comments about Brexit.
In an extraordinary speech the EU Commission
president said he would push for Ohio and Texas to split from the rest
of America if the Republican president does not change his tune and
become more supportive of the EU.
The remarks are diplomatic dynamite at a time when
relations between Washington and Brussels are already strained over
Europe’s meagre contributions to NATO and the US leader’s open
preference for dealing with national governments.
