European Commission President tells Trump to stop supporting Brexit or he will rally for Texas secession
On March 30 the inept and often viewed alcoholic head of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, attempted to both admonish and threaten President Donald Trump over his support of the UK’s leaving the union by stating he would personally promote for the secession of states like Texas and Ohio.
Speaking at a conference of the center-right European Peopleâ€™s Party in Malta, the titular head of the European Union’s governing body sought to find scapegoats for Britain’s decision to leave the EU, which was officially done yesterday when they handed a signed copy of Article 50 to authorities.
The EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has called on US President Donald Trump to stop applauding Brexit and become more supportive of the block. He threatened to hit back if Trump does not change his tune.
â€śBrexit isnâ€™t the end. A lot of people would like it that way, even people on another continent where the newly elected US president was happy that Brexit was taking place and has asked other countries to do the same,â€ť Juncker said on Thursday during a conference of the center-right European Peopleâ€™s Party in Malta.
â€śIf he goes on like that I am going to promote the independence of Ohio and Austin, Texas in the US,â€ť he added.

Juncker and the rest of the European Commission are floundering in their attempts to stop the wave of populism and nationalism that is sweeping through Europe and the West, and which is threatening to take down the entire coalition through the possible elections of anti-euro and anti-eu candidates in both France and Italy. Â And while this populist movement was also instrumental in bringing to power Donald Trump in last November’s U.S. elections, the vote that brought forth Brexit was a completely home grown idea led in part by former EU parliamentarian Nigel Farage.
The primary issues that continue to plague the EU are their inabilities to deal with bankrupt countries within their coalition nine years after the global financial crisis, and the rejection of countries not wanting to give up their sovereignty as the EC forges a path towards political control over Europe. Â And these have nothing to do with the U.S. or with Donald Trump, but with individuals like Jean-Claude Juncker who is too incompetent to deal with his own house in Europe, and the festering problems that have finally come to a boil.
