Juncker threatens to break up US in response to Trump's support for Brexit
European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker hit back at US President Donald Trump’s support for Brexit, saying that he would champion American states that wanted to secede from the union.
"The newly elected US president was happy that Brexit was taking place and was asking other countries to do the same," Juncker told delegates from his pan-EU Christian Democrat group in Malta.
"If he goes on like that, I’m going to promote the independence of Ohio and the exit of Texas," he added.
According to Juncker, Brexit isn’t the end of everything, as they must consider it to be a new beginning.
