The illustrious nattering nabobs who steer the great Titanic known as the European Union have reacted to the election of Donald Trump just as one might have expected. The video below shows the remarks about Mr. Trump made by Jean-Claude Juncker, the president of the European Commission.
Mr. Juncker, needless to say, has never been elected to any political office except that of Prime Minister of Luxembourg — a world superpower with a population of more than 500,000 people, almost as large as Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Many thanks to Ava Lon for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:
|00:00||During his campaign Mr Trump said, and I told it to our president,|
|00:04||that Belgium was a village somewhere in Europe.|
|00:08||He saw it well from far away, but it doesn’t reflect|
|00:12||the reality. So we will have to teach|
|00:16||the president elect what Europe is all about,|
|00:20||and what its functioning principles are.|
|00:24||He’s asking questions which,|
|00:28||to be honest, have poisonous consequences, because they are challenging NATO and therefore|
|00:36||the model on which European defence is based.|
|00:40||He has an attitude towards the refugees and|
|00:45||non-Americans and non-whites, an attitude|
|00:49||that doesn’t reflect European convictions and feelings.|
|00:53||For my part I believe|
|00:57||we’ll have two years of wasted time, until|
|01:01||Mr. Trump travels around the world that he has no idea about.
