In what could be the most ridiculous foreign policy move since Napoleon invaded Russia without considering that he might get stuck there in the Winter, European Union Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker issued a startling threat to President Donald Trump and the United States.

Juncker was delivering a speech to the centre-right European People Party’s (EPP) annual conference in Malta, when he dropped this bomb.

Trending: Kimmel’s Kavanaugh Comments Have Conservatives Clamoring for Cancelation

“Brexit isn’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 the Brexit was taking place and has asked other countries to do the same. If he goes on like that I am going to promote the independence of Ohio and Austin, Texas in the US…

Interestingly, Juncker chose not to criticize the UK, which is actually LEAVING the EU, and soon after making his comments about the U.S. told the gathered crowd that Brexit wasn’t the end and that the EU would be fine.

“Brexit isn’t the end of everything. We must consider it to be a new beginning, something that is stronger, something that is better.” 

The UK’s Express says that Juncker’s comments about President Trump and the USA didn’t appear to be made in jest, but they do leave the possibility that it could have been just a joke. Either way, comments like that are not the way to get the world’s greatest economic power on your side.

While the White House didn’t reply to Juncker’s comments, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) had a simple message for the EU leader, “Don’t mess with Texas.” Cruz told the Washington Examiner that “petty jabs from European leaders are not helpful.” He then added, “My simple message to Juncker is: Don’t mess with Texas. His silly jabs are not productive, undermine the American-EU relationship, and disrespect the sovereign will of the British people who cast their votes and made their wishes quite clear.”

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
