Trump warned his anti-EU stance could start war


I mentioned in my comments to the article published by BBC on Trump’s approval of Keystone XL pipeline by BBC that the timing for this project is not quite right. It appears that the following CNBC confirms some of my views.

CNBC reports that the president of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, has warned the U.S. president that calling for other EU members to leave the union could lead to war in the Balkans.

In an interview with the Financial Times, Juncker criticised President Donald Trump for encouraging other countries to copy Brexit and called this enthusiasm “annoying”.

“Do not say that, do not invite others to leave, because if the European Union collapses, you will have a new war in the western Balkans,” Juncker told Vice President Mike Pence when he visited Brussels earlier this year.

“If we leave them alone — Bosnia-Herzegovina, Republika Srpska, Macedonia, Albania, all those countries — we will have war again.”

Juncker also said that the U.S. president is scaring Europeans with his rhetoric, the Financial Times reported.

“For the first time in postwar history we have an American president giving the impression he is not interested in European affairs.”

I can only add that within a very short period of time, Trump has demonstrated that his inability to perform as the President of the United States may potentially lead to a catastrophe.

The first 100 days period is only half way through. Nevertheless, Trump has managed to make so much damage which all previously served Presidents combined would never be able to  make
