"Mr. Trump is, of course, the Great Boogeyman to the EU"

Mr. Trump is the Great Boogeyman to the All the Leftists and Half the Collusive Right Wing Elites in the World! m/r

Jed Babbin  April 3, 2017

Brussels, Belgium, hasn’t been a stage for leonine courage since King Albert I  decided to fight rather than surrender to the German onslaught of August 1914. When the United Kingdom served divorce papers on the EU last Wednesday, the reactions from the European Union’s chieftains and its members’ heads of state were a combination of fear, anxiety and rage.
EU Commission President Jean-Claude Junker, one of the first to react, seemingly blamed President Trump (who hadn’t won the Republican primary before the Brits voted for Brexit). Mr. Trump is, of course, the Great Boogeyman to the EU, because he has not only praised the Brexit vote but has predicted that other nations will follow suit.
In what Inspector Clouseau would have called “a writ of felous jage,” Junker said he’d campaign for the independence of Ohio and Austin, Texas, if the president continues to promote the idea that other nations should exit the EU.
The letter from British Prime Minister Theresa May to EU President Donald Tusk was mild, firm, and highly respectful of both the U.K. voters’ decision to leave the EU and of the EU itself. May’s letter repeated several times her desire that the terms of the U.K.’s severance from the EU and an agreement on their future relations be negotiated at the same time.
