EU top dog: “We will need to teach the president-elect what Europe is and how it works”

Donald Trump’s US election victory poses risks for the relationship between the European Union and the United States, the EU commission president has warned.

The president-elect was ignorant of the EU and its workings, Jean-Claude Juncker, told students at a conference in Luxembourg.

“The election of Trump poses the risk of upsetting intercontinental relations in their foundation and in their structure,” said Juncker, who as head of the EU’s executive is one of Europe’s most powerful political figures.

His remarks reflected widespread shock and concern among Europeans at the election of Trump, who among other statements has praised Russian President Vladimir Putin and questioned the principle of collective defence in Nato.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
