European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker is not a fan of Donald Trump. On Thursday, while speaking at a European People’s Party conference in Malta, Juncker blasted President Trump over his support for the United Kingdom's decision to withdraw from the European Union (EU) and threatened to promote secession throughout the United States.

“If he goes on like that,” said Juncker, “I am going to promote the independence of Ohio and Austin, Texas.”

Juncker then attempted to rally support for the EU, urging the 27 remaining member nations to strengthen defense policies.

Speaking in German, Juncker -- who is in favor of a European common military force -- claimed that the EU's common defense is as effective as a "chicken coop."

Farage calls Juncker a fool

Nigel Farage, one of the most outspoken leaders of the Brexit movement, had some harsh words for the European Commission president after he threatened to support the independence of Ohio and Austin, Texas.

“Juncker has made a complete fool of himself,” said Farage in a press release, as reported by Breitbart News. “He clearly does not understand the difference between the EU and the United States of America. One was formed by consent while the other is being imposed.”

Comparing the United States to the EU would be like comparing apples to oranges.

In his press statement, Farage pointed out that America shares a common language and a common culture, while the differences in culture and language throughout Europe are immense.

Is Juncker drunk on his own power?

Prior to becoming the head of the European Commission, Jean-Paul Juncker was the prime minister of Luxembourg, a nation with a total population slighter larger than that of the city of Albuquerque, New Mexico, and a military force of less than a thousand.

The European Commission is perhaps the most powerful entity within the EU, with the ability to overrule the domestic laws of the EU's 27 member states.

According to some within the Trump administration, the responsibility of helming the powerful European Commission is beyond Juncker's ability. Ted Malloch, who is reported to be President Trump's top choice for the position of ambassador to the EU, told the BBC during a recent interview that Juncker needs to go back to being "an adequate mayor" of his tiny city-state.
