Jean-Claude Juncker has threatened Donald Trump to stop his anti-EU rhetoric or risk starting a war.

The President of the European Commission warned the United States government to stop stirring up trouble, after Donald Trump praised Brexit.

He spoke with Vice President Mike Pence and said: “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.”

“If we leave them alone — Bosnia Herzegovina, Republika Srpska, Macedonia, Albania, all those countries — we will have war again.” The president of the European Commission launched the attack on the US president by criticising him for encouraging other countries to copy Brexit.

He then branded Trump’s enthusiasm for seeing Britain leave the EU “annoying”, in the interview with the Financial Times.
