NIGEL Farage this afternoon branded Jean-Claude Juncker a “fool” after the EU boss extraordinarily threatened to promote the break-up of the US in retaliation for Donald Trump’s support for Brexit.

The former Ukip leader said the chief eurocrat did “not understand” the difference between the European project and the United States after he made the outlandish remarks in a speech today.

Addressing the annual conference of his centre-right European People’s Party (EPP) in Malta, Mr Juncker said he would campaign for Ohio and Texas to leave the US if Mr Trump did not change his tune towards the EU.

The comments provoked controversy globally after being reported by express.co.uk and come at a time when relations between Brussels and Washington are still tense over the Republican’s eurosceptic views.

They are also likely to be met with some bemusement by US diplomats, given that the new administration has done little in recent weeks to draw such significant ire from the Brussels boss.

Reacting to the speech Mr Farage, who has become a close personal friend of the US President, told express.co.uk: “Juncker has made a complete fool of himself.

“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.

“The US is an organically formed nation with a single language and similar culture while the cultural and linguistic differences in the EU are immense.

“If this is what Juncker calls diplomacy, he needs to take a long hard look at himself.”
