State of the Union (topical debate) (debate)

  Laura Huhtasaari (ID). – Mr President, Madam von der Leyen is wrong. The EU did not succeed; it broke the rules. No matter how much von der Leyen is trying to convince people that she’s better than us politicians critical of the EU, she broke the no-bail-out rule. We didn’t.

A community that does not follow its own rules has no credibility. The EU is a hypocrite. What Europe needs now is immediate tariffs on Chinese imports, following the example of the United States, to save its own industrial production and European way of life. We are the ones who want to follow the rule of law and von der Leyen does not. That needs to be made clear.
