Boom! Informal meeting Salzburg. Boom! Managing Brexit. Bring it on, says the European council president
With the kind of bombast usually reserved for action movie trailers, the president of the European council, Donald Tusk, announced his plans for the autumn this week, with a Hollywood blockbuster-style trailer posted to social media.
With an urgent soundtrack of crashing drums, Tusk is seen in quick cuts with a variety of world leaders including Emmanuel Macron, Donald Trump and Theresa May, as important forthcoming engagements such as the “informal meeting EU leaders in Salzburg” are trailed.
