Croatian President Zoran Milanovic called out the European Union for treating its members like ‘retarded children’. Milanovic told reporters on Friday that his tolerance for such behavior was approaching its limit. The Croatian president condemned the EU for its efforts to financially penalize Hungary for alleged breaches of rule of law standards in the country. Milanovic echoed frequent Hungarian criticism of the EU, saying the bloc was overreaching in its powers over member states and that this excessive control is what led to Brexit.
