12 Ottobre 2018
Rome, October 12 - Deputy Premier Matteo Salvini said Friday European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker should "shut up" and "stop insulting Italians and their legitimate government". He said the Luxembourg politician "should think about his tax haven Luxembourg". Juncker earlier said that "Italy has not kept its word" when asked about the government's budget in an interview published in Friday's edition of Le Monde. "I have nothing against Italy, on the contrary, I love it," he continued. "They should stop describing us as cold monsters, locked up in a bunker, insensitive to the appeals of the people. "The Italian authorities are free to make their choices over basic income and taxes for businesses. "(But) they still must respect the rules to avoid endangering European solidarity". The two leaders have bee trading barbs over Italy's 2019 budget with Salvini saying he "only talks with sober people".
