The President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, told France 2 News on Monday that Turkey is no position to become a member of the European Union, due to their current state of affairs.

“I believe that Turkey, in its current state, is not in a position to become a member any time soon and not even over a longer period,” Juncker said on French television France 2.

Juncker’s comments come just 72 hours after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan suspended his country’s adherence to the human rights guidelines set forth by the European Commission.

Since July 15th, 60,000 people have been arrested, fired, or suspended from their jobs by the Turkish regime; this number is growing everyday.

Earlier today, Turkish authorities issued arrest warrants for 42 journalists that they deemed a threat to the current regime.

#EU wouldn’t take Turkey even if it were. As #Juncker’s EU demonstrated over the course of decades.

NATO is not a gang and NATO isn’t into politics. NATO is a military alliance that in fact acted only 2 times. Greece is NATO and shoots turkish jet fighters that enter greek airspace without being previously allowed to…
