EU Commissioner and former Minister for the Environment Phil Hogan delivered a speech touching on the topics of Brexit, populism in the EU, America and US President Donald Trump.
He concluded by quoting the late former US president John F Kennedy, saying:
“Courage — not complacency — is our need today. Leadership — not salesmanship. And the only valid test of leadership is the ability to lead, and lead vigorously.”
