Jean-Claude Juncker delivered his lates t State of the Union speech in Strasbourg on Wednesday.

The European Commission president set out his vision for the future of the Continent ahead of the 2019 European election and in the midst of ongoing debate about the future of the European Union, which will soon be reduced to 27 members with the departure of the United Kingdom, and which faces a rising populist tide.

After the speech, the European Parliament also voted in favor of a motion declaring that Hungary is at risk of breaching the EU’s core values, triggering a disciplinary process that could exacerbate deep divisions within the bloc.
