Dutch PM prefers a ‚gift‘ to a loan for European coronavirus support

He said he would also prefer setting up a new support fund rather than having countries use the European Stability Mechanism (ESM).

„If you do (support) from the ESM, then it’s a loan and a loan must be paid back,“ he said. „If you do it as a gift, then it’s: ‚Listen, you guys have been hit hard, but together with a number of wealthier countries, we’re prepared to bear the direct costs of the coronavirus crisis‘.“

„Schwer krank oder sternhagelvoll?“

Rutte sagte dem flämischen Sender VRT, „soviel er wisse“, leide Juncker „seit geraumer Zeit an einem Rückenproblem“. Im Juni hatte der EU-Kommissionspräsident dem irischen Parlament nach sichtbaren Schwierigkeiten beim Treppensteigen gesagt, das komme von Problemen mit dem Ischiasnerv, die er seit einem Autounfall habe. Der britischen Boulevardzeitung Sun sagte er darüber hinaus, es wäre ihm lieber, wenn er stattdessen betrunken wäre.
