Beware the 'Bridges You Burn' Tusk Warns Poland

European Council President Donald Tusk was on Thursday re-elected for a second term, despite opposition from his home country, Poland.

Initial reports suggest that Tusk, who was been council president since 2014, was re-elected with 27 votes out of 28

The vote took place during the first day of an EU Summit in Brussels.

Speaking at a news conference on Thursday evening, Tusk had philosophical words for all the EU countries, especially his own.

“I prepared my beloved quotation: ‘Be careful of the bridges you burn because once they are gone you can never cross them again’,” he said.
