Martin Schulz, the head of Germany’s Social Democrats, wants to push for ever-closer European integration and turn the EU into a ‘United States of Europe’ by 2025,  Politico. eu reports.

“I want there to be a constitutional treaty to create a federal Europe,” Schulz said Thursday during a speech at a party convention in Berlin.

According to him, the drafting process of such a constitutional treaty should involve citizens across the Continent. Once drafted, it would “be presented to the member states, and those who are against it will simply leave the EU”.

As Euobserver reports, Schulz argued that only a reinforced EU could act as a bulwark to right-wing nationalists, who have made gains in Germany, Austria, Denmark, Finland, France and the Netherlands recently.
