Trump, Macron may clash on European defense in Paris talks

German Bundeswehr soldiers of the 122th Infantry Battalion take part in a farewell ceremony in Oberviechtach Germany Thursday Jan. 19 2017

At that meeting, Trump would not say whether he believed Putin or U.S. intelligence agencies about their conclusions about Russia's interference with the 2016 presidential election.

Coming just days after Macron called for a "real European army" to reduce dependence on the United States, and with the vocal support of senior figures in Brussels, the coalition agreement will once again raising the spectre of a European Army.

"If there is anyone today who is carrying the conflict, it is Emmanuel Macron", Le Pen told France's Radio Classique, as quoted by Le Figaro daily. As he arrived, Mr. Trump tweeted that Macron "has just suggested that Europe build its own military in order to protect itself from the U.S., China and Russian Federation".

"While in Paris, President Buhari will also join other world leaders to commemorate the centenary anniversary of the Armistice signed on November 11, 1918 between the Allied Forces and Germany in the forest of Compiegne in France to end the First World War".

The trip comes as the White House looks to grapple with a new political reality of Democrats taking the House in Tuesday's midterm elections and the fallout from the president's sudden firing of Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Trump's talks with Macron at Elysee Palace are likely to cover European concerns about Trump's plans to withdraw the United States from the 1980s Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Agreement and U.S. renewal of sanctions against Iran.

Trump launched a broadside at Macron via his preferred medium of conducting foreign policy - Twitter.

Debating whether the United Kingdom should continue to defend its Western European allies, as it did throughout the 20 century, or take a more detached position, RT Howard in the Daily Telegraph argues "there is one compelling reason why our strategic ties with Western Europe now deserve to be closer than ever before".
