Trump lashes out at Macron over defence proposal

Trump 'bashes' UK’s May after she calls to congratulate him on midterm results

The following day, Macron's spokesman had this to say... The comments were widely viewed as a rebuke of Trump, who sat stone-faced in the company of other world leaders as Macron spoke. The millions upon millions of graves in Europe's war cemeteries are a constant reminder of the destruction of large parts of the world, especially Europe, brought about by two world wars. On Sunday, he listened as he was lectured on the dangers of nationalist isolation, and then he headed home just as the inaugural Paris Peace Summit was getting underway.

Indeed, the U.S. President, who has pilloried European countries for failing to bear their fair share of the defence burden as members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, seemed to take Mr. Macron's plan for a "real" European army as a threat and insult rather than a sign that the French President was acting on Mr. Trump's urgings. Doing this in front of more than 60 world leaders, including US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, with a speech that was broadcast live around the world, was his war cry to stop the bandwagon of nationalism before it is too late.

Assistants to the Prime Minister was shocked by the behaviour of trump, the newspaper said. Macron asked in Wednesday interview (local time).

In June, Trump fought with a variety of theoretically friendly world leaders at the G7 summit in Canada.

Trump was missing from one of the weekend's most powerful images: A line of world leaders, walking shoulder to-shoulder in a somber, rain-soaked procession as the bells marking the exact moment that fighting ended - 11 a.m. on November 11, 1918 - finished tolling.

Macron repeated his earlier remark - which had so angered Trump - on the need for Europe to take charge of its own security instead of relying exclusively on the US.

He also emphasized the difference between patriotism and nationalism and pointed out that the first one is good and the latter is not.

In the coming days Trump should be ready to face fractious fronts at home and overseas, and nothing more alarming than a newly aroused House.

As noted, the Mei is not the first time faced with the hard character of the American President, however, according to European diplomats, her assistants were amazed by the style trump.

Goading President Trump wasn't just a French hobby, either.

On Sunday, Armistice Day, he did attend the ceremony at the nearby Arc de Triomphe at the foot of the Champs-Elysees, but he didn't join others in the procession there and later visited another US cemetery at Suresnes, outside Paris.

"We are going to carry out very concrete operations with the Americans", he said, citing the "perfect co-ordination and excellent execution" of a joint operation with the USA and United Kingdom in Syria last April.

Trump delivered the speech as other leaders were gathered for the Paris Peace Forum, which aims to revive collective governance and worldwide cooperation to tackle global challenges. Its role as host of the main global commemoration highlighted the point that the world mustn't stumble into war again, as it did so quickly and catastrophically with World War II.
