Trump attacks Macron again for proposing a new European army

Trump attacks Macron again for proposing a new European army

But the talks appeared to have not gone down well, as Trump fired off a barrage scolding tweets about France President Emmanuel Macron and the French government.

In fives posts sent on the same day France marked the anniversary of the 2015 terrorist attacks that killed 130 people in Paris, Mr Trump blasted the key United States ally over its near-defeat to Germany in two world wars, its wine industry and Emmanuel Macron's approval ratings. He was just trying to get onto another subject. Furthermore, in response to Macron's "nationalist" snub, Trump pointed out that "there is no more nationalist country" than France...

The French president made a similar statement in a radio interview last week, when he said, "We have to protect ourselves, with respect to China, Russia and even the United States of America", reports CBS News.

Trump, whose family business empire includes a Virginia vineyard that sells a variety of wines, also complained about French tariffs on US wine exports.

Mr Trump tweeted that French tariffs on American wine is "not fair, must change!"

"Emmanuel Macron suggests building its own army to protect Europe against the U.S., China and Russian Federation". Although there have been some tension between the two countries over the years, (specifically when France refused to take part in the 2003 invasion of Iraq), France and the USA have been strong allies since America's beginning.

"Beautiful ceremony today in Paris commemorating the end of World War One", Trump tweeted Sunday about the ceremony he missed.

Bills release quarterback Nathan Peterman
The Jets are 3-7 this season, and Sunday's 41-10 loss to the Buffalo Bills renewed speculation over Bowles' job security. The move came after the Bills chose to start Matt Barkley over Peterman in Sunday's 41-10 win over the New York Jets .

"Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism", Macron said, speaking in French during a weekend address.

While the president did not make it to the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery and Memorial on Saturday, he did deliver remarks honoring America's World War I fallen the following day at the Suresnes American Cemetery and Memorial.

The president's attacks on Macron come after the French president offered a veiled rebuke of President Trump during a speech over the weekend, declaring that nationalism is the opposite of patriotism. Macron has said he wants Europe to bear a greater share of the defence costs within North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, a point he has made repeatedly since taking office. He then tweeted: "MAKE FRANCE GREAT AGAIN" in capital letters.

Mr Trump and Mr Macron met Saturday at the Elysee Palace and discussed defence, trade and other issues. "We would support a trade agreement that would make the tariffs more equal, however we don't want to see this lead to another trade war like we are seeing with China". "Secret Service said NO, too far from airport & big Paris shutdown" for centennial events attended by world leaders.

A GOP senator is responding to French President Emmanuel Macron's alleged criticism of President Trump.

"Speech next day at American Cemetary in pouring rain!" But in an interview aired on Sunday, Macron said Europe should not raise their defense budgets in order to purchase US -made weapons. Trump has embraced the "nationalist" label despite its negative connotations.
