President Trump took to Twitter as his plane landed in the French capital, saying, "President Macron of France has just suggested that Europe build its own military in order to protect itself from the US, China and Russian Federation".
Nevertheless, a senior French source said: "It's really important to have the British on board, not just because they have the most capable, rapidly deployable armed forces along with our own, but also because we share the same strategic culture and history of projecting force outside Europe". "Very insulting, but perhaps Europe should first pay its fair share of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, which the USA subsidizes greatly!", Trump tweeted as he arrived in France to meet with Macron.
"We have to protect ourselves with respect to China, Russia and even the US", Macron said at the time.
US President Donald Trump is shifting his post-election focus with a weekend trip to Paris, joining an worldwide commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the armistice that ended World War I.
Trump's brief visit to Europe comes amid uncertainty about the United States relationship with the continent.
According to Le Pen, a vocal critic of European institutions, Macron was the "defender of this new empire that is the European Union, and that crushes citizens living under its rule". "I think the enduring lesson (of World War I) for the United States is that when you become a global power. you have global interests to protect", Bolton said.
But the relationship-building failed to persuade Trump to remain in the global climate change agreement or Iran deals and did nothing to protect France from U.S. tariffs.
"We can't defend Europe if we don't have a real European army", he said. While Republicans slightly expanded their majority in the US Senate, they lost control of the US House of Representatives to Democrats who may use their newfound power to launch investigations into Trump and stymie his agenda.
The statement reads in part, "The Nigerian President will join the United Nations Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres and other world leaders in discussing contributions towards global peace while underscoring the imperative of collective action".
Macron had made the remark Tuesday but Trump waited until he was in town to trash talk the French president.
However, on other occasions, Trump has said that the USA remains committed to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation despite concerns over its funding. The pair are expected to meet during the G-20 meeting later this month in Argentina, and the White House has invited Putin to visit Washington.
Landing in Paris, he picked a fight with France's President Macron.
