Trump Tells French President MAKE FRANCE GREAT AGAIN
Donald Trump SLAMMED BACK against French President Emmanuel Macron after Macron called for the European Union to build it’s own army, even naming the United States as a seemingly potential threat.
Earlier this week Trump tweeted, “Emmanuel Macron suggests building its own army to protect Europe against the U.S., China and Russia. But it was Germany in World Wars One & Two – How did that work out for France? They were starting to learn German in Paris before the U.S. came along. Pay for NATO or not!”

“On Trade, France makes excellent wine, but so does the U.S. The problem is that France makes it very hard for the U.S. to sell its wines into France, and charges big Tariffs, whereas the U.S. makes it easy for French wines, and charges very small Tariffs. Not fair, must change!” he continued.
He then took his ire to Macron’s approval rating, saying, “The problem is that Emmanuel suffers from a very low Approval Rating in France, 26%, and an unemployment rate of almost 10%. He was just trying to get onto another subject. By the way, there is no country more Nationalist than France, very proud people-and rightfully so!……..”
Trump ended his Twitter storm with “MAKE FRANCE GREAT AGAIN!”
Last week, Macron strengthened his calls for a European army – something he’s been calling for since he was elected last year – to defend the E.U. from the U.S., China and Russia.
“We will not protect the Europeans unless we decide to have a true European army,” Macron said during an interview on French radio, The Wall Street Journal reported last Tuesday.
“We have to protect ourselves with respect to China, Russia and even the United States of America,” he said.
On Friday, Trump addressed Macron’s comments for the first time, tweeting, “President Macron of France has just suggested that Europe build its own military in order to protect itself from the U.S., China and Russia. Very insulting, but perhaps Europe should first pay its fair share of NATO, which the U.S. subsidizes greatly!”
Despite last week’s remarks, the two leaders met amicably on Saturday for meetings and lunch ahead of the 100th anniversary of the World War I armistice in Paris.
