Trump in Paris blasts EU, Macron for ‘insulting’ army proposals

Trump sent a tweet calling Macron's proposal "very insulting" as the US president's plane landed Friday evening for celebrations with world leaders commemorating the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.

Macron's comments came amid the launch of the European Intervention Initiative, a coalition of European militaries that supporters say would not conflict with the largely USA -dominated North Atlantic Treaty Organisation alliance.

"It should be a very attractive period of time, the 100th anniversary of the ending of World War I".

As president, Trump has repeatedly chastised North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members for failing to spend more on defence, and has suggested that the USA was growing disinterested in "paying for Europe's protection" any longer.

U.S. President Donald Trump attends a press conference at the White House in Washington D.C., the United States, on November 7, 2018. That now seems more likely for later this month, when they attend the Group of 20 summit of worldwide leaders in Argentina.

Mr Macron said on Tuesday that Europe "had to protect itself".

The last time the Macrons hosted the Trumps in Paris in July 2017, during Bastille Day celebrations, they whisked them up the Eiffel Tower for a private dinner on the second floor.

"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.

On Saturday afternoon, Mr Macron will meet Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel in the town of Compiegne in northern France, where the Allies and Germany signed the Armistice.

"I don't think we have anything scheduled in Paris and I'm coming back very quickly", the president said.

Senator Marco Rubio also tweeted out a thread pointing out all of the past controversies over Broward supervisor Brenda Snipes. Scott announced the suit and his call for an investigation at a press conference at the governor's mansion Thursday night.


Trump had been itching for a fight in the morning too, taking questions and hurling insults during a pop-up presser on the White House lawn as he headed out of town.

"We won't protect Europeans if we don't decide to have a real European army", he added.

Donald Trump is expected to visit two American cemeteries over the weekend, ahead of a sombre commemoration at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, a memorial to France's fallen under the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. "There may be a lunch for the leaders". Not on Mr. Trump's schedule, despite earlier discussions about the possibility, was an extended meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The White House and the Kremlin had previously considered a formal meeting in Paris. "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.
