French President made a suggestion on French National radio and US President doesn’t seem so happy about it. Donald Trump criticised French President Emmanuel Macron for suggesting that Europe should build its own army. Trump tweeted this last Friday.
His tweet says, “President Emmanuel Macron of France has suggested that Europe build its own military in order to protect itself from the US, China, and Russia. Very insulting, but perhaps Europe should first pay its fair share of NATO, which the U.S. subsidizes greatly!
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!
Ironically, all this is happening when the world is going to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War. The armistic day is also going to be commemorated on the same day. Trump tweeted just a few moments after he arrived to attend the day. India President Venkaiah Naidu is going to represent India while attending the commemoration.
According to a report by News agency AFP, President Emmanuel Macron called for building a European army to save Europe from powerful countries like China, Russia and even the United States of America. Emmanuel asked how can Europe protect itself unless it builds its own real European army.
French was giving an interview to Radio station one. While giving the interview he said, “ Who is the main victim? Europe and Its security! I want to build a real security dialogue with Russia, which is a country I respect, a European country but we must have a Europe that can defend itself on its own without relying only on the United States.”
