Trump arrives in France, labels Macron’s idea for a European army ‘very insulting’

U.S. President Donald Trump said it was “very insulting” for French President Emmanuel Macron to suggest Europe should create its own army to protect itself from potential enemies, including the United States.

“Very insulting, but perhaps Europe should first pay its fair share of NATO, which the U.S. subsidizes greatly,” Trump said on Twitter as he touched down in France to meet with Macron. Macron said Europe needed a real army to reduce reliance on the United States for defense.

“We have to protect ourselves with respect to China, Russia and even the United States of America,” Macron said on French radio.

The U.S. President is scheduled to meet Macron for bilateral talks at the Elysee presidential palace today before visiting the American Aisne-Marne Cemetery later in the day.
