Macron takes a valiant stand against rising nationalism

Macron takes a valiant stand against rising nationalism

"Emmanuel Macron suggests building its own army to protect Europe against the US, China and Russia", Trump tweeted on Monday.

With Britain poised to leave the European Union, the opportunist president believed there was a once-in-a-generation opportunity to position France as America's key European partner in a transatlantic alliance.

But asked whether there was a deeper misunderstanding between the two countries after Macron's comments about a European army infuriated Trump, Macron said being a U.S. ally did not mean being subservient.

Asked whether Trump's four tweets were unpleasant and inelegant, the French leader answered: "you summed up everything". Olivier Faure, head of the French Socialist Party, said that while he opposed Mr Macron's policies, he sympathised with the president for having to endure Mr Trump whose "verbal diarrhoea is becoming unbearable".

The truth is that Mr. Macron has bigger worries than Mr. Trump right now.

China says high-level trade talks with US have resumed
Responding to Pence's remarks, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said China had always been a "model student" when it came to respecting worldwide rules and norms.


Because if Trump, a self-described nationalist, is putting America first, that means that there will be cutbacks - or outright elimination - in the financial and military assistance the US has been doling out to France and Europe for more than 50 years.

"They were starting to learn German in Paris before the USA came along", Mr. Trump charged in a Tuesday tweet that evoked the Nazi occupation during the Second World War, which is just about as a low as anyone can go in aiming to hit the French where it hurts most.

"To be honest, I don't do diplomacy or politics through tweets."

Mr Macron insisted in an interview to coincide with the Armistice centenary that they had much in common.

Mr Trump, referring to the push for a European military, tweeted that Mr Macron was "just trying to get onto another subject".

Microsoft Resumes Windows 10 Update After Pause
Have you received the Windows 10 October 2018 update on your PC? Now, when you enable the light theme , everything will be light . The last update of the system became a disaster . "But this is pretty bad". "Completely gone, nothing in Windows .old either".


However, in response, may has faced intense criticism from trump.

The president and first lady Melania Trump had traveled to the commemoration separately - White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders cited security protocols - from the other dignitaries, who had traveled together by bus from the Élysée Palace. A Kremlin official said later that US and Russian officials chose to drop plans for the Paris meeting after French officials objected. Trump responded with a wide smile. Trump has embraced the "nationalist" label despite its negative connotations. And progressive Twitter, never one to leave a President Trump flub unnoticed, barraged the former reality television star with photo after photo of his arch nemesis and predecessor President Barack Obama paying homage to the troops in all sorts of inclement weather.

"We are going to carry out very concrete operations with the Americans", he said, citing the "perfect co-ordination and excellent execution" of a joint operation with the USA and United Kingdom in Syria last April.

France was the epicenter of World War I, the first global conflict.

Mr Trump appeared to be incensed after critical media coverage of his trip - during which he was called out for cancelling a visit to an American military cemetery after his helicopter was grounded by the rain.
