Trump spars with Macron as Air Force One lands in France

French President Emmanuel Macron chairs a cabinet meeting in Charleville-Mezieres northeastern France Wednesday Nov.7 2018

"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", Trump tweeted.

At that meeting, Trump would not say whether he believed Putin or U.S. intelligence agencies about their conclusions about Russia's interference with the 2016 presidential election.

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.

Coming just days after Macron called for a "real European army" to reduce dependence on the United States, and with the vocal support of senior figures in Brussels, the coalition agreement will once again raising the spectre of a European Army.

"We have to protect ourselves with respect to China, Russia and even the US", Macron said at the time. Mr. Trump's visit comes on the heels of midterm elections in which Americans delivered a split referendum on his presidency, keeping the Senate in his party's control but ceding the House to opposition Democrats.

Trump's talks with Macron at Elysee Palace are likely to cover European concerns about Trump's plans to withdraw the United States from the 1980s Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Agreement and USA renewal of sanctions against Iran.

"I don't think that this defense identity will start with an European Union army", Schinas said on Tuesday.

Mr Macron has been a longstanding critic of Trump.

"In an environment where threats and upheavals of a geopolitical or climatic nature are multiplying, the initiative must send the message that Europe is ready, that Europe is capable", a French defence ministry official said, according to Reuters. "And we look forward to that", Trump told reporters on Friday before leaving the White House.

The statement reads in part, "The Nigerian President will join the United Nations Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres and other world leaders in discussing contributions towards global peace while underscoring the imperative of collective action". But the relationship-building failed to persuade Mr. Trump to remain in the global climate change or Iran deals and did nothing to protect France from USA tariffs.

Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu has embarked on a three-day visit to France on Friday. The pair are expected to meet during the G-20 meeting later this month in Argentina, and the White House has invited Putin to visit Washington.

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