Trump attacks Macron again for proposing a new European army

Trump fires back at European leaders after damp reception in France

U.S. President Donald Trump went on a prolific Twitter tear against his French counterpart Tuesday, slamming Emmanuel Macron for what he called low approval ratings and high unemployment. Worldwide leaders attended a ceremony in Paris on Sunday at mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.

'He was just trying to get onto another subject. "T$3 here is no country more Nationalist than France, very proud people-and rightfully so!"

The president's trip to France was further clouded by controversy over the cancellation of a visit to a World War I USA military cemetery - after his helicopter was grounded by the rain - a decision that was widely criticized.

Trump's attacks came after returning from a visit to France, marking the anniversary of the end of World War I. The president attacked Macron for his plans for a European army, urging the French to "pay for NATO" and praises nationalist sentiments in France - urging the French to "Make France Great Again!" "Not fair, must change!", the President Tweeted.

President Donald Trump dashed any hope he might rekindle his bromance with France's President Emmanuel Macron, tweeting nastily about Macron's suggestion that Europe should take Trump's advice and stop relying on US for its defense.

Trump ridiculed that suggestion by pointing a finger at Germany and its past adversarial role against France during World War I and World War II.

The US president issued a heavily loaded tweet on Tuesday in which he said the French "were starting to learn German in Paris before the USA came along".

Gerard Araud, France's ambassador to the USA, challenged Trump's assertions.

Chubb's run broke the previous team mark held by Bobby Mitchell, who had a 90-yard TD run against Washington on November 15, 1959. "I wouldn't say it's flat", Jones said of his team not scoring in the first quarter against the Browns.

Macron later clarified his comments to say they were directed at cybercrime and building domestic defense industries that didn't rely on U.S. arms.

President Trump's Twitter outburst received swift, widespread backlash, prompting Harvard professor Fredrik Logevall to marvel how a president could so easily insult one of the United States' longest and most loyal allies. Hundreds of activists came out in the rain this weekend to protest Trump's arrival in France, the Washington Post reports, with the giant balloon of Trump caricatured as a baby making another appearance.

First lady Melania Trump, U.S. President Donald Trump, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Emmanuel Macron and Brigitte Macron, Russian President Vladimir Putin attend a commemoration ceremony for Armistice Day.

Trump claimed that there was "almost zero visibility" which grounded the helicopter and that he himself suggested driving, but was told it was impossible by secret services.

Trump tweeted about a suggestion by French President Emmanuel Macron that Europe is building up its militaries because the continent can no longer depend on the U.S. for defense.

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation funding has always been a gripe of Trump's, who said on the 2016 presidential campaign trail that he would consider disbanding the 70-year-old alliance.

He criticized the media for not reporting his speech at an American cemetery on Sunday in the pouring rain. Little reported-Fake News!'
