Donald Trump Taunts Macron: 'No Country More Nationalist than France'

French President Emmanuel Macron led tributes to the millions of soldiers killed in World War One on Sunday (11 November), using an emotional ceremony in Paris attended by scores of world leaders to warn against nationalism a century on from the conflict.

Though Trump and Macron consider themselves friends, their recent exchange of criticisms began when Macron told Europe 1 radio that the European Union needs a "real army", so it could depend less on the United States.

Trump and Macron's relationship began as a trans-Atlantic "bromance" but as sourced as Macron seeks to make up ground within his own group of European leaders.

The French leader went on to heavily criticise US President Donald Trump's policies. He repeated the false claim about Macron's intentions for a European army, and followed it up with the well-worn jingoistic claim that France would be speaking German if it had not been for USA intervention in two world wars. Pay for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation or not!'

After participating in the weekend's centennial World War I commemorations in France, where bitter divisions among the transatlantic partners were on full display, Trump fired off a tweet accusing Paris of taking advantage of the United States in the wine trade.

National Security Adviser John Bolton, on the same day, tweeted out a picture of Trump appearing to stare down world leaders, including Macron and Merkel. It added that it was good that Trump remembers European history. We will not be able to say to future generations that we didn't know. "It was an erroneous press report", Araud tweeted.

He said the country charged "big tariffs" compared with the "very small tariffs" the United States placed on French wine. Trump's standing with the French is lower than Macron's.

He also complained about tariffs on USA wines in France, appeared to take a dig at President Emmanuel Macron's approval ratings, and attempted to defend his self-proclaimed nationalism by saying, "There is no country more Nationalist than France", all in a matter of hours.

Mr Trump tweeted that French tariffs on American wine is "not fair, must change!"

"The link exists between the President of the Republic and Donald Trump".

Trump, who built a career in business before he entered politics, opened a winery in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2011.

'He was just trying to get onto another subject.

In response, Trump took to Twitter Tuesday, targeting Macron for his approval rating and claiming "there is no country more Nationalist than France".

Mr Macron is hovering at around 30 percent in popularity polls, while the unemployment rate is just above 9 percent.

During the Paris Peace Forum, which Trump spent largely alone, Macron condemned the nationalism Trump has been stoking.

However, it's important to note that POTUS is merely counterpunching here, following the French president's passive-aggressive attack this weekend.

The Secret Service did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the president's tweet.
