The president of France, Emmanuel Macron, lately sat down with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria for an interview that aired this Saturday. During the interview, the politician mentioned a myriad of subjects, together with his ideas on a selected tweet made by American President Donald Trump.
The tweet in query was made as Trump arrived in Paris forward of a global occasion commemorating the 100th anniversary of the top of World War I this Friday. “President Macron of France has simply advised that Europe construct its personal army in an effort to defend itself from the US, China and Russia," Trump wrote. "Very insulting, however maybe Europe ought to first pay its fair proportion of NATO, which the US subsidizes vastly!” Trump's phrases had been a response to a current look by Macron on French radio wherein he stated, “We have to guard ourselves with respect to China, Russia and even the United States of America,” Macron stated on French radio.
Macron is seemingly not as large as a fan of debating political issues on Twitter as Donald Trump. He instructed CNN journalist Fareed Zakaria, “I all the time favor having direct dialogue or answering questions than making my diplomacy by tweets." He went on to disclose that regardless of Trump's tweets, the 2 politicians really shared a cordial alternate that day revealing, “We had an excellent dialogue this morning and he confirmed in entrance of the press that he was OK."
