  • Trump slams Macron for ‘insulting’ plan to build up Europe’s military

"Very insulting, but perhaps Europe should first pay its fair share of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, which the USA subsidizes greatly", Trump added, returning to his repeated demand that European nations do more to help fund the Western alliance.

However, Trump canceled his visit because of bad weather.

When Trump was asked about his tweeted declaration about being insulted, he said, "We're getting along from the standpoint of fairness".

"The French President macron has admitted that Europe will create its own army to defend itself from the United States, China and Russian Federation".

On Saturday, Macron and Trump downplayed their divisions after a tumultuous start to the weekend, which saw Trump fire off a tweet slamming Macron's proposals for a European army just as his plane was touching down in Paris.

The last to arrive was Russia's Putin, who shook hands with Macron, Merkel and then Trump, briefly giving the U.S. leader a thumbs up.

Trump, who champions a nationalist "America first" policy, will not attend the forum but Putin is expected to do so. "Today in France and Belgium we reflect on our shared history, but also look ahead to our shared future, built on peace, prosperity and friendship", May said.

Macron later said his call for greater European autonomy on defence was not intended as a snub towards the USA and backed Trump's calls for EU members to boost their defence spending.

"When President Trump has to protect or to defend one of the states of the United States, he doesn't ask France or Germany, or another government of Europe to finance it", he added.

Macron's office said that his remarks on the radio "could create confusion" but that Macron "never said we need a European army against the United States", according to France24.

The Elysee said the misunderstanding, which it said had been caused by "exaggerated" USA press reports, was cleared up during more than an hour of talks it described as "substantial" and "very constructive". Inside a gilded meeting room, Macron referred to Trump as "my good friend" and, at one point, tapped him on the thigh.

Trump also had been scheduled to visit the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery at Belleau Wood on Saturday, but canceled because of rainy weather that grounded the presidential helicopter. "We're very much similar in our views".

Trump is now in France alongside a number of world leaders including Theresa May for the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War, a trip started off by calling French president's discussions of a European army "insulting". Kelly and Dunford, who were joined by their wives, placed a wreath in front of the cemetery's chapel and walked through the rows of gravestones under a low cloud cover and a light rain.

As the news went viral that Trump made a decision to stay inside rather than fearless a few raindrops, critics on Twitter began circulating a photo of former President Barack Obama holding his own umbrella and giving a speech during a downpour on Memorial Day 2010.

A German delegation signed the Armistice before sunrise on November 11, 1918, in a private train belonging to the commander of French forces, Ferdinand Foch, parked on rail track running through the Compiegne Forest.

Ben Rhodes, the deputy national security adviser under Obama, noted he helped plan Obama's foreign travel throughout his two terms and said it was common to have a backup plan to deal with inclement weather.

"There is always a rain option", he wrote.

At 4:25 p.m., they depart France for Washington.
