Twitter Explodes After Donald Trump Hits Emmanuel Macron With Learning German Taunt

That request, according to Putin himself, was that he not meet with the president one-on-one during the World War I commemorative event in Paris.

"It´s not for us to comment on content meant for his citizens", said the advisor, declining to be named. adding that relations between Macron and Trump were "not always easy but are enduring". Pay for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation or not!

He referenced both world wars when criticizing Macron's plan to start a European army in the wake of a changing political world.

On Saturday, Trump and Macron met at the Elysée Palace to discuss issues such as defense and trade.

"Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism", Macron said.

The president lashed out at Macron, slamming him for having a "very low Approval Rating", and mocking France's defeat at the hands of Germany during World War II.

Trump concluded by suggesting he could help "MAKE FRANCE GREAT AGAIN".

On Tuesday, Trump rejected Macron's warnings against the threat of nationalism, delivered during an emotional ceremony in Paris on Sunday attended by scores of world leaders.

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

After slamming Macron on defence, Trump's went on to attack his standing as president: "The problem is that Emmanuel suffers from a very low Approval Rating in France, 26 per cent, and an unemployment rate of nearly 10pc".

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

Emmanuel Macron's spokesman accused Donald Trump of lacking "common decency" Wednesday after the US President blasted his French counterpart in a series of tweets following his visit to Paris.

"At every moment of our history, we were allies, so between allies, respect is due", Macron said. "Go back to your room and give the phone to an adult".

"The question today isn't so much 'what do we respond to Donald Trump?' but whether we as Europeans have the guts to show the world what we're capable of".

The cancellation drew criticism from those who said Mr Trump should have found a way to travel to the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery and Memorial, regardless of the weather. "Secret Service said NO, too far from airport and big Paris shutdown". "Little reported-Fake News!" The French president also suggested, in an apparent attack on Trump, that nationalism is a "betrayal of patriotism".
