President Trump mocked French President Emmanuel Macron’s “approval rating and France’s unemployment rate, and criticized the tariffs it charges for French wine,” the Daily Beast reports.
“But in the comment most likely to upset the French and all veterans, he ridiculed its losses in the World Wars.”
Said Trump: “Macron suggests building its own army to protect Europe against the U.S., China and Russia. But it was Germany in World Wars One & Two – How did that work out for France? They were starting to learn German in Paris before the U.S. came along.”Save to Favorites
