Trump Touches Down in Paris, Hits Back at His Host

Trump Touches Down in Paris, Hits Back at His Host

Farage charged, "You appear to be hell-bent on pushing for your European army, hell-bent for a foreign policy without veto, and hell-bent to be on a direct collision course with President Trump and with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation".

President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron embrace at the conclusion of a news conference in the East Room of the White House in Washington, April 24, 2018.

Trump, who has pursued "America First" policies since taking over the presidency in January 2017, declared himself a "nationalist" during the run-up to the congressional elections, a term likely to raise concerns in Europe.

Macron has been an outspoken critic of Trump's "America First" policies and his decisions to pull out of worldwide agreements such as the Paris climate accord, the Iran nuclear deal and most recently a nuclear arms treaty.

"President Macron of France has just suggested that Europe build its own military in order to protect itself from the U.S., China and Russian Federation".

Both Mr Trump and Mr Putin will be among the leaders attending that ceremony.

"I think it will be something very, very special", he said.

The row over European Union defence risks overshadowing commemorations to be attended by 70 world leaders, including Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkey's Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

"We can't defend Europe if we don't have a real European army", he said.

The primary goal of the president's visit, according to the administration official, will be attending ceremonies around the centennial commemoration of the end of World War I. "Very insulting", Trump said in a tweet. Political and military analysts question whether European countries have the will, money or materiel to replace the raw power of the United States.

As president, Trump has repeatedly chastised North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members for failing to spend more on defence, and has suggested that the US was growing disinterested in "paying for Europe's protection" any longer.

The president, joined by his wife Melania and high-ranking United States officials, arrived late on Friday aboard Air Force One for a visit that he called "very special" and one that he "looked forward to".

During his visit to Paris, the presidential aide said, Buhari would attend a luncheon hosted by President Emmanuel Macron of France in honour of visiting heads of delegations. The pair are expected to meet during the G-20 meeting later this month in Argentina, and the White House has invited Putin to visit Washington.

At the same time, Macron has increasingly been positioning himself as a bulwark against the rising tide of Trump-style populism across Europe, speaking out loudly against the dangers of nationalism and isolationist retreat. That now seems more likely for later this month, when they attend the G20 summit of global leaders in Argentina.
