Trump EU army blast
DONALD Trump and Emmanuel Macron clashed in Paris after the French president said the EU needed its own army.
The US president tweeted to say the idea was “very insulting” and that the continent should “pay its fair share to NATO”.
Macron tried to defuse the row yesterday, hailing the “great solidarity” of the two countries.
An official said the pair held a “very constructive” meeting and that Trump said: “I think we are much closer than it seems.”
The US President is in the French capital for events commemorating 100 years since the end of the First World War.
Meanwhile EU chief Donald Tusk blasted Mr Trump, saying: “For the first time we have an American administration that is not enthusiastic about a united and strong Europe.”
