Trump ar­rives in France

Las Vegas Review-Journal - - WORLD -

PARIS — Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump wasted no time tak­ing a poke at his

French host Fri­day as he ar­rived in Paris for events mark­ing the 100th an­niver­sary of the ar­mistice that ended World War I, tweet­ing as he landed that Pres­i­dent Em­manuel Macron had made an “in­sult­ing” pro­posal to build up Eu­rope’s mil­i­tary to counter the U.S., China and Rus­sia.

Trump planned to meet with Macron on Sat­ur­day for talks on top­ics ex­pected to in­clude Euro­pean se­cu­rity, Syria and Iran.

Trump’s na­tional se­cu­rity ad­viser, John Bolton, said Fri­day in Paris that the U.S. was con­cerned about sta­bil­ity in Eu­rope and that Trump was not shirk­ing from global en­gage­ment.

“I think the en­dur­ing les­son (of World War I) for the United States is that when you be­come a global power ... you have global in­ter­ests to pro­tect,” Bolton said.

“Great world lead­ers,” he said, are “driven by na­tional in­ter­ests.”
