'Allies owe each other respect,' Macron says of Trump tweets

Trump fires back at European leaders after damp reception in France President Trump lashed out at European leaders after French President Emmanuel Macron denounced his "America First" brand of nationalism and called for the creation of a European army, independent from the US.

President Donald Trump staged a digital tantrum again, after his participation last week in the commemorative events of the First World War in Paris made him look as a second-class president.

"I think that's what the French expect from me, not to respond to tweets but to remain committed to pursuing this important history", he added.

Macron played down Trump's inflammatory remarks, suggesting the president was merely performing for his domestic audience.

According to a report from The Washington Post, May called Trump on Friday to congratulate him on the GOP picking up a few Senate seats in the midterm elections.

French President Emmanuel Macron said on Wednesday that he and U.S. President Donald Trump agreed to put pressure on oil producers to bring down prices.

He called for Europe to spend more money to become more independent from the US military umbrella, saying that "being allies doesn't mean being vassals".

On Tuesday, Mr Trump attacked Mr Macron over nationalism, plans for a European army and the French leader's ratings.

The French and the American leaders met on Saturday in Paris before ceremonies commemorating the centenary of the armistice of World War One. Mr. Macron, who is considered Mr. Trump's favourite European leader, was clear on his positions on the Iran nuclear deal, climate change, free trade and worldwide cooperation.

But Macron said the flap would not shake the strong cooperation between the two countries, in particular their joint military actions, in particular against jihadist terrorism. They were starting to learn German in Paris before the United States came along.

"The United States is our historic ally and will continue to be".

Trump appeared to be upset over President Macron's sharp rebuke of rising nationalist sentiment, which Trump may have considered a personal attack on himself and his administration.

With Trump's principal critic in the European Union, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, preparing to leave the political stage, Macron is emerging as Trump's most prominent and outspoken rival. "Very insulting, but perhaps Europe should first pay its fair share of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, which the USA subsidizes greatly!" he tweeted after Macron called for a "true European army" to protect the continent's countries, even from the U.S.

Discussing the growing dangers from cyber-hacking, meddling in electoral processes and the U.S. decision to withdraw from a missile treaty, Mr Macron told Europe 1 radio last week Europe needed to "protect itself against China, Russia and even the United States".
