SUMMIT SHOWDOWN: Trump Hits France’s Macron on NATO, Syria at UK Summit

posted by Hannity Staff - 12.03.19

President Trump called-out French President Emmanuel Macron during a high-stakes NATO summit Tuesday; saying his recent comments on Syria and US leadership very “disrespectful.”

“Nobody needs NATO more than France,” Trump said, alluding to France’s invasion by Germany during World War I and World War II. “It’s a very dangerous statement for them to make,” Trump added. “Frankly, the one that benefits the least is the United States. We are helping Europe unite and go against a common foe – may not be a foe – I can’t tell you.”

“It is a very tough statement to make when you have such difficulty in France when you look at what is going on,” Trump continued. “They have had a very rough year. You just can’t go around making statements like that about NATO. It is very disrespectful.”

Trump’s comments were a direct response to Macron’s fierce criticism of the United States’ policy towards Syria.

“What we are currently experiencing is the brain death of NATO,” said the French President. “So as soon as you have a member who feels they have a right to head off on their own, granted by the United States of America, they do it.”
