The US President Donald trump.
WASHINGTON, 10 Nov — Donald trump has described as “very offensive” the suggestion of Emmanuel Macron to create a common European army for protection from the US, Russia and China.
“The President of France macron proposed that Europe created their own military to protect themselves from the US, China and Russia. Very offensive, but perhaps Europe should first pay their fair share in NATO, which the US subsidizes much!” — trump wrote on Twitter.
Previously, the macron has suggested to create independent from the United States a “European army” including cybersecurity. The French President stressed that Europe is faced with numerous attempts to interfere in its internal democratic processes and cyberspace.
