Right, the France and the Macron who has been vilifying Trump for months
Macron vilifying Trump? What are you talking about? Macron rolled out the red carpet for him a few months ago and has been going full charm
offensive since day one. Macron was the first head of state to visit the Whitehouse and is pretty much the only one to say nice things about him.
Trump's best friend in Europe
Actually, I had to review that. Macron did criticize Trump on both the Climate Accord and recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital. As far as that
CNN report of Macron convincing Trump Trump to stay in Syria....wanna bet on that happening?
If CNN wants to make that relationship more than it is, a PR move on Trump's part showing the rest of Europe that he could be 'worked with' and a good
fellow, cough cough, that's their play. I have a wee bit of a problem with CNN's objectivity. What is omitted in the article is Macron had no
alternative to increasing border and immigration control. He certainly didn't in the onset of his leadership. Envision if the same riots that occurred
in Paris happened in Washington, D.C.? I don't care who was President, they'd act too...or be booted out of office. Trump's policies are far more
proactive than Macron's. Perhaps Macron has 'seen the light' and is now an ally of Trump, the very Idea is a bit of a shocker to me, but not
impossible, now that I look at it again.
Actually, that relationship wasn't as bad as I supposed or was, at one point.I do recall Macron being very anti-Trump in his election campaign, but
things change. Thank you for that. Certainly nowhere near as bad as with May.
I don't trust him or May. I'm betting it was Trump who convinced May, whether he knows it or not. I have zero doubt Trump would have authorized the
strike with or without Macron's or May's 'support'. Do you?
