French President Macron Turns on Trump – President Trump Responds
French President Emanuel Macron challenged President Donald Trump on Thursday after the US president hit the European Union on their unfair trade policies with the United States.
Here is the video in French.
Peut-être que ça est égal au Président américain d'être isolé mais ça nous est aussi égal d'être à 6 si besoin était. pic.twitter.com/ppUYyXnrH8

It took only a few hours for President Donald Trump to respond.
Please tell Prime Minister Trudeau and President Macron that they are charging the U.S. massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers. The EU trade surplus with the U.S. is $151 Billion, and Canada keeps our farmers and others out. Look forward to seeing them tomorrow.
