Trump Reportedly Told Macron To Leave EU And Get A Better US Trade Deal
According to claims being made in media reports, French President Emmanuel Macron was suggested to pull out of the European Union by US President Donald Trump to get a better for a bilateral trade deal.
 
It is reported that the offer was made during the meeting of the two leaders during Macron’s visit to the White House at the end of April. It is also claimed that the offer was made to destroy the Europe alliance.
 
The US president asked Macron: “Why don’t you leave the European Union?” claimed the Washington Post. A substantial bilateral trade deal can be offered to France by the US in exchange.
 
Compared to the trade terms than the EU as a whole gets from the US, a better deal was promised by Trump, claimed the article.
 
The report was sourced from two unnamed European officials by the columnist at the Washington Post, Josh Rogin. The report added that the proposition revealed “a basic lack of understanding of Macron’s views and those of the people who elected him”. It was “an instance of the president of the United States offering an incentive to dismantle an organsation of America’s allies, against stated US government policy”.
 
There has been comments on the report from either the US administration or the French government.
 
Ever since Trump became the US President, he has pulled the US from the United Nations human rights council, raised questions about the country’s membership in the Nato, dropped out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the Paris climate agreement. And Canada and Mexico have been targeted by Trump in the last few weeks in order to pressurize them to accept the US terms on the renegotiated North American Free Trade Agreement (Nafta).
 
Instead, the US president has promoted “America first” policies, insisting that foreign countries – allies and adversaries alike – have been taking advantage of the US.
 
While the US has imposed import tariffs on friendly countries and the EU, Trump has threatened the closest allies of the country of losing access to the US market in case they denied reduction of tariffs on US companies’ services and goods.
 
Trump was attempting to inflict “enormous” but pointless damage on European allies, the Washington Post said
 
“Trump has been trashing the EU and Nato since his campaign, but the pace and viciousness of his attacks have increased,” Rogin wrote. “Trump doesn’t believe in the continued sanctity of the European Union and Nato as well as the United States’ commitment to both.”
 
He added that Trump’s “intentional and egregious actions to undermine the EU, Nato and the United States relationship with both can no longer be discounted, rationalised or seen as anything but what they are – a brazen attempt to undo the strategic infrastructure both America and Europe need more than ever”.
