The head of the White House, Donald Trump, called the idea of the French leader Emmanuel Macron to create an EU army to defend against the United States, the Russian Federation and the PRC as “very offensive”.
“It’s very insulting, but maybe Europe should first pay its fair share in NATO, which the US is heavily subsidizing,” wrote the American leader on Twitter.
Recall, the French president Emmanuel Macron proposed to create a pan-European army, which will be independent of the United States. The EC believes that such a decision is premature. Earlier, Leonid Ivashov, President of the Academy of Geopolitical Problems, explained Macron’s desire to create an EU army.
