FRENCH President Emmanuel Macron today called for “a real European army” to protect itself from growing military threats and an increasingly isolationist America.
The avowed Europhile said China and Russia were becoming increasingly powerful, while the superpower USA under the erratic Donald Trump could not be relied upon for defence.
Macron told Paris radio station Europe 1: “We have to protect ourselves with respect to China, Russia and even the United States of America. “When I see President Trump announcing that he’s quitting a major disarmament treaty which was formed after the 1980s euro-missile crisis that hit Europe, who is the main victim? Europe and its security. “We will not protect the Europeans unless we decide to have a true European army.”
Macron’s strong words came as he prepared to welcome Trump and other world leaders, including UK Prime Minister Theresa May, and Russia’s Vladimir Putin to France to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the World War I Armistice.
