So far during his presidency, President Trump has gotten along pretty well with French President Emmanuel Macron. In fact, some people even referred to the relationship as a bromance. Those days might be coming to an end. For some strange reason, Macron thought it would be a good idea to use his speech on the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day to take a shot at Trump.
It wasn’t even a good shot either.
From The Daily Caller:
French President Emmanuel Macron not so subtly jabbed at President Donald Trump on Sunday when he called nationalism a “betrayal of patriotism” in a speech commemorating the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day.
“Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism,” Mr. Macron said.
“Nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism by saying, ‘our interest first, who cares about the others?’” Macron continued, according to The New York Times.
His remarks fall on the 100th anniversary of World War I’s armistice between the Allied nations and Germany in 1918. Roughly 8.5 million soldiers and 7 million civilians were killed, TheNYT reported.
First of all, what are you doing bringing Trump into it?
Second of all, that point makes no sense. What is he even talking about?
Nationalism is patriotism. Nationalism is simply the idea that you put your country first and worry about other countries second. It’s preposterous for a globalist like Macron to sit there and lecture Trump about what real patriotism is on a day that’s supposed to be about the end of World War I.
