DEAL MAKER: Trump Gives World Leaders Two Options That Could Make Or Break Ties With U.S.

President Trump returned from his trip overseas in France, where he and First Lady Melania attended ceremonies that included an Armistice Day event with other world leaders at the Arc de Triomphe in Paris.

The celebration marked the centennial anniversary of the end of World War I.

Upon returning, President Trump wrote Monday on Twitter that he told French President Emmanuel Macron and other world leaders the United States cannot resume bearing the financial burden associated with military treaties and trade agreements

He said, “Just returned from France where much was accomplished in my meetings with World Leaders. Never easy bringing up the fact that the U.S. must be treated fairly, which it hasn’t, on both Military and Trade. We pay for LARGE portions of other countries military protection, hundreds of billions of dollars, for the great privilege of losing hundreds of billions of dollars with these same countries on trade.”

“I told them that this situation cannot continue – It is, and always has been, ridiculously unfair to the United States.” Trump added.

He continued, “Massive amounts of money spent on protecting other countries, and we get nothing but Trade Deficits and Losses. It is time that these very rich countries either pay the United States for its great military protection, or protect themselves…and Trade must be made FREE and FAIR!” (Article Continues Below)

President Trump also blasted Macron on Friday when the European leader proposed the idea of a “true European army.”

“President Macron of France has just suggested that Europe build its own military in order to protect itself from the U.S., China and Russia. Very insulting, but perhaps Europe should first pay its fair share of NATO, which the U.S. subsidizes greatly!” Trump wrote on Twitter Friday. (Article Continues Below)
