Here’s another one of those Joe Biden endorsements that should be enough reason on its own to vote for Donald Trump.
French President Emmanuel Macron is coming out and saying outright that America needs to have a globalist president to interfere aggressively with world affairs, and Donald Trump is not that man.
He can’t vote in the U.S. presidential election, but French President Emmanuel Macron hopes whoever wins the November vote is more of a global player.
Following traditional diplomatic protocol, Macron wouldn’t say who he favors in the U.S. presidential election on Nov. 3 but promised to work well with whoever wins.
But President Donald Trump’s unapologetic “America-first” foreign policy has frustrated historic allies like France, who are closely following this year’s U.S. presidential race between Trump, the Republican candidate, and his Democratic Party rival, former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden.
Macron has watched with dismay as Trump pulled the U.S. out of multiple international agreements, including the 2015 landmark Paris climate change accord and the Iran nuclear deal. Trump has also demanded that Europeans pay more for their defense, clashed with France over taxes and stoked tensions in global hotspots.
The two leaders’ once-friendly relationship has been increasingly strained.
“What’s important in the international context is that we have a United States that can play its role as a permanent member of the U.N. Security Council, a member that is fully involved in big multilateral questions,” Macron told reporters Friday.
“We need the United States for resolving the most complex conflicts, and we need to have a United States that is a partner in collective security,” he said.
These are really radical statements.
He’s obviously talking about he wars in the Middle East that other US presidents would have gotten involved in. He’s talking about the botched revolution in Belarus, which Obama would have gone full on with like he went full on with the Ukraine.
