Paris: Trump confused about Macron's army remarks

French President Emmanuel Macron's office responded on Saturday to the criticism of the United States President Donald Trump about the European army remarks. Paris stressed that the US leader is "confused" about Macron's statement and that the French leader never implied that the bloc needs to build the military to protect itself from the US.

An official from President Macron's office noted that Trump misunderstood two different remarks and put them into one, according to the AP.

Trump criticized Macron on Friday for saying earlier this week that the EU should have its own real military and become more self-reliant in defense. The US leader found Macron's remarks "very insulting" suggesting that Europe needs to pay its "fair share" in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) first.
