Emmanuel Macron: French media are 'totally narcissistic'

Posted September 21, 2017

"We have a disagreement on climate".

A major military parade hasn't taken place in Washington since 1991, when, according to The New York Times, 80 pieces of military hardware, including amphibious assault vehicles and "at least one M1 tank", rumbled through the streets of the nation's capital in celebration of America's Gulf War victory. "By violating its worldwide commitments, the new USA administration only destroys its own credibility and undermines global confidence in negotiating with it or accepting its word or promise". In many ways, he aspires to be a leader like the one in North Korea.

"Renouncing it would be a grave error, not respecting it would be irresponsible, because it is a good accord that is essential to peace at a time where the risk of an infernal conflagration can not be excluded", Macron said. "It was signed in this very room", he said in the United Nations chamber.

Meeting with President Emmanuel Macron of France on Monday, President Trump stated his intention to hold a military parade in Washington, D.C., come next July 4. "That agreement is not up for renegotiation".

French President Emmanuel Macron hosted Trump during the country's Bastille Day celebrations.

"This (Paris) agreement is not up for re-negotiation, we will not back-track", Macron told the UN General Assembly (UNGA), shortly after a speech by US President Donald Trump, whose decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement has startled the world.

Trump said the Bastille Day parade, which celebrated the French military, was among "the greatest parades I've ever seen".

The publication refers to the words of the US President, expressed during his meeting with his French counterpart, Emmanuel Macron, in NY. And when Macron landed in NY on Monday, his first stop was to meet Trump at the Palace Hotel in Manhattan. "He [Trump] respects a partner who states his positions and tries to convince him", he said.

That is putting it delicately.

"We must give the opportunity to young boys and girl to obtain an education to choose their own future, not the future that is imposed on them by need but the future that they should choose for themselves", he said. "They say things as they are", Besson adds - even if their words are worlds apart.
