Macron uses laws and sausages to deflect Trump call question

A phone call between Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron last week reportedly went badly, after Macron berated Trump for his trade policies, a media report claims. "Just bad. It was awful". One CNN source said of the pair's call, "Macron thought he would be able to speak his mind, based on the relationship".

"But Trump can't handle being criticised like that".

During a news conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Macron was asked about a CNN report on Monday saying that a phone call between the French leader and Trump last week had been "terrible".

The tariffs were first announced in March but several countries received temporary exemptions.

Macron stressed that there would be a European response, and the EU announced on Friday that it would cease trade negotiations with the United States and slap retaliatory tariffs on $3.3-billion worth of American products, including orange juice, peanut butter, and Harley Davidson motorcycles.

It was during that conversation Macron told Trump that his new USA tariffs on European, Mexican and Canadian goods are illegal and a "mistake". Trump will be receiving a similar call from the British Prime Minister, Theresa May, on Monday.

A White House readout of the Thursday conversation between Trump and Macron noted that trade and immigration were discussed.

The readout said: "Both leaders discussed the migration problem in Libya, and timelines to solve it".

"The Prime Minister raised the USA decision to apply tariffs to European Union steel and aluminum imports, which she said was unjustified and deeply disappointing", the statement said.

The White House did not immediately issue a readout of Trump's call with May.

"This decision is not only illegal, it is a mistake on many points". In an interview with the BBC in January, Macron said he had a "very direct relationship" with his USA counterpart. "It is a mistake because it responds to a worldwide unbalance that exists in the worst ways through fragmentations and economic nationalism", the statement read. "So, I like it when people see the finished meal, but I'm not convinced the kitchen commentary helps with delivering the meal or eating it", Macron told reporters.
