Emmanuel Macron Rips Trump's ISIS Braggadocio: 'Let's Be Serious'

"Nobody needs North Atlantic Treaty Organisation more than France", said Trump, who himself in the past has questioned the long-term prospects of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation because too few nations are on track to meet the alliance goal of spending at least 2% of GDP on their own defense by 2024.

Reporting afterwards from outside the ambassador's residence where the meeting took place, Al Jazeera's Jonah Hull said both leaders stuck to their positions.

"This is why he is a great politician because that was one of the greatest non-answers I have ever heard, and that's OK", Trump said.

Trump plugged another report due from thr Justice Department soon, this one by the US attorney in Connecticut, John Durham, who has been looking into how USA intelligence agencies went about investigating Russia's election meddling.

"What this will do is keep them from using these items to control these freedom fighters that are fighting there in Hong Kong and significant to stop that", said Blackburn.

In a joint press conference with Nato Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg on Tuesday Trump called Macron's "brain dead" assessment of the military coalition "very insulting" and a "very unsafe statement" to make.

"What we are now experiencing is the brain death of NATO", Mr Macron said.

"I know most of the leaders", Trump said.

"I think we get along with Russia", Trump said, pointing to Macron and saying that he has a similar view.

President Donald Trump offered French President Emmanuel Macron ISIS terrorists who are now being held in Syria, telling him on December 3: "Would you like some nice ISIS fighters?".

Macron said that he saw a waning commitment to the transatlantic alliance by the main guarantor of stability in Europe - the United States - citing Washington's failure to consult the allies before pulling forces out of northern Syria in October.

Macron appeared upset at the comment, which came after Trump described the detained militants.

"I do believe that because I'm hearing the report is very powerful, but I'm hearing that by reading lots of different things, not from inside information", he said.

But Labour has also pointed to a remark Trump made over the summer when he was asked a similar question and gave a broader response.

The meeting kicked off with talk around the new NAFTA, the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement. They are due back in the US on Thursday.

Mr Trump explicitly linked his complaint that Europe does not pay enough for NATO's security missions to his "America First" defence of USA commercial interests, saying it was time for Europe to "shape up" on both fronts.

He said he did not want countries to be "delinquent" and pay less than their share, adding: "Maybe I'll deal with them from a trade standpoint". "We have absolutely nothing to do with it and we wouldn't want to if you handed it to us on a silver platter, we want nothing to do with it".

The alliance has become a cornerstone of Canada's defence from external threats and a driver in its relations with democratic Europe even as it has evolved to face the rise of terrorism, a newly assertive Russian Federation and, more recently, China.

The US President is in London for a NATO Summit this week, and was among a group of fellow world leaders invited to the palace for a reception on Tuesday afternoon.
