Trump Macron clash on trade and return of ISIS terrorists
During a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron on the sidelines of the NATO summit in London, President Trump hopes the two nations will be able to resolve the trade dispute, possibly through some "mutually beneficial tax."
President Trump acknowledged a "minor dispute" over a French digital service tax and U.S. threats to impose new tariffs on French cheese, wine and other products.
President Trump also took on the European Union saying it was formed in part to "take advantage of the United States" and that he will take measures to correct the unfair trade situation.
The increasingly tense relations between Trump and Macron were on display when the subject of Islamic State terrorists surfaced.
Trump said many of the terrorists who remain detained in the Middle East are from France, Germany and Britain.
Trump said the two leaders did agree on relations with Russia, insisting they both believe "it's a good thing to get along with Russia."
Trump also said the U.S. and Russia are both interested in working out a new treaty on nuclear weapon proliferation after the U.S. pulled out of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty with Russia in August.
