He’s only just gotten off the plane from France, where he was supposedly commemorating the dead 100 years after the end of the First World War—now Donald Trump is ridiculing the country for its losses during the conflict. Clearly upset about the disastrous trip—which included having his idea of “nationalism” criticized to his face by French President Emmanuel Macron—Trump went on the offensive Tuesday morning. He mocked Macron’s approval rating and France’s unemployment rate, and criticized the tariffs it charges for French wine. But in the comment most likely to upset the French and all veterans, he ridiculed its losses in the World Wars. “Emmanuel Macron suggests [the EU] building its own army to protect Europe against the U.S., China and Russia,” he wrote. “But it was Germany in World Wars One & Two - How did that work out for France? They were starting to learn German in Paris before the U.S. came along. Pay for NATO or not!”
