During a private meeting in Washington, the US President, Donald trump offered the President of France Emmanuel Makron to secede from the European Union, promising him in that case to provide the best Paris trade agreement.
About this, citing unnamed European officials, reported The Washington Post, reports an Apostrophe.
It is noted that during the discussion of trade, trump asked Him: “Why don’t you leave the EU?”. Then the US President said that if France leaves the Union, Washington will provide it with a bilateral trade agreement with better terms than the EU will get in General.
The White house does not deny this information, although refused to comment.
The Washington Post harshly criticized the US President for this proposal. As writes the edition, such actions trump attacks “one of the foundations of Western order”, and offers to destroy the organization of American allies contrary to officially stated policy of the us government. In addition, he demonstrates a complete misunderstanding of the views of the French President and his voters (macron – a supporter of the EU and Atlanticism, he won the election in 2017, opposing the populist-eurosceptic).
