Vice President embarks on three-day visit to France

French President Emmanuel Macron visits the Renault Maubeuge Construction Automobile factory in Maubeuge France

The last time the Macrons hosted the Trumps in Paris in July 2017, during Bastille Day celebrations, they whisked them up the Eiffel Tower for a private dinner on the second floor. "I want to help people around the world, but we have to take care of our country, or we won't have a country".

While in Paris, President Buhari will also join other world leaders to commemorate the centenary anniversary of the Armistice signed on November 11, 1918 between the Allied Forces and Germany in the forest of Compiegne in France to end the First World War.

U.S. President Donald Trump lashed out - erroneously - at French President Emmanuel Macron on Friday, saying it was "very insulting" for him to suggest Europe should create its own army to protect itself from potential adversaries.

"President Macron of France has just suggested that Europe build its own military in order to protect itself from the US, China and Russian Federation", the US president tweeted late Friday, referring to remarks made by Macron three days earlier.

"Very insulting, but perhaps Europe should first pay its fair share of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation which the USA subsidizes greatly!"

At the same time, Macron has increasingly been positioning himself as a bulwark against the rising tide of Trump-style populism across Europe, speaking out loudly against the dangers of nationalism and isolationist retreat.

Landing in Paris, he picked a fight with France's President Macron. Europe, he said in Tuesday's Europe 1 radio interview, must reduce its dependence on US after Trump announced he was pulling out of a Cold War-era nuclear treaty.

The rationale behind the idea of creating a European army, which has been floated repeatedly through the years but has yet to materialize, is to lessen Europe's dependence on the whims of the USA politicians, Macron indicated.

Toronto Raptors have a 10-1 record (6-5 against the spread ) so far this season and now sit in the first place of the East. Raptors coach Nick Nurse and Leonard have both previously said they do not consider the injury serious, according to TSN .

Trump pulled up in his limousine Saturday at the Élysée Palace where he was greeted by Macron.

The primary goal of the president's visit, according to the administration official, will be attending ceremonies around the centennial commemoration of the end of World War I.

One of the French president's closest political allies attacked Trump on Saturday morning.

Trump and Macron are schedule to have bilateral meeting during his stay in France.

The dividends of Macron's cultivation of Trump are "modest at best", said Stewart M. Patrick, a fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations. The centennial is Sunday.

Mr Trump's brief visit to Europe comes amid uncertainty about the U.S. relationship with the continent.

Before Sunday's festivities get under way, Trump will meet Saturday with French President Emmanuel Macron.
