Donald Trump’s faux pas demotes Frenchman Emmanuel Macron to prime minister


President Donald Trump likes to poke fun at the verbal lapses of his rival Joe Biden, but on Saturday he made his own blunder by shooting and demoting French President Emmanuel Macron.Trump’s mistake in demoting Macron to the post of prime minister came as he spoke at a campaign rally in Michigan, one of several stops he made in the last three weeks of the presidential race as he trails Democrat Biden in the polls.

Trump had spoken of the old NAFTA trade deal with Canada and Mexico, which he called a bad deal for America and insisted on renegotiating, when he turned to Macron and the Paris agreement on climate change.

Trump, who questions the science behind global warming, pulled the United States out of this historic global deal in 2017, saying it was costing the United States jobs.

“And you know what else I stopped?” The Paris environmental accord, ”Trump said.

“And I really like Prime Minister Macron. But I said “how are you over there? How’s the deal going? “They’re not doing too well,” Trump said.

“I saved you billions of dollars, no one else would. I said it was a disaster, they basically wanted to take our wealth. ”

Trump used to have some sort of bromance relationship with Macron, but their ties cooled over the years and featured a so-called handshake war – in which Macron emulated the American president’s bent. to tremble hard and not to let go.

In a 2019 bilateral meeting in France, Macron grabbed Trump’s hand so long and firmly that he left a white thumbprint on it.
