France Fires Back in Scathing Message to Donald Trump



France’s government eloquently responded after Trump’s series of critical tweets aimed at French President EmmanuelMacron.

A government spokesperson for France, Benjamin Griveaux, released a statement following President Donald Trump’s criticizing tweets. According to ABC News, Griveaux said on Wednesday:

“We were commemorating the assassination of 130 of our compatriots three years ago in Paris and Saint-Denis, and so I will reply in English: ‘Common decency’ would have been appropriate.”

After receiving intense backlash during his weekend visit to France, Trump took to his social media account to air his irritation and to unleash a series of tweets against French President Emmanuel Macron.

Macron made it known during a CNN interview that he prefers to conduct diplomacy through “direct discussion” rather than through tweets, Hill Reporter shared on Sunday.

However, not everyone in France is being as diplomatic. Yann Barthès, the host of French talk show Quotidien, told Trump: “Go and f**k yourself, you are not welcome in this county.“

Trump and Macron previously shared a rather cordial relationship, with Trump once stating they had a “very really good relationship, very special.”
