Donald Trump tore strips off the EU in a private meeting with France’s President Macron, accusing the Brussels bloc of being ‘worse than China’.
He also waded in on Angela Merkel, accusing Germany of imposing harsh tariffs on US goods.
A source in the room while the US President met Macron claims the French President said: “Let’s work together, we both have a China problem.”
But Trump apparently hit back by saying the EU is ‘worse than China’.
“He then went on a rant about Germany and cars,” the source added.
Trump’s not messing about – he’s calling out the international establishment. The EU is a protectionist club and as a businessman he’s calling them out on it.
