Germany and France ‘insult’ America by broaching idea of separate ‘European army’

LD: Angela Merkel (Germany) and Emmanuel Macron (France) have succeeded in angering Donald Trump by suggesting it’s time Europe got its own army, thereby dispensing with the need for the US and NATO which have managed so far to keep Europe safe from all external enemies since WWII. Trump has rightly taken the position that Merkel and Macron have made an “insulting” suggestion, though the article below sees it differently. Macron’s comment that Europe needs its own army if only to defend itself one day from a hostile America can only, in my view, be described as insolent and provocative. This is almost like a wife telling her husband, “I need a bodyguard to protect myself from you — that is, in case you turn nasty!” [LD]
