"We want to help Europe, but it has to be right, at the moment, the burden-sharing has been largely addressed to the United States, as the president will say, and understands it," Trump said. "And he understands that the United States can only do so much, in justice with the United States." Macron told him it was okay. "But it is unjust that today European security is assured only by the United States and we need a much better burden sharing", he said. "That's why I believe we need more European capabilities, more European defense, to take this part of the burden." Scroll down the video

The two world leaders greet the crowd outside the Eliseo, on the eve of the commemoration ceremony for the Armistice DayTrump had begun the short trip to Paris for an event commemorating the end of the first major conflict between nations lying in Macron for his proposed European army but had calmed down when they met Saturday for long talks. The president of the United States told Macron that they started a series of meetings that appreciate France's willingness to pay more for its defense. "We have a lot in common in many ways – perhaps more ways than people will understand," he assessed. "We are very similar in our opinions. And I appreciate what you're saying about burden sharing. "Macron began the session by telling Trump in French that he was" very pleased "to have him back in Paris and discuss the" strategic capacity of Europe "and his desire to take on a larger role in NATO. "I share the views of President Trump that we need much better burden-sharing within NATO, which is why I believe my proposals for European defense are totally consistent with this, because it means more Europe inside NATO, more capacity, to take our share of the weight. And I think it's very fair and it's very important, "he said." During the meeting, Trump said: "We definitely want to be there. We want to help. We want to be part of it. But different countries must also help. It's right. And I think the president – we've already discussed – and the president and I are very much on this. "

Macron welcomes President Trump to Eliseo this morning. President Trump began his Saturday in a good mood, asking "there's something better to celebrate than the end of a war" as he prepared to meet Macron at the Eliseo. at the residence of France, a few meters from the Eliseo, shortly before the meeting, Trump turned his attention to the commemorative event that was in Paris to participate, on the centenary of the cessation of hostilities in the First World War . Trump erroneously reported the facts of the war in the tweet. It was not the bloodiest of its kind. Among the world wars, of which there were two, the balance of the victims of the Second World War, when the United States debuted the atomic bomb, was the highest. The First World War was the bloodiest war of its time, bringing about 8.5 million causalities on the battlefield. But then the Second World War came with its 15 million deaths on the battlefield. The death toll of World War II victims, including civilians, is under discussion, but estimates range from 50 million to 80 million. The attention of Trump in the last days, as would normally be prepared for a trip abroad, has been tense. His political party has beaten in Tuesday's elections and a complaint has revealed that he is aware of a payment that his former lawyer has made to a porn actress to keep quiet about his alleged relationship with the future president. As the president landed in Paris, he apparently became aware for the first time of the observations Macron had made at the start of the week on the need for a European army. "Very offensive, but maybe Europe should first pay its fair share of NATO, which the US subsidizes enormously!" Trump replied.

Trump erroneously reported the facts of the war in the tweet. It was not the bloodiest of its kind. Among the world wars, of which there were two, the balance of the victims of the Second World War, when the United States made the atomic bomb debut, was the highest that Macron expressed during the six-day tour of the historic French sites of the First World War. He said that the continent will not be able to protect itself until it establishes a "real European army" and will stop relying so heavily on the United States. "We must protect ourselves against China, Russia and even the United States of America," Macron said. Trump had tweeted throughout his flight on presumed electoral drama at home. When he landed he claimed that Macron "suggested that Europe build its own military to protect itself from the United States, China and Russia", even though the French leader did indeed comment a few days earlier on 6 November. The American president and the first lady Melania Trump will spend the weekend in France as part of a program for dignitaries celebrating the centenary of the cessation of hostilities in the First World War in which Russian President Vladimir Putin also participates. "It should be a very nice period of time, the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War," Trump, who apparently was not aware of Macron's remarks, said earlier on Friday before leaving the White House. "We have many countries – there will be executives from many countries, especially because they have heard that the United States will be present".

I think we've made a lot of progress. "We'll see if we can get over the line, as they say." We'll see what happens. "But trade is very important." Trump said the Terrorism is another topic you wish to address. "And let's see what happens in the world, and it's not a good image, but we've made a lot of progress."

Trump will see Russian Vladimir Putin in Paris, but they will wait until the G20 summit to hold a formal meeting in Argentina. In last week's remarks, Macron recognized the tension between the two world powers and stressed that Europe must learn to defend itself, without only depending on the United States "and will not be able to do so" unless we decide to have a real European army. "His proposal recognized the reality of the" America First "doctrine and the imperturbable nationalism that pushed Trump to power two years ago and was reaffirmed by vast areas of the country last Tuesday. wake, Trump has left a vacuum of power that the US allies fear that China and Russia will fill in. Somehow dampened the rise of countries with penalties and tariffs for malicious activities such as interference elections and theft of intellectual property, but acted against them only when it is in the direct interests of the United States. "There is a growing concern, given Trump's rhetoric, which sees the continent you and in particular the EU as an opponent to destabilize and undermine and not as the closest friend of America, "said Dalibor Rohac, researcher at the American Enterprise Institute, at DailyMail .com before the start of the trip. "His good personal relationship with Emmanuel Macron provides at least some hope that progress can be made".
