After Seeing France's Military Parade, Trump Wants An Even Bigger One

Sitting next to French President Emmanuel Macron, Trump said, "We may do something like that on July 4th in Washington down Pennsylvania Avenue". And he said that his goal would be to "try to top" what France did.

But it also underscores just how simple-minded Trump's view of foreign policy is.

"Mostly because of what I've witnessed, I'm thinking about doing something like this on July 4 in Washington, Pennsylvania Avenue", the U.S. president said. United States allies in Europe, along with many of Trump's critics in Washington, fear this could trigger a new Middle East arms race and diplomatic crisis even as the world faces an aggressive nuclear-armed Pyongyang. Whether or not this will actually happen again in the United States remains to be seen, but let's calm down with accusing Trump of being a dictator.

As for the intractable conflict in Syria, Macron proposed forming a "contact group" to help end the six-year war.

"If we don't resolve the Syrian problem with Iran around the table, then we will not have an efficient response because Iran today is among the powers that have an influence on the ground", Macron said.

Trump was very open to considering a number of different options as long as they were fair to America's interests, which include promoting the economy and protecting the environment, the official said.

Paris is trying to set up an worldwide contact group on Syria to revive stalled peace talks in Geneva, but Trump's anti-Iran stance has partly complicated those efforts. "And I think we really, we're looking forward to doing that". As an European Union country and a permanent member of the UN Security Council, France has been a vocal supporter of the nuclear agreement.

The French president added that he "respects" Trump's decision to pull the United States out of the climate deal unless he can get a better deal.

Trump said that the world could not let a "murderous regime" continue to destabilise the Middle East while also "building unsafe missiles" and that the USA "cannot abide by an agreement if it provides cover for the eventual construction of a nuclear programme". He said he was impressed by the military parade in central Paris in July, when he was visiting the French capital.
