Trump arrived in Paris for World War 1 commemorations on Friday night blasting what he termed "very insulting" remarks from Macron who had mentioned the USA alongside China, Russia as national security threats earlier this week.

PARIS President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron worked to project unity today after Trump lashed out at Macron, saying he insulted the USA when he pushed the idea of Europe having its own defense force.

In a recent radio interview, Mr. Macron said Europe needed a strong military to defend itself without relying on the U.S. But he also lumped the U.S.in with China and Russian Federation as possible aggressor nations.

Around 70 world leaders are gathering in Paris for events marking the Armistice that ended World War One, which was signed 100 years ago this Sunday.

The Associated Press reported Saturday that despite the rain, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau visited the Canadian Cemetery No. 2, in Neuville-St.Vaast in northern France Saturday.

Paris was covered in clouds with drizzling rain through most of Saturday.

The idea that Macron would see the United States as an adversary "is totally against our alliance and our 250-year history".

He is also overseeing the formation of a European rapid reaction force, a nine-country endeavour much smaller than an actual army, which is backed by Germany and the UK.

The battle of Belleau Wood proved America's mettle to allies and foes alike, and by the time the war ended United States forces were at least an equal to any of the other major armies, which were exhausted and depleted.

Trump and Macron avoided any criticism of each other in front of the media.

Landing in Paris, he picked a fight with France's President Macron.

Macron echoed those sentiments, saying he wanted Europe to bear a greater share of the defense costs within North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, a point he has made repeatedly since taking office, alongside his ambitions for Europe to have its own military capability.

The US president arrived in Paris on Friday to participate in commemorations for the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.

When Macron went to Washington in April, Trump was unusually affectionate, brushing flecks off the French leader's shoulder that he called dandruff and calling Macron "perfect".

The two leaders early on shared an extremely friendly relationship that was on full display during a state visit in by Mr. Macron to the White House in April.

Trump said that Macron "understands that the United States can only do so much".

After a lunch with Macron and their wives, Melania and Brigitte, Trump was scheduled to visit an American cemetery at Belleau Wood, east of Paris.

"He never said we need a European army against the United States", a statement released by Macron's office said. "Is there anything better to celebrate than the end of a war, in particular that one, which was one of the bloodiest and worst of all time?"

Yet Trump will depart shortly after visiting a memorial site marking the sacrifice of US military troops, leaving town just as Macron's Paris Peace Forum gets underway, a meeting aimed at galvanizing multilateral co-operation on shared challenges, including climate change.
