President Trump is firing back at his French counterpart, after he suggested Europe should build a military to protect itself from the U.S.

He added instead of building a military, Europe should first pay its fair share of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation costs noting the US pays far more than any other member.

Trump was referring to the recent interview Macron gave to Europe 1 radio, in which he outlined the idea of a combined European army that would be able to protect Europe from Russia, China... and the US.

He wasted no time mixing it up with his host, tweeting as he arrived in France that President Emmanuel Macron had made an "insulting" proposal to build up Europe's military to counter the US, China and Russian Federation.

Macron's office declined to comment on Trump's tweet.

At that meeting, Mr Trump would not say whether he believed Mr Putin or USA intelligence agencies about their conclusions about Russia's interference with the 2016 presidential election.

"I don't know that we're seeing each other in Paris, but we may", Mr Trump said.

"We need a Europe which defends itself better alone, without just depending on the USA".

US President Trump is heading to Paris on Friday for a weekend of ceremonies to mark 100 years since the end of World War I.

Trump has demanded that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation countries spend more on their own defense and has questioned whether the USA should remain in the alliance.

Earlier this summer, Trump imposed steel and aluminum tariffs on Europe, which retaliated with similar duties on American products including bourbon and Harley-Davidson motorcycles.

"We will not protect the Europeans unless we decide to have a true European army".

In his September 2017 "State of the Union" address, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker stated that "By 2025 we need a fully-fledged European Defence Union". European leaders say maintaining trade ties is essential to keep Iran from exiting the deal and restarting development of nuclear weapons.

The trip comes as the White House looks to grapple with a new political reality of Democrats taking the House in Tuesday's midterm elections and the fallout from the president's sudden firing of Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The pair are expected to meet during the G-20 meeting later this month in Argentina, and the White House has invited Putin to visit Washington.

The president and first lady Melania Trump were expected to visit several memorial sites in France that are dedicated to American service members.
