The president is arguably having the worst week of his very short tenure as president of the United States. From his shady firing of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, to the altercation that he caused between CNN’s Jim Acosta and a White House staffer, to yet another mass shooting under his watch, Donald Trump is wishing he had stayed is his bouji Manhattan apartment right about now.
Trump landed in Paris, France for a short trip on Friday, and upon his arrival, simply couldn’t resist the urge to bash the president of France, and one of our allies, Emmanuel Macron. Check out what Trump posted to his Twitter page like a coward:
President Macron of France has just suggested that Europe build its own military in order to protect itself from the U.S., China and Russia. Very insulting, but perhaps Europe should first pay its fair share of NATO, which the U.S. subsidizes greatly!

That’s just like this president to talk badly about a man behind his back, since the only people he has the nerve to attack in person are women. The particular attack is directly related to something Macron said earlier this week:
“We have to protect ourselves with respect to China, Russia and even the United States of America. Who is the main victim? Europe and its security. I want to build a real security dialogue with Russia, which is a country I respect, a European country — but we must have a Europe that can defend itself on its own without relying only on the United States.”
People on Twitter agree that the president is just grasping at straws at this point, and that nothing can be done to reverse his inevitable downfall, which is now in full-swing.
