It was no secret who Donald Trump wanted to win the French election. Trump openly supported Marine Le Pen and has clashed with Macron over key political issues.
This relationship has taken a surprising turn. It seems as if Trump and Macron have developed some type of bromance. This bromance has shown us who the Alpha Male really is.
In a joint Press Conference with Emmanuel Macron Donald Trump responded from a tough question about his comments on France’s security.
President Donald Trump teased Emmanuel Macron after praising him as a “tough president” who would keep France safe, saying Thursday “you’d better do a good job” or Trump would look bad.
At a joint press conference for the two heads of state, a reporter confronted Trump with prior remarks he made that suggested Paris, France, was infected by terrorism and no longer safe due to the French government’s lax attitude toward letting foreigners enter their country.
“Do you still believe that France is not able to fight terrorism on its own territory?” the reporter asked.
Trump called the question “a beauty.”
“It’s going to be just fine, because you have a great president,” Trump said. “You have somebody that’s going to run this country right … You have a tough president. He’s not going to be easy on people that are breaking the laws and people that show this tremendous violence, so I really have a feeling that you’re going to have a very peaceful and beautiful Paris. And I’m coming back.”
Trump paused and looked over at Macron.
“You’d better do a good job, please. Otherwise you’re going to make me look very bad,” he said, smiling.
“And you’re always welcome,” Macron said.
Trump is in France at Macron’s invitation to celebrate Bastille Day and the historic alliance between France and the United States.
What is funny about this is you can tell Donald Trump is playing with the stooge that Macron is. When he is asked about if he thinks Paris is safe he claims Macron is a great president. He then follows this up with “You’d better do a good job, please. Otherwise you’re going to make me look very bad” Him saying this is pretty much him taking Macron to task without calling him out. The look on Macron’s face throughout this exchange is one of a man who is trying not to wet his pants. Macron is a slimy establishment politician who is Merkel’s European puppet.
Together they form a duo to rule Europe and force countries worldwide to submit to their demands. Trump has slapped that idea in the face as it pertains to America.
I’ll now move onto the 30 second handshake that took place between President Trump and Emmanuel Macron.
How cringe worthy is that handshake? In this handshake Trump is playing that role of one of your relatives that you would shake hands with as a child. You know the one where the relative would squeeze your hand tight and you in turn would try to apply pressure to his hand and make him feel it. Now, between you and your relative this is nothing more than a joke. Between Trump and Macron it is a subtle fight for dominance. Trump grabs Macron’s hand and continues to hold it. Macron realizing that he is still a beta-male tries to pull away but it is just to late. Trump has locked him in and he won’t let go for another 29 seconds.
Although I am obviously mocking CNN’s extreme coverage of every handshake Trump gives there is something to be said about Trump’s track record with foreign leaders. Every leader Trump meets with leaves knowing Trump is sticking up for America. Don’t people understand that is why Merkel and Macron don’t like him in the first place? Merkel loved Obama. Obama was the guy who was fine selling America out to foreign countries. Obama was the guy who was fine using Americas money for the benefit of every country but our own. So, CNN next time Trump takes a trip to foreign country you should already have a headline for the article pre-written “The alpha-male strikes again”
