The 24-year-old, who was part of France's World Cup-winning squad in Russian Federation, replied to Trump, writing: "Don't worry bro" along with two stars, representing the nation's two championships.

The US president wrapped up his critique of the French leader with a call to "MAKE FRANCE GREAT AGAIN!"

In a series of tweets, the USA leader appeared to lash out at the idea of a European army - which Mr Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel recently suggested could be a good idea "one day" - and demanded that France "pay for NATO".

President Donald Trump on Tuesday defended his missing a memorial event to commemorate the end of World War One in France last Saturday.

He said they were "starting to learn German in Paris" during the Nazi occupation in the Second World War "before the USA came along" and saved the day.

He also added: "Pay for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation or not!"

This was not the first time Trump has attacked Macron recently.

A letdown, a triumph or just another way to make us buy stuff we don't need this Christmas? "It could nearly be anyone". The shop, along with 14 further shops across the United Kingdom , will also have a Yamaha piano for customers to play.

The president's trip to France was further clouded by controversy over the cancellation of a visit to a World War I USA military cemetery - after his helicopter was grounded by the rain - a decision that was widely criticized. Washington contributed more than one-third of the total funding to the 29-member alliance in 2017.

"But being an ally doesn't mean being a vassal state". Trump and Macron disagreed on many global issues, including the Paris climate accord, the Iran nuclear deal or Trump's decision to slap tariffs on European metals exports.

"Yesterday was November 13, we were marking the murder of 130 of our people", Griveaux said. Mr Trump appeared to be incensed after critical media coverage of his trip - during which he was called out for cancelling a visit to an American military cemetery after his helicopter was grounded by the rain. "I'm for us. And you know what?" "Or do we want to say we have our economic interests, we consider we will continue to do trade with Iran?" "But we have to help ourselves as well".

Trump criticized French President Emmanuel Macron for his suggestion that the European Union should form a common army that would not rely on the US for defense support. Unemployment in France stood at 9.1 percent in the second quarter of 2018.

"Do we want to be vassals who obey decisions taken by the United States while clinging to the hem of their pants?" Trump's approval rating, despite overwhelmingly negative media coverage, stood at 46 percent on November 13, according to Rasmussen, the pollster which most accurately predicted Trump's victory in 2016. "T$3 here is no country more Nationalist than France, very proud people-and rightfully so!"

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation funding has always been a gripe of Trump's, who said on the 2016 presidential campaign trail that he would consider disbanding the 70-year-old alliance.

He also attacked French wine tariffs, claiming Paris makes it hard for the United States to sell its wines into France but it is easy vice versa. "Not fair, must change!"
