U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday slammed his French counterpart's call for a unified European military to protect against international threats, Anadolu Agencu reports.

"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," he said on Twitter. "Very insulting, but perhaps Europe should first pay its fair share of NATO, which the U.S. subsidizes greatly!"

Macron made the announcement Tuesday during an interview with Europe 1 radio.

"We will not protect the Europeans unless we decide to have a real European army," Macron said, emphasizing Europe needs an army to reduce dependence on the U.S.

Macron said Europe needs to protect itself especially from China, Russia and the U.S.

“When I see President Trump announcing that he’s quitting a major disarmament treaty which was formed after the 1980s Euro-missile crisis that hit Europe, who is the main victim? Europe and its security,” Macron said.
