Macron, Trump Face Off in Charm Contest

Macron, Trump Face Off in Charm Contest

The French President also pressed for an global consensus for achieving peace in war-torn Syria and said, "Together, in the long run, we can find a solution to the Syrian situation".

He highlighted the joint cooperation needed in Syria, even as Trump has said he wants to withdraw troops.

In a solo news conference before his return home Wednesday night, Macron said that he was under no illusions about Trump's views on the Iran deal.

Asked how he could say he was "extremely pleased" about his three-day visit here and praise his warm relationship with Trump while outlining positions opposite to those of the USA president on climate, trade and a host of other issues, Macron said: "I think it's life".

It was unclear whether Macron made substantial progress in his efforts to prevent Trump from pulling out of the deal.

Rep. Dina Titus, D-Nev., said it was an honor to welcome Macron to the United States and to maintain "the relationship with our nation's oldest ally".

Meeting Macron in the Oval Office after a colorful welcome ceremony in honor of the French leader, Trump heaped scorn on the nuclear accord negotiated by his predecessor, former president Barack Obama, and aimed at stopping Iran from getting a nuclear weapon.

Mr Macron made changing the USA president's mind on Iran a top priority for his visit but ended up admitting there was a "big risk" Mr Trump would abandon the deal.

"We hope the USA side should do more things that go with the law of economic development and conform to the trend of world economic development, which will be truly conducive to the long-term stable development of itself and the global economy".

"If Trump exits the deal, Iran will surely pull out of it ..." He will decide by May 12 whether to restore US economic sanctions on Tehran, which could be a first step to ending the deal.

Overcapacity in the global steel and aluminum markets is not the result of excess production in France or the European Union, and those countries should be permanently exempt from the US' metals tariffs, French President Emmanuel Macron said Tuesday. "It was not an in-your-face criticism of the Trump administration, but it was quite clear to anybody's who's been following the issues that he was staking out a very different position than the Trump administration and he was getting more than just a polite smattering of applause from Republicans and Democrats for it". Afterward, Democratic Senate leader Chuck Schumer said Macron's call for global engagement was timely.

"He is doing a great job. he will be a great President of France", he said. "A commercial war.is not consistent with our mission, with our history, with our current commitments for the global security. This is a great honor and seldom allowed to be done.he will be GREAT!"

Mr Macron told Congress he was confident the U.S. will rejoin the climate agreement in the future.

Trump is a hosting a state dinner for Macron Tuesday evening, a high honor not afforded to all visiting leaders.

But the Iran deal was the centerpiece of this week's talks. "I never said, 'I will convince Mr. Trump,'" said Macron, raising his fist and using a mocking tone. Trump also threatened Tehran with retaliation if it restarted its nuclear program.

"I'm sure one day the US will come back again to join the Paris agreement", Macron predicted.

He said France remains committed to the bottom line goal of preventing Iran from developing nuclear weapons. Not now. Not in five years.

Mr Rouhani accused Mr Trump of lacking in experience. He said that since becoming defense secretary in January 2017, he also has read what he called a classified protocol in the agreement.

US Sen. Dan Sullivan, R-Alaska, speaks to reporters after delivering an address to a joint session of the Alaska Legislature Feburary 26, 2018, in Juneau, Alaska. German Chancellor Angela Merkel will be in Washington Friday and will reiterate Macron's message about staying in the accord.
