“Land of Shit”: France’s Emmanuel Macron Condemns Trump’s Remarks

Emmanuel Macron condemned on Sunday the words of Donald Trump, who described African nations and Haiti as “shitty country”.

”  I think a lot of our problems in the Middle East and Africa are due to a lot of frustration, a lot of past humiliation and we have to understand that and I really believe, that we have to respect all countries. That’s what we owe them and it’s much more efficient . ”

”  It’s not a classic politician, ” Emmanuel Macron said of the US president, who is celebrating the first anniversary of his presidency this weekend.

A “very good relationship” despite disagreements

”  We have a very good relationship “. ”  I want to work with him and we have built a strong relationship ,” he said, adding that both of them ”  disagree on many issues “.

”  I call him very regularly, I am always extremely direct and frank, ” said Emmanuel Macron, explaining: ”  sometimes, I manage to convince him, sometimes I fail .”

He described the prolific and controversial tweets of the US president as “a  mixture of personal and political reactions “. ”  I think it’s not feasible when you’re president of a Republic like the United States  .”
