Donald Trump, in one of his endless tweets, described the very, very great excitement he felt at the idea of being in Paris on the Champs-Élysées, alongside the president and Emmanuel Macron, his host for the 14th of July.
Its very, very great excitement, it could have also eating in the restaurant michelin-starred chef Alain Ducasse on the second floor of the Eiffel tower. The menu (lobster, caviar and noble French wines), however, is not his cup of tea. First, since the death in 1981 of his alcoholic brother, he no longer drinks.
Is it cheeky to say that to this man without culture, Chateaubriand is a steak and Hugo, the first name of the creator of luxury clothing ? As for the delights of the French gastronomic tradition, Donald Trump prefers Porterhouse-steak or Kentucky Fried Chicken, which he loves. And, as written by Jean-Victor Roux in Le Figaro, author of a book on the importance of the meal diplomatic in the story, Trump eats like it twitte.
The French president, inviting him to the presidential stand on the most beautiful avenue in the world, reveals his character. This young politician, educated, cultured, trained by the institutions that are creating the elite of French, knows that he has to deal with. He was able to lure Donald Trump with skill.
In fact, we know of the admiration that this former student of the military academy of New York, dedicated to the men in uniform who obey the orders and know how to walk the walk. Elsewhere, he surrounds himself with soldiers whom he flatters and favours.
With the parade on the Champs-Élysées, it will have been served. All the army corps of earth, sea and sky are represented. And the most popular are always the troops beards spectacular of the foreign Legion whose equivalent does not exist in the United States.
The president Macron, who loves the arts and letters, therefore, the concerts, the opera and the theatre, influenced in this by his wife, would never have been able to move a second time the president Trump in France without this parade an impressive national Festival.
Since the attacks of Nice a year ago, the number of visitors to the U.s. in France has fallen and where Macron has already won, is that Trump’s visit to France and please. This is a time-smoking communication on the part of the new president. It must be remembered that in February last, Donald Trump had warned the Americans by quoting his friend, a man called Jim, a great lover of Paris, who refused to put now the feet in the French capital, ” full of terrorists “.
The president Macron, it is hoped, will not lower the guard in front of this character as unpredictable as untimely. The bonds of friendship between heads of State make it easy without doubt the relationship, but that have in common a head of State, the adept of philosophy and literature, and a “showman” billionaire whack-a-eye-fuelled by deceit and vulgarity ? Meeting Brigitte Macron, he said, ” You’re in such good shape “. What does it add ?
