US President Donald Trump has suggested his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron a lucrative bilateral trade deal if France agreed to withdraw from the EU, the Washington Post reported on June 28, citing European officials.

“Why don’t you leave the EU?” Trump told Macron during a April 24 meeting at the White House, according to the Washington Post.

The US president allegedly offered France a bilateral trade agreement with “better terms than the EU as a whole gets from the United States.” According to the report, Trump also told Macron that the EU is “worse than China” on trade.

The White House declined to comment on the Washington Post’s report. However, it did not dispute the claims.

The Washington Post’s report comes amid the growing economic tensions between the US and the EU, which started with the White House’s move to impose steep tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from the EU, Canada and Mexico.

In March, the US introduced a 25 percent tariff on steel imports and a 10 percent levy on aluminum imports. EU member starts responded to the move by imposing a 25 percent tax on 2.8 billion euros’ worth of US-made goods.

          Merkel and Macron should be jailed for high-treason and France shall get Marine Le Pen and Germany an AfD-politician => that would be something like Hungary or Italy now

    “Allegedly”

    It is hard to give any credibly to an article when the author admits that it is gossip in the title.
