Trump also launched on attack on the French president over this call for a European army, a proposal the United States leader earlier had dubbed "insulting". "He was just trying to get onto another subject", Trump posted.
Still, in his tweets on Wednesday, Mr Trump criticised France, accusing it of imposing unfair trade tariffs, and Mr Macron of trying to divert attention from what the United States president described as a "very low Approval Rating" and the French unemployment figures. "Not fair, must change!", the President Tweeted.
On November 9, President Trump took a dig at President Macron by claiming he was "very insulting" to suggest that Europe build its own military in order to protect itself from the U.S., China and Russian Federation.
"They were starting to learn German in Paris before the USA came along", Trump said, in a low blow sure to gall French allies. Pay for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation or not!
"The United States are our historic ally and will continue to be".
U.S. President Donald Trump launched verbal assaults Tuesday on France and President Emmanuel Macron, citing his low voter approval ratings and attacking French tariffs on U.S. wine exports and failure to meet NATO's defense spending goal.
Mr Macron's response to Mr Trump's Twitter storm was more subdued than his finance chief's.
During a celebration for the 100th anniversary of the armistice that ended World War I, Macron criticized nationalism. Macron's promotion of a "true European army" that would include members of the European Union is also meant to be a rebuke of nationalism, although many experts say the idea is not operational.
Trump derided key USA allies after returning to the United States from Paris, where he joined Macron, Merkel and other world leaders for a ceremony marking the centennial of the armistice that ended World War I.
Asked whether Mr Trump's four tweets were unpleasant and inelegant, the French leader answered: "You summed up everything".
Trump responded as he landed in France by describing the remarks as "very insulting".
Macron's office on November 13 said his position regarding European defense was "very clear" and that he would not make any comments regarding Trump's tweets. "Nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism", he said on Sunday.
