Macron convinced Trump will see United States interests lie inside Paris climate deal

US President Donald Trump told his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron here that he believed the Paris climate agreement was "badly negotiated" and was unfair to Washington.

"I was your guest at Bastille Day, and it was one of the greatest parades I've ever seen", Trump told Macron on Monday at the UN.

The publication refers to the words of the US President, expressed during his meeting with his French counterpart, Emmanuel Macron, in NY. If he follows through he'll get hammered by critics for militarism, particularly by linking military power to the patriotic impulses felt on July 4th, but nationalists will love it. America is in many ways a declining power, albeit not militarily; frankly, we probably *have* reached the stage of imperial insecurity where rolling an ICBM down Pennsylvania Avenue is needed for a national ego boost.

Trump watched enthusiastically from a reviewing stand on July 14 as the French military showcased its tanks and fighter jets, including many US -made planes, along the famed Champs-Elysees. "We're thinking ... of having a really great parade, to show our military strength".

Google may invest $1 billion in Lyft
That relationship, though, became more complicated when Alphabet's Waymo sued Uber this year for alleged theft of trade secrets . In July, Lyft announced it was forming an autonomous auto division that would be based in Palo Alto, California.

Emails obtained by The Huffington Post showed Trump's staff asked the Pentagon about including military tactical vehicles in his inaugural parade.

"It was military might, and I think a tremendous thing for France, for the spirit of France, and people don't know what great warriors they are in France", Trump said, adding that he would like to showcase America's military might in a similar fashion. "I don't know, we're gonna have to try to top it".

The U.S. capital has held large military displays to mark significant occasions, including victories in war, but rolling tanks and marching troops down Pennsylvania Avenue are not typically done on the U.S. Independence Day holiday. Indeed, historically the United States has scorned the large military parades in nations like North Korea as signs of a childish nation obsessed with its own sense of military might. The parade usually includes military vehicles and flyovers, and Trump was visibly happy during the event.
