U.S. officials criticise Macron for putting pressure on Trump ahead of G7 Summit – Reports

Pressure

According to the publication, a flurry of criticism hit Macron after he had invited Trump to an impromptu lunch, during which the parties discussed a number of issues, including Iran and Amazon wildfires.

 Such a one-on-one lunch was not planned in advance, the newspaper stressed.

Members of the U.S. presidential administration accused the French president of focusing on such “niche” issues as climate change and the development of Africa, which meet his own political interests, the publication said.

According to a senior French official, the French president used lunch to explain his position on controversial issues, in particular, tensions in world trade.

The Group of Seven (G7) Summit officially opened in the city of Biarritz in southwestern France.
