Graham: Macron Is Trying To Pick A Fight With Trump

Politico reports:

Sen. Lindsey Graham said Sunday that French President Emmanuel Macron’s perceived swipe at President Donald Trump is because the leader of America’s oldest ally is facing his own internal problems.

“I think he’s got a political problem at home, and I think he’s picking a fight with President Trump to play good politics,” the South Carolina Republican told host Margaret Brennan on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”

Whatever the reason for Macron’s words, Graham said Republican presidents have always received an icy reception on the other side of the Atlantic. “Republican presidents always have a hard time in Europe, and I’m not really worried about this at all,” he said.
