Macron: France is not Subservient to US

French President Emmanuel Macron has told Donald Trump France is an ally, not a client state, after the US President attacked him in a series of tweets that showed how much their relationship had soured, ABC reports.

Mr Trump had earlier criticised Mr Macron's suggestion that a European army was needed, in part, to reduce reliance on the US military.

Asked in an interview on the Charles de Gaulle aircraft carrier whether he was offended by Mr Trump's tweets, Mr Macron talked at length about the long military alliance between the two countries, from America's War of Independence onwards. 

"At every moment of our history, we were allies, so between allies, respect is due," Mr Macron told TF1 television. "I don't think the French expect me to respond to tweets but to continue this important history."
