That said, French President Emmanuel Macron came fairly close to perfection in his description of the world he envisions and wants imposed on the United States. It is a vision that, undoubtedly, will nauseate, infuriate, and worry those Americans who believe – as President Trump’s claims to – in an “America First”, non-interventionist foreign policy.
What is wrong with Macron? Macron demonstrated that he is either supremely arrogant and believes his vision – more properly the EU’s vision – is brilliant, unquestionably right, supremely moral, and cannot be challenged, or his intelligence services have utterly failed to provide him the data necessary to understand that Trump was not elected to conduct a steady-as-she-goes foreign policy. In his arrogance or ignorance, Macron reminded the pro-Trump citizenry of the hell that awaits them, their money, their republic, and their children’s lives if the Macron-voiced-vision of the internationalists’ “21st century world order” carries the day. Only a moron, it seems to me, would be uniformed about how much contemporary Americans hate a politician peddling the creation of a new “world order” of any type.
