'Patriotism, not nationalism': Macron takes on Trump's worldview

What a dramatic setting for a fundamental argument. Donald Trump took his seat while a cold steel rain beat down on Paris' Arc de Triomphe for the 100th anniversary commemorations of the end of WWI. The US president had thrown his weight around on Twitter, belittling his French counterpart's call for a European defence force. That was before he had to stand alongside sometime nemesis Angela Merkel while Macron delivered a speech that clearly sounded like a lecture on history directed at him.
