“The relationship between Emmanuel Macron and Donald Trump is not always easy, but it is continuous. The link between the two presidents exist. Beyond the tweets, what matters is that they speak several times a week, and that they evoke the subjects that disrupt the functioning of the world,” says an adviser to the Elysée palace. According to him, “the tweets are made to the Americans, otherwise they would not be written in English”. “We don’t have to comment on the content that are dedicated to its citizens”, he adds.
