‘My view — I don’t know what your president will decide — is that he will get rid of this deal on his own, for domestic reasons,’ Macron told around a dozen reporters at George Washington University.
When pressed again on whether Trump would ditch the deal, Macron replied: ‘I think so. That’s my view. I don’t have any specific information, I’m not an insider. My view is that there is a big risk he will leave.’
And on Trump’s tendency to pull out of international treaties, the French leader said: ‘It can work in the short term but it’s very insane in the medium to long term,’ he said of the US decision ‘to change [its] opposition so often.’
