US President Donald Trump and French leader Emmanuel Macron held a “very constructive” bilateral meeting on Saturday, an official in the French presidency said.

The two leaders met hours after Trump was scathing in a tweet of Macron’s suggestion earlier this week that Europe needed a European army to bolster its defence capacities and reduce its dependence on the United States.

The Elysee Palace official said there had been a “misunderstanding” and that Trump, who had tweeted that Macron’s comments were “very insulting”, had told Macron in their meeting: “I think we are much closer than it seems.”
