WASHINGTON, 24 Aug — RIA Novosti. The President of the United States Donald trump at the end of the lunch with the President of France Emmanuel Macron promised both countries a lot of good.
“Just had lunch with the President of France Emmanuel Macron. A lot of good stuff happens for both our countries. Big weekend with other world leaders!” he wrote Saturday on Twitter.
Macron took trump in Biarritz, where on Saturday starts the summit “the Big seven”. From the standpoint of the United States one of the most important bilateral topics is the so-called digital tax in France.
