Earlier this month, Macron slammed the North Atlantic Alliance saying it is experiencing ”brain death”. Germany rushed to dismiss this claim, with Chancellor Angela Merkel insisting the alliance is “a cornerstone” of the European Union’s security.
Macron was also criticized for his plan of building a pan-European military, as the US President urged that NATO countries should pay their share of the alliance in the first place.
