French President slams Donald Trump's Nationalist ideology during speech
Emmanuel Macron, the President of France, recently said that 'Nationalism is a betrayal of Patriotism' right in front of Donald Trump.
The U.S. President attended a ceremony on Sunday, November 11, 2018, commemorating the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.
As reported by NBC News, Trump seemed shocked by Macron's words but did nothing more than staying silent and clapping at the end of his speech.

AN UNEXPECTED SPEECH
Macron's remark was done in front of over 80 other world leaders invited to the ceremony and right after Trump confessed being a nationalist.
"A globalist is a person that wants the globe to do well, frankly not caring about our country so much, and you know what, we can't have that. I'm a nationalist. Ok? I'm a nationalist. Nationalist. Use that word.”

MACRON'S FEARLESS STATEMENT
According to Macron, by saying that a nation's interests come first, that nation is losing its greatest assets, and what it gives it life and makes it special: 'its moral values.'
So far, the White House is yet to issue a statement regarding the French President's words, but Trump broke the silence during the afternoon to focus on the visit to the cemetery outside of Paris to honor the fallen soldiers.
It has been reported that Sarah Sanders, the White House press secretary, that Trump's speech would revolve around 'honoring the Americans who fought and died in World War One' and the duty of remembering their sacrifices.
SARAH SILVERMAN'S TWO CENTS
Two days after Trump's confession to being a Nationalist, Sarah Silverman took a jab at the President by saying that he was finally heard saying the 'N-word.'
The famous comedian compared Trump to Adolf Hitler, who also considered himself a Nationalist, and claimed that his 'bigotry was no longer masked by his rhetoric.'
