French President Francois Hollande said that the administration of new US President Trump poses “challenges” for Europe.

“There are challenges, frankly, posed by the new US administration in terms of trade regulations, in terms, also, of what our position should be on solving conflicts in the world. So, of course, we have to talk to [US President] Donald Trump because he was chosen by the Americans to be their president, but we have to do it with European conviction and promoting our interests and our values”, Francois Hollande said.

However, French President Hollande has just expressed the usual position generated by dissatisfaction with fact that Donald Trump refuses to pay American money for European security.
