France defender Benjamin Mendy gave Donald Trump a quick reminder of their recent World Cup success at Russia
The United States president clashed with France’s President Emmanuel Macron over the latter’s speech on condemning nationalism on Sunday.
“Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism. Nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism,” said Macron, via Goal.
“When we say ‘our interests come first, those of others don’t matter,’ we erase the very thing that a nation holds most precious, that which gives it life and makes it great: its moral values.”
Trump later retaliated on Twitter: “The problem is that Emmanuel suffers from a very low Approval Rating in France, 26%, and an unemployment rate of almost 10%.
“He was just trying to get onto another subject. By the way, there is no country more Nationalist than France, very proud people-and rightfully so!”
He added: “MAKE FRANCE GREAT AGAIN!”
Now Mendy, whose exploits on social media has gathered a lot of interest, pointed out to Trump that France have already achieved greatness through the World Cup.
“Don’t worry bro,” wrote Mendy on Twitter with the two stars that represent France’s two world titles.
Les Bleus won the 2018 World Cup in the summer after defeating Croatia 4-2 in the final at Moscow.
Dont worry bro ⭐️⭐️ https://t.co/dKBsmOjzoL
