Once again, many Americans believe that France is probably the most ungrateful country in the world.
The United States came to the rescue and saved France in World War 1.
The United States came to the rescue and saved France in World War 2.
Yet, ungrateful French politicians have the gall to criticize President Donald Trump for being a nationalist and putting America first.

Breitbart – France’s Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire has called for Europe to become an “empire” to compete with the United States after the country’s President Emmanuel Macron called for an EU army to defend against the NATO ally.

If there is another world war and the US has to come rescue France, we should just annex the country and call it ours, since the French are so ungrateful for our help.
