Book claims Trump called Macron “a wuss guy” and “120 pounds of fury”

According to a “tell all” book by former Trump aide Stephanie Grisham, Trump called French leader Macron “a wuss guy.”

“He’s a wuss guy. He’s all of a hundred twenty pounds of fury,” Trump said, according to Grisham’s book “I’ll Take Your Questions Now: What I Saw in the Trump White House.”

Per Business Insider:

Trump and Macron had a tense relationship during Trump’s time in office. In 2019, the French leader said the NATO alliance was experiencing a “brain death” and criticized Trump’s decision to pull US troops from Syria without first notifying NATO. Trump called Macron’s comments “a very, very nasty statement” and criticized the state of the French economy.

Grisham, who served in a series of high-level White House roles, wrote that British prime minister Boris Johnson was “one of the few European leaders Trump seemed to tolerate.” She recalled the two engaged in conversations about Australia’s wild animals and gallbladder surgery during meetings at the 2019 G7 summit in Biarritz, France.

Trump has condemned Grisham and her book, claiming his former press secretary and communications director wrote “bad and untrue things” about his administration because she’s “very angry and bitter” over her split from former Trump aide Max Miller.
