French President Emmanuel Macron rejects nationalism in Armistice Day speech

French President Emmanuel Macron has offered a rejection of nationalism in an Armistice Day speech watched on by US President Donald Trump.

Mr Trump has proudly identified as a nationalist as he pushes the 'America First' agenda.

"By saying 'our interests first and never mind the others' you stamp out the most precious thing a nation has – its moral values," Mr Macron said at an event in Paris marking the centenary of the World War One Armistice.

He added that pushing nationalism was a "betrayal of patriotism".

A short time ago, Mr Trump tweeted to thank Mr Macron for what he called a "beautiful ceremony" in the French capital.

Mr Trump did not refer to Mr Macron's remarks in his tweet.
