Facebook allows French regulator to observe hate policy

No sooner had US President Donald Trump touched down in Paris than he fired off a tweet castigating his host over proposals to endow the EU with its own joint army

Facebook will allow French regulators to "embed" inside the company to examine how it combats online hate speech, the first time the wary tech giant has opened its doors in such a way, President Emmanuel Macron said on Monday.

Another sore point for Macron and Trump: the question of a joint European army, which Macron has championed but which could overlap with the USA -led North Atlantic Treaty Organisation alliance.

"Ruining this hope with a fascination for withdrawal, violence or domination would be a mistake for which future generations would rightly find us responsible", he said.

Macron moved quickly to defuse the discord, saying he agrees that Europe needs to do more to defend itself and that his efforts to create more common European Union defense initiatives were moves in that direction.

Netanyahu, who like the Russian leader was in the French capital for World War I commemorations, told journalists he "spoke to many leaders, with President (Donald) Trump of course and also with President Putin".

French President Emmanuel Macron is hosting the gathering at the Elysee Palace, where he and Trump met and had lunch Saturday.

Macron said in an interview this week with Europe-1 radio that when it comes to the cyber-sphere and the threat to pull out of nuclear treaties, "We should protect ourselves when it comes to China, Russia and even the United States".

Trump has made similar arguments, particularly in urging NATO's European members to increase its share of defence spending.

Those who fought in the trenches of World War One lived through an unimaginable hell, Macron said, highlighting that as well as the deaths of 10 million troops, millions of women were widowed and children orphaned.

Trump said that 26,000 Americans were killed in just the last battle of the war alone. "And I'm a strong believer of the fact that this cooperation is good for everybody".

"President Macron of France has just suggested that Europe build its own military in order to protect itself from the US, China and Russian Federation", the US president tweeted, referring to remarks made by Macron three days earlier. Trump lumped the two topics together and tweeted as Air Force One landed in Paris on Friday night that it was "insulting" Macron wanted an army to defend Europe from the U.S.

Trump and Macron also have extensive differences over trade and USA sanctions on Iran, but made little progress in reconciling their views at the Elysee.

On Saturday evening the United States leader was to join Russian President Vladimir Putin, Turkey's Recep Tayyip Erdogan and almost 70 other world leaders at a dinner at the Orsay Museum ahead of Sunday's solemn commemorations at the Arc de Triomphe under which lies the tomb of the Unknown Soldier. The president had been expected to meet with Putin during the visit, but will instead sit down with him formally later this month at a world leaders' summit in Buenos Aires.

Trump later Sunday was to visit the Suresnes American Cemetery and Memorial in the suburbs of Paris, where he will deliver Veterans Day remarks before returning to Washington.
