French Prime Minister Emanuel Macron threw the mother of all tantrums earlier this year when a deal France was working on with Australia for defensive submarines fell through. The whole situation made headlines, and the French, reportedly, was so disgusted with the United States for interfering, claiming that they were blindsided by the deal’s collapse and the US stepping in, that they pulled all of their diplomatic officials from the US.
A newly revealed text message from French President Emmanuel Macron indicated he knew a multibillion-dollar submarine deal with Australia was on the rocks days before the Land Down Under announced a nuclear sub pact with the US and the UK…
A report by the Australian Financial Review also suggests that Macron played up the rift between the US and its oldest ally to extract a groveling statement of contrition from the American president at last week’s G20 summit in Rome.
The AFR reported this week that two days before the deal known as AUKUS was announced to the world on Sept. 15, Macron messaged Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison to ask: “Should I expect good or bad news for our joint submarines ambitions?”
So, Macron knew or at least suspected ahead of time, that the deal was off. The Biden people are sure he knew about it.
“I think what happened was — to use an English phrase, what we did was ‘clumsy,’” Biden said. “It was not done with a lot of grace. I was under the impression certain things had happened that hadn’t happened.”
When pressed by a reporter to clarify what he meant, Biden said: “I was under the impression that France had been informed long before that the deal was not going through. I honest to God did not know you had not been.”
Well, that adds a new spin to the whole situation.
Macron told Australia’s Morrison that he doesn’t like to lose. Evidence of that was obvious in the aftermath of the deal sinking. Now the world knows that the little man has a vindictive streak, and he’s not afraid to use it.
