President Donald Trump reportedly made some bold, and potentially offensive, remarks in private conversations with world leaders at the G7 summit last week.
Trump told Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe he’d be “out of office” if he had to deal with “25 million Mexicans,” and told French President Emmanuel Macron that “all the terrorists are in Paris,” The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday.
Claiming that migration is a huge issue in Europe, he reportedly told Abe: “Shinzo, you don’t have this problem, but I can send you 25 million Mexicans and you’ll be out of office very soon,” a senior European Union official in the meeting in Quebec, told the Journal.
But Trump, who has followed up on his campaign promise to restrict immigration into the U.S., didn’t stop there.
During talks about terrorism and Iran, the U.S. president told Macron: “You must know about this, Emmanuel, because all the terrorists are in Paris,” the EU official said.
Irritation with Trump was in the air, “but everyone tried to be rational and calm,” added the official.
