The president tackles Washington on protectionism and meditates in Arlington

Military salutes, cannon shots and red carpet before dinner with great fanfare. Emmanuel Macron’s state visit to the United States reaches its climax this Thursday, with in particular the joint press conference of the French president and Joe Biden expected at the end of the afternoon (around 11:30 a.m. in Washington).

Several subjects should be swept away by the two heads of state: war in Ukraine, economy, space conquest. And Joe Biden should not fail to react to the small outing of his counterpart on Wednesday, who denounced Washington’s “super aggressive” measures to defend his industry and fight against inflation, which risk, according to the head of the State, to suffer French companies.

Everything was back to normal with a wreath laid in Arlington Cemetery, then with a private dinner with the Biden couple at a restaurant in Washington. For the latest information on this state visit, here is the recap of our political journalist Rachel Garrat-Valcarcel, present in the federal capital.
