France says US President Donald Trump’s tweets mocking his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron were inappropriate and showed a lack of “common decency”.

On Tuesday, Trump attacked Macron over nationalism, plans for a European army and the French leader’s ratings.

“We were marking the murder of 130 of our people,” French government spokesman Benjamin Griveaux said, referring to the 2015 Paris attacks.

“So I will reply in English: ‘common decency’ would have been the appropriate thing,” he told reporters on Wednesday.
