Hollande tells Trump EU doesn’t need his advice

French President Francois Hollande has replied bluntly to Donald Trump’s criticism of the European Union, saying the EU “has no need for outside advice” in its affairs.

“I say it here, Europe will always be willing to pursue transatlantic cooperation, but it will determine its path on the basis of its own interests and values,” Hollande says at a ceremony in Paris for outgoing US ambassador Jane Hartley.

“It has no need for outside advice to tell it what it has to do.”
