For President Donald Trump in Paris, "America First" meant largely America alone.He added: "It is time that these very rich countries either pay the United States for its great military protection, or protect themselves".His France trip made clear that, nearly two years after taking office, Trump has dramatically upended decades of American foreign policy posture, shaking allies. With Trump and other leaders looking on, Macron took on the rising tide of populism in the United States and Europe and urged leaders not to turn their backs by turning inward.Trump did engage with his fellow leaders, attending a group welcome dinner hosted by Macron at the Musee d'Orsay Saturday night and a lunch Sunday.But Trump was terse during some of his private conversations with world leaders, according to people with direct knowledge of his visit. Trump responded with a wide smile.National security adviser John Bolton had said at one point that Putin and Trump would meet in Paris, but they will instead hold a formal sit-down later this month at a world leaders' summit in Buenos Aires.
