President Biden went for a bike ride to the beach on Sunday amid several national crises and refused to answer reporters’ questions as he passed them.

“Mr. President, what will you say to Emmanuel Macron? A reporter asked as Biden accelerated.

“When are you going to call Macron?” another reporter asked.

Biden is expected to call on French President Emmanuel Macron to resolve a diplomatic crisis that developed over the past week. France recalled its ambassadors to the United States and Australia in response to a joint agreement between the United States, Australia and UK to supply nuclear submarines to Australia, thus canceling a previous agreement to send French-made submarines down.

“At the request of President Macron, I decided to immediately recall our ambassadors in the United States and Australia in Paris for consultations,” French Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs Jean-Yves Le Drian said on Friday. in a press release.

“The abandonment of the ocean-class submarine project that Australia and France had been working on since 2016 and the announcement of a new partnership with the United States to explore the possibility of future cooperation on nuclear-powered submarines constitute unacceptable behavior between allies and partners; their consequences affect the very conception that we have of our alliances, our partnerships and the importance of the Indo-Pacific for Europe, ”the statement added.

Earlier in the week, Le Drian told French radio that the deal, seen as a challenge to China’s presence in the region, was a “stab in the back.” He also compared President Biden to the old President Trump.

“This brutal, one-sided and unpredictable decision reminds me a lot of what Mr. Trump was doing,” Le Drian said. “I am angry and bitter. This is not done between allies.”
