France says Biden acted like Trump to sink Australia defense deal

After being forced out of a lucrative defense deal with Australia for submarines, France accused US President Joe Biden of stabbing it in the back and acting like his predecessor Donald Trump on Thursday.

The United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia announced a security alliance for the Indo-Pacific that will assist Australia in acquiring nuclear-powered submarines from the United States and cancel a $40 billion French-designed submarine deal.
