In 1942 the Free French wouldn't allow American troops to set foot on New Caledonia. Admiral Halsey sent his personal Marine rifle platoon ashore and threw the French Governor out of his house and Bull Halsey moved in. The French weren't the best allies during WW ll.
Don't even want to get into the French Indochina War where the French having an inferiority complex by now refused to listen to our military advisor's until it was to late.
France doesn't like America or Americans because they are jealous of America and they want to return to the days of being a world power if not a super power.
