Trump's continued complaints about France and Macron hit a nerve with some in the European nation, especially since Trump delivered his latest broadsides on the third anniversary of the Paris terror attacks that killed 130 people in 2015.
Griveaux was responding to a barrage of tweets from Trump on Tuesday, in which he mocked President Macron's low approval ratings, complained about France's "unfair" trade policy on products including wine, and criticized France for its near defeat to Germany in both world wars.
In a speech undoubtedly aimed at Trump's brand of "America First" nationalism, Macron called nationalism a "betrayal of patriotism". Trump has embraced the "nationalist" label despite its negative connotations.
On Tuesday, Mr Trump attacked Mr Macron over nationalism, plans for a European army and the French leader's ratings.
In a caustic series of early-morning tweets the USA president lambasted Macron's support for a European army, while renewing his frequent charge that America's European allies in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation spend too little on defense. "T$3 here is no country more Nationalist than France, very proud people-and rightfully so!"
He followed soon after with a second caustic tweet in which he accused France of engaging in unfair trade practices with regard to imports and exports of French and United States wine.
White House Director of Strategic Communications Mercedes Schlapp, meanwhile, cast Trump's Paris trip in a positive light.
He also added: "Pay for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation or not!"
"We have never posed any threat to Europe", Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said, when asked about the issue at a daily press briefing in Beijing.
Although Macron's response was restrained on Wednesday, his government spokesman showed Trump's criticism had struck a chord.
However, President Macron's office said the United States leader misunderstood the comments.
Many others posted photos and reference to the football victory.
The weekend started uncomfortably.
On November 9, President Trump took a dig at President Macron by claiming he was "very insulting" to suggest that Europe build its own military in order to protect itself from the U.S., China and Russian Federation.
Macron suggested in a speech in Paris that Europe should build an army to protect against China, Russia, and the United States.
