French President Emmanuel Macron was to address troops at an air base on Thursday as he sought to repair the damage following the resignation of a highly regarded military chief who challenged the government's budget cuts.
Macron flew to the base in Istres, southern France, a day after General Pierre de Villiers quit in the wake of a row over the government's plans to slash 850 million euros ($980 million) from his budget.
De Villiers stepped aside after being publicly slapped down by Macron in front of the troops for telling a parliamentary committee he would not allow the armed forces to be "screwed."
The 39-year-old president's handling of the dispute with the 60-year-old general was widely criticized by his opponents and the press as heavy-handed.
Macron, who last week told the armed forces "I am your boss Dames Adidas Superstar Lotus Print Wit FlowerA F5582 Goedkoop ," stood his ground after de Villiers' departure, saying "it is not the job of the head of the armed forces" to question the budget. He also stood by his pledge to raise the defence budget again in 2018, saying, "I'm behind our troops."
In a sign of his popularity with the rank and file, staff at the defence ministry gave de Villiers a rousing sendoff as he left for the last time on Wednesday Dames Adidas Superstar 2 Print Zwart Goedkoop , forming a guard of honor amid rapturous applause.
The video of his departure was posted on the official Twitter account of the chiefs of staff with the message: "Thank you."
In his resignation statement, the general said he had no choice but to step aside in the face of the planned cuts.

BEIJING, Nov. 6 (Xinhua) -- There's no need to worry that an expected launch of work on a free trade zone would complicate the trade terrain in the Asia-Pacific. Instead Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Goedkoop , it would raise hopes for a solution of the current "spaghetti bowl" dilemma.
Attention has been heightening on the prospects of establishing the Free Trade Area of the Asia-Pacific (FTAAP) as a series of high-profile Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) meetings opened here this week. One of the meeting's outcomes, China expects, could be the start of the FTAAP process.
Those who see the move as China's challenge to the under-negotiation Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and anticipate diplomatic wrestling over it will find their speculations unfounded and unnecessary.
A free trade area has long been a common vision for APEC economies, not a product of China's own wishful thinking.
The FTAAP is not a new idea, nor was it first brought onto the table by China. China suggested feasibility study on the FTAAP in February this year Adidas Superstar Slip On Goedkoop , but it was first proposed in 2004 and written into the declaration of the APEC leaders' meeting in 2006.
