In most cases, you only need to be more wordy when there is a chance of the statement not being understood properly. I see nothing wrong with the way you have it. There is no reasonable chance to think that the statement could be misinterpreted. A normal person reading that would understand that the "French President" is the "President of France."
Yes, you can with no worries.
The terms are synonymous.
When you say "French President," there is no reason to think that someone could think that is about anyone but the President of France.
Ah, I see your point, but you could quite correctly refer to him as the U.S. President
You have heard of the "British Prime Minister?" Just as acceptable as the "Prime Minister of Britain."
The whole case is avoiding being misunderstood. When I say "U.S. President," I am 100% positive that you know that I am talking about President Obama.
just as certain as I am that you know that I am talking about David Cameron when I say UK Prime Minster, or British Prime Minister.
makes perfect sense especially when you said U.S. President. "Gathering with the U.S. President.
So "Gathering with the French president is perfectly fine
Yes, it is.
i know i come off as an idiot right now but for some odd reason as I was trying to attach images, I became confused with how i would title the subject.
Are you having trouble with your internet connection? You keep flipping in and out of the chat.
sorry I had everything go to my phone
i'm on my computer now and notice that you are typing
Ah, I see. No, you are not an idiot. You had a perfectly reasonably question, based on the way you saw the situation. When you only think of "President of the United States," "French President" does not sound right. Im just gave you an alternate point of view.
thank you. so everything is all good? Gathering with French President
you get where i'm coming from
Yes, it is 100% fine to word it like that.
