"I believe that this is very much at the heart of the historic alliance between our two countries, and which fully justifies the presence of President Trump today and tomorrow in Paris", Mr. Macron said.

He defended his son's decision to meet a Russian lawyer to get compromising material on Clinton by saying it was "standard" practice in politics. He told her, "You're in such good shape.lovely".

Though Macron did not approve of Trump's decision to pull out of the environmental pact, he did say that he understood the USA president's reasoning, while Trump suggested that he was open to re-entering the pact under different terms.

While the French President appeared to start trying to maneuver Trump around midway into the handshake, The Donald was way too absorbed in it. Some users said that the video made the president look "creepy" while others wondered if the French president is "making a fool" of his US counterpart.

Amid deep disagreements with his host over climate and trade, odds were stacked against a good visit for the US president.

Macron invited Trump to join him for Bastille Day festivities, notes The New York Times. However, Macron added that he will try to persuade Trump on this matter during their meeting.

On Air Force One on the way to Paris, Mr. Trump told reporters that the Russian Federation investigation was only helping him. "You're going to have a very, very peaceful and attractive Paris".

"Beautiful", Trump said, turning to the first lady of France. And I'm coming back.
