White-knuckle handshake giving way to Trump, Macron bromance

Who Is Brigitte Macron? France’s First Lady and President Have Reverse Age Gap of Donald Melania TrumpMore

In the video, Trump and Macron can be seen chatting with the wives after touring Paris's famed historical monuments and museums in Les Invalides.

Trump said his son's June 2016 meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, who Trump Jr. had been told had damaging information about Democrat Hillary Clinton, was for opposition research, and that "it's very standard in politics".

Trump had, in the past, denigrated Paris as a terrorist risk, but he said on Thursday it was "one of the great cities, one of the most attractive cities in the world".

Speaking alongside Mr Macron, Mr Trump then hinted that the United States could shift its position but failed to elaborate. Flanked by the Melania Trump and Brigitte Macron, Trump grasped Brigitte's hand with his left hand even as he continued to hold the French president's hand with his right. "If it happens, that will be wonderful, and if it doesn't, that'll be OK too", Trump said.

Macron invited Trump to join him for Bastille Day festivities, notes The New York Times.

French President Macron's invitation was offered to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of the entry of American troops into the First World War.


Trump had an awkward handshake when he met with Brigitte Macron.

"We all know that Trump likes a military parade and apparently wanted one for his own inauguration", says reporter Adeline Sire. During a joint appearance, Macron and Trump took note of their policy differences while mentioning that "it's important to keep communicating" as the two nations shared "major common goals".

"This year the parade has double the symbolism and it shows there is still a strong link between France and the United States", he said. So, I really have a feeling that you're going have a very, very peaceful and lovely Paris.

Whilst Brigitte opted for a more fashion-forward look in a sleek, white Louis Vuitton mini-dress that she paired with a tote bag and navy stilettos also from the French fashion house. And I'm coming back.

Binding the two countries above all now is the common fight against Islamist terrorism, and it is on that issue that Trump said his talks with Macron had been most productive. You're running against Donald Trump.
