In Paris, Trump Defends Son's Meeting With Russian Lawyer

Trump said "it was a great honor" in an early-morning tweet.

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

Security forces kept tourists and passers-by, smartphones in hand, at a distance as Trump and Macron arrived at the soaring Gothic landmark in the heart of the French capital.

The two leaders shared a passionate and lengthy handshake at the end of President Trump's two-day state visit to France.


Mr Trump has previously criticised how France has dealt with recent terror threats, but he told a reporter of his confidence that Mr Macron is "not gonna be easy on people who are breaking the laws and show tremendous violence".

President Trump is in Paris this week after being invited by Mr Macron to celebrate Bastille Day.

"Something could happen with respect to the Paris accords, let's see what happens", Trump told a news conference. "Our two nations are forever joined together by the spirit of revolution and the fight for freedom", Trump said at a press meeting on Thursday.

At a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels in May, Trump and Macron locked hands for so long that their knuckles started turning white.


Trump is, of course, well known for his handshakes, which have become a topic of much debate during his first six months in the White House due to their awkward intensity and literal power-grab nature.

The warm body language between him and Macron seemed at odds with broader concerns about the transatlantic relationship since Trump's election victory in November past year. Mr Trump saluted the detachment as it passed.

Thousands of French troops marched down the Champs-Élysees to mark the storming of the Bastille military prison in 1789, a turning point in the French Revolution and 150 United States soldiers, airmen, sailors, and Marines and aircraft also participated in the parade. Let's forget that he's a xenophobe and a racist; the president of people who believe that Bob Evans Restaurants are fine dining is an global creep.
