Donald Trump hints at change in United States position on Paris Climate Accord

President Macron greeting Mrs Merkel before a joint cabinet meeting at the Élysée

Both leaders, accompanied by first ladies Melania Trump and Brigitte Macron, also enjoyed a lavish dinner at a restaurant in the Eiffel Tower.

John Binder is a reporter for Breitbart News.

"My son is a wonderful young man who took a meeting with a Russian lawyer - not a Russian government lawyer but a Russian lawyer", Trump said.

The two men capped off the first day with a lavish meal atop the Eiffel Tower - followed by a massive Bastille Day celebration on Friday complete with a military parade and centennial commemorations of the entry of USA troops into World War I.

Jen Siebel Newsom, a documentary maker and actress, (@JenSiebelNewsom) said on Twitter: "Mr. Trump - Women do not want to hear unsolicited remarks on what you think of their bodies".

Trump said it was normal in USA politics for campaign teams to look into allegations about their opponents, as his son agreed to do before the meeting in June 2016.

Warner said the panel "is just now starting to interview those individuals who are affiliated with the Trump campaign who may or may not have had contacts with Russians". "She's attractive and gorgeous", Ysatis said.

It was clear from her growing ease and comfort on the global stage that the first lady is fulfilling her duties as representative of her husband's administration even while controversy brews back home.

His dismissal of the topic came the same day the Republican and Democratic chairmen of the Senate Judiciary committee requested Trump Jr. testify before their panel about the episode.

The exchange between Mr Trump and Brigitte Macron was filmed as the pair and their partners toured the museums at Les Invalides in Paris.

EasyJet to protect itself post-Brexit with new European company
Around 30% of easyJet passengers are flying on routes between and within the EU27, not touching the UK. The move is regardless of the outcome of talks on a future UK-EU aviation agreement, the company said.

Mr Trump has been denounced for comments deemed sexist, including criticising the looks of former presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Carly Fiorina, comedian Rosie O'Donnell, media figure Ariana Huffington and models Kim Kardashian and Heidi Klum. How was Paris this summer?

"I showed them how the cathedral was at the heart of French history and Paris". Are you kidding me?

Trump has previously decried the security situation in Paris, lamenting that "Paris isn't Paris any longer" - and suggesting the city had been overrun by extremists.

JOHN YANG: Today, he turned it around to flatter his host.

"To imagine that you might change his mind on something is simply mad". "We'll see what's going on", he added, very cryptic, "we'll talk about it during the coming period". You better do a good job, please.

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.

While the two leaders put the climate and trade divides to one side for the moment, they highlighted their shared determination to find more in common such as efforts to counter terrorism in Middle East and negotiate a ceasefire in Syria.

President Donald Trump was overheard complimenting the first lady of France, saying she was "in such good shape", during a live video in Paris on Thursday. Instead, he acknowledged that politics can be a sometimes-unsavory business where damaging information changes hands often.

Trump is in Paris as a guest of honor to mark Bastille Day and commemorate the 100th anniversary of the American entry into World War I.
