Trump Comments On French First Lady's Physique

President Donald Trump pauses during a joint news conference with French President Emmanuel Macron at the Elysee Palace in Paris Thursday

As the guests of French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte, FLOTUS and the President were a foursome dining at chef Alain Ducasse's Michelin-starred restaurant. NPR's Scott Horsley reports.

French and American fighter jets are flying over Paris' Champs-Elysees avenue to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the US entry into World War I. "I am grateful to President and Mrs. Macron for their gracious invitation and hospitality as we celebrate Bastille Day with them".

The parade - marking 100 years since the Americans entered World War One - also features horses, planes and helicopters.

French President Emmanuel Macron has sat with other dignitaries as the names of the 86 victims of the extremist attack in Nice a year ago were read out and posted on a board to form the shape of a heart.

Macron said he "remain extremely attached to the framework of the Paris Accord", which has been a major worldwide breakthrough. When he said "and ourselves", Trump reached out to touch Macron's shoulder, a gesture that drew Macron's smile but not his reciprocation.

"France is a attractive country that is rich in history and culture", Trump said in her statement. "You have somebody that's going to run this country right". "It's not obvious. It wasn't as though I thought, "OK, I have to do something navy blue, red and white.' The idea was more pure, not a pure coincidence, but something that just makes sense", Pierre said". And I would be willing to bet because I think this is one of the great cities, one of the most lovely cities in the world. The two men are much farther apart on the threat posed by climate change, though Trump said vaguely there could be some movement there.

Man United doubt Real Madrid have funds to buy David De Gea
Sources close to the club claim United understand Real are carrying a huge wage bill and would struggle to bring in De Gea. Who could those two players be? "(We made) offers we thought were fair and yet no agreement was reached".

The Twitterverse immediately lit up with remarks like "Trump is a classless sleazeball", and "he himself is in disgusting shape, which is ironic", and "Shows his lack of respect for his own wife". We'll see what happens.

Macron, in closing the parade, publicly thanked the USA for coming to France's aid during the war, saying "nothing will ever separate us".

But he also said that if it didn't happen "that will be OK too". At last week's G-20 summit, All 19 members beside the USA said the Paris Agreement is irreversible. Trump at one point pulled the smaller Macron off balance and held fast as they approached their wives.

As well, Trump cast the meeting as simply standard practice in the cutthroat world of presidential politics, saying he often received phone calls from people saying they had information that could damage Clinton.

The meeting comes as the USA leader is engulfed in a political storm unfolding at home after his son, Donald Jr, published emails showing he had clearly expressed interest in receiving "private and confidential" information regarding Hillary Clinton from what was told was a Russian government source. In this case, he added, "nothing happened from the meeting, zero happened from the meeting". And honestly I think the press made a very big deal over something that really a lot of people would do. That suggests the Russian Federation story will continue to dog the president when he returns home from Paris tomorrow night.
