Trump salutes strong bond between US, France

U.S. President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron shake hands in Brussels

U.S. President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron shake hands in Brussels

The newly elected Macron has been critical of Trump's decision to back out of the Paris Climate Agreement and his approach to climate change.

France celebrates Bastille Day today with US President Donald Trump as Emmanuel Macron's guest of honour.

The Associated Press reported that Trump and Macron were set to talk about topics such as the ongoing crisis in Syria, as well as counter-terrorism strategies during a meeting on his visit to the country.

Melania Trump is accompanying her husband, before the pair dine with Mr Macron and his wife, Brigitte.

Earlier Thursday, the 39-year-old French leader said he had a "strong disagreement... about the climate" deal, with Trump, adding: "I hope in the end to be able to persuade him".

President Donald Trump suggested Thursday that "something could happen with respect to the Paris accord" as he discusses the issue with French President Emmanuel Macron.

I think from a practical standpoint most people would have taken that meeting.

When it comes to fighting terrorism, President Macron said, the US and France have always seen eye-to-eye. And who could forget the time Trump called the 1996 Miss Universe victor "Miss Piggy"?

Macron told Trump he is "always welcome" in France. That's when President Trump grabbed her right hand at an odd angle and began yanking away.

Trump had arrived for a visit to Paris and was preparing to take part in the Bastille Day celebrations on Friday.

"You've also said that France and Germany are infected by terrorism and 'it's their fault, because they let people enter their territory, '" he continued.

President Trump likes a military parade, especially ones where USA troops will be included. "The relationship is very good", he said.

Trump, while addressing a press conference along with Macron, defended his son and said there was nothing unusual in that meeting.
