You're in such good shape, Trump praises Macron's wife

Daft Punk Medley Performance At Bastille Day Parade With Trump And Macron

Weeks after Macron hosted Russian President Vladimir Putin at the Palace of Versailles, Trump will bask in the trappings of the Bastille Day military parade on Friday and commemorations of the entry 100 years ago of USA troops into World War One.

As Trump prepared to leave Paris, he was making his goodbyes to Macron and his wife Brigitte when the extraordinary handshake began.

After a tour of the monument, Trump turned towards the French first lady, gestured towards her and said, "You're in such good shape".

Video footage of that handshake suggests that it was Macron, not Trump, who refused to let go.

Trump and Macron will review the procession from a stand at the Place de la Concorde.

Donald Trump and Emmanuel Macron showed off their budding friendship as the US President was guest of honour at France's Bastille Day parade.

Following the Bastille Day parade in Paris, Mr Macron will head to the city to attend a commemoration for those who lost their lives. Some users said that the video made the president look "creepy" while others wondered if the French president is "making a fool" of his US counterpart.

The two men exchanged smiles and pats on the arm, in contrast to their first meeting, in June, when they had a handshake tug-of-war. "On at least one, and maybe two, occasions during the tug of war Trump tries to pull away and Macron just keeps holding on", CNN reports.

With his free hand, Macron rather awkwardly points to something for Trump to look at, all the while continuing with the handshake.

Donald Trump, the 45th President of the United States, found himself back on familiar ground on Friday-talking about golf.

"You're in such good shape".

French President Emmanuel Macron welcomed US President Donald Trump with military fanfare and then visited historic military complex at Les Invalides, built by King Louis XIV, where he was met with a large French army reception and joined Macron in inspecting the troops.
