Trump’s ‘inappropriate’ comments about Brigitte Macron’s body mar Paris visit

The Trumps and Macrons visited Les Invalides, the site of Napoleon’s tomb and a military museum on Thursday before both leaders conducted a joint conference on climate change, Syria, Russia and the long-standing Franco-American relationship.But while the band’s take on one of France’s finest musical exports is mightily impressive, their performance was only topped by The Donald’s reaction to the whole thing.Brigitte Macron, French President Emmanuel Macron, Donald Trump and Melania Trump. “She’s in such good physical shape”. Earlier Thursday, when the two first met, their handshake and subsequent embrace drew some raised eyebrows for its seeming awkwardness.The 47-year-old practising Catholic, chic in a red Dior outfit with her hair pulled up in a chignon, was in Paris at the start of a Bastille Day visit by the U.S. first couple. Responding to a question about terrorism in France, Trump said Macron would not be “easy on people who are breaking the law”. “Went to Eiffel Tower for dinner”.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”.”Great evening with President @EmmanuelMacron & Mrs. Macron”, Trump wrote on Twitter Friday morning. After his tour, Trump attended a private luncheon with members of the USA military and French embassy personnel, where he gave remarks thanking them for their service and paying special honor to three World War II veterans who fought on D-Day.It started off as most shakes do, but quickly escalated into hand-holding, as the politicians continued to hold on to the other as they proceeded to walk down a brick street.It wasn’t clear how Brigitte Macron reacted, but she appeared to pass over the remark.”Something could happen with respect to the Paris accords, let’s see what happens”.Tomorrow, Friday, July 14th, the President and Mrs. Trump will participate in a viewing of the National Day Parade in honor of Bastille Day with President and Mrs. Macron.
