Trump tells Brigitte Macron: 'You're in such good physical shape'

His presidential portrait, which I have previously discussed in these columns, is one example. He wouldn't miss it for anything.

Now you're all caught up on that whirl-wind day and a half Trump spent in Paris with Emmanuel Macron.

"Something could happen with respect to the Paris Accord".

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

"My determination is total", he said.

Politics is not the nicest business.

But great expectations can herald great disappointment.

TRUMP: Nothing happened from the meeting. And I think together, perhaps, more so than ever.

Mr Macron's aides said he does not want Mr Trump to feel backed into a corner.

In the past, Donald Trump has been called "climate crazy" by the activist group 350.org's director, May Boeve. Most observers see the Paris visit as a moment of triumph for the French President and a brief respite for the US one from his troubles at home.

At a later press conference, Mr Trump offered a new defence of his son over his controversial meeting with a Russian operative.

First Lady Melania Trump has touched down in Paris. Cameron's desperation to win votes spurred him to call a referendum on Britain's European Union membership, the result of which forced him to resign.

The president was echoing the firmness he promised in a speech Thursday to military personnel, vowing to work "until those who organized attacks in Paris, in Nice and elsewhere are definitively vanquished".

Supporters of Palestinians, including the BDS movement and the French Jewish Union for Peace also protested against the visit of the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who is due to attend a ceremony marking the 75th anniversary of the Vel' d'Hiv mass roundup of Parisian Jewry on Sunday.

Of course, getting the right TV coverage takes some effort.

It was the presidency as he would no doubt like it, ceremonial, aggrandizing and shorn of its onerous security briefings and tedious policy debates.

But Sarkozy and Hollande saw their public opinion ratings drop precipitously after their embrace of austerity. In other words, is Macron being driven by faith or hubris?

For dinner with the Macrons at Le Jules Verne, the Michelin-starred restaurant on the second floor of the Eiffel Tower, Pierre also had a hand in the wardrobe.

It's a packed itinerary for the new French president, who has taken to dramatic displays of Gallic splendor in welcoming Trump to France.

Trump says, "America and France will never be defeated or divided".

Trump recently attacked MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski on Twitter, calling her "low I.Q. Crazy Mika" and saying she was "bleeding badly from a facelift" at a gathering at his Florida resort around New Year's. Nearly two years ago, Carter announced that after treatment he was free of cancer, a melanoma that had spread to his liver and his brain.

France has been under a state of emergency since November 2015, when 130 people were slaughtered in a wave of coordinated violence across Paris, with French lawmakers voting last week to extend it for the sixth time.

With this visit, analysts say, he sought to do the same.
