Bastille Day: US-French fighters fly over Paris

Bastille Day: US-French fighters fly over Paris”

On Thursday night, the USA president and first lady Melania Trump joined Macron and his wife, Brigitte, at a famous restaurant on the second level of the Eiffel Tower. "Beautiful, isn't she beautiful?"

Feminists have denounced Trump's attention towards the wife of Macron as sexist. She and Melania shortly walked off.

Mr Trump, 71, was frequently on his feet and applauding, while he and Mr Macron again looked at ease in each other's company, leaning in to chat and touching each other on the shoulder.

A Twitter user Alex Berg condemned the US President for making such a statement.

It his first Bastille Day celebration as president.

The talks in the Elysee Palace came after an afternoon of high ceremony, with Macron receiving his USA counterpart under the gilded dome of the Hotel des Invalides where Napoleon Bonaparte is buried.

Both power couples share a large age gap, with Mrs Macron, 64, some 25 years older than her 39-year-old husband and Mr Trump, 71, almost the same number of years older than 47-year-old third wife Melania.

The warm body language between him and Mr Macron seemed at odds with broader concerns about the transatlantic relationship since Mr Trump's election victory in November a year ago.

Trump kissed Macron's wife Brigitte on each cheek, and Macron greeted Trump's wife Melania in the same way. Lately, the US President has been under fire for his comments about women's appearances.

Anyone who has heard the Access Hollywood tape, or read the dozens of complaints against Trump for sexual assault knows that this is how he treats women. Among the recipients of his negative comment were Carly Fiorina, his opponent for the Republican nomination, and recently "Morning Joe" co-host Mika Brzezinski whose face he described as bleeding badly from a facelift.

HORSLEY: Trump and Macron shook hands several times for photographers today without the clenched teeth of their first meeting two months ago.

Macron's government trimmed the 2017 defense budget in an effort to ensure France meets its commitment to bring its budget deficit below the European Union cap of 3 percent of national income in 2017.

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

The wife of Emmanuel Macron had chosen a mantle of pristine white in the modern fit, which is worn on a dress - which, you guess, she was of the same color - and with a pair of shoes night blue absolutely gorgeous.

The Elysee official said the intended symbolism of dinner at the Eiffel Tower was that "Paris is still Paris".
