Trump and Macron attends Bastille Day celebration in Paris

Melania Trump France Paris

"You know, you're in such good physical shape", Trump said, before repeating the observation to her husband.

Before the Trumps set off for the US Trump and Macron gripped each other's hands and chatted, before Trump pulled the French President's wife in for a weird three-person handshake.

Following his two-day visit, Trump tweeted: "It was a great honor to represent the United States at the magnificent #BastilleDay parade".

He added that it was his "high honour" to commemorate, on French soil, France's most historic day and the 100th anniversary of the entry of the United States into the First World War.

But one user said: "Trump hadn't planned what to say to Brigitte Macron in advance".

Magazine Paris Match as well as TV network France24 both noted criticism of the comments overseas, especially in the USA where Mr Trump's comments are scrutinised often for sexism.

US President Donald Trump is well known for his inappropriate comments in public and he just added another stunner yesterday when he first met French President Emmanuel Macron's wife.

Following the Bastille Day parade in Paris, Mr Macron will head to the city to attend a commemoration for those who lost their lives. They then engaged in an interminable hand clasp before Mr Trump was whisked away in his motorcade.

The US president said last month that America, the world's second biggest polluter, would pull out of the Paris agreement, which aims to limit global warming, and has promised to champion US fossil fuels firms. "Something could happen with respect to the Paris accord", Trump said. The US leader was French President Emmanuel Marcon during the Champs Elysees parade in Paris.

Trump also performed a prolonged handshake with Macron upon meeting him in Brussels in May.

Trump then, with his free hand, engages Mrs Macron in a handshake too, simultaneously shaking the hands of both Macrons at once.

Trump's handshake with Macron on Friday also broke the record for his longest with a foreign leader.

French President Emmanuel Macron (eh-mahn-yoo-EHL' mah-KROHN') is positioning himself as the indispensable intermediary between Europe and Donald Trump. Thursday saw a full military review and a tour of Napoleon's tomb at Les Invalides before a haute dining experience on the second landing of the Eiffel Tower.
