In a speech after the flypast, Mr Macron said: "Mr Trump's presence at my side is a sign of an enduring friendship and I want to thank him".

"This year the parade has double the symbolism and it shows there is still a strong link between France and the United States", he said.

"I think Macron is the legacy of the Paris agreement, and its accomplishment is the key part of his agenda", said global climate director, David Waskow, at the World Resources Institute.

He had also added that the United States was walking out of the accord as it was putting USA industry at risk.

The American was the guest of honour at today's Bastille Day parade to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the USA entry into Wolrd War 1.

The state pomp was matched by personal gestures.

"Our two nations are forever joined together by the spirit of revolution and the fight for freedom", he said. That began a century of USA cooperation and involvement in European affairs, a policy many in Europe fear President Trump is retreating from.

Trump also said he didn't know the meeting was about collecting dirt on Clinton. "And he already said at the press conference, 'You have a lovely, peaceful city".

Shortly after arriving in France on Friday, President Donald Trump commented on the physical appearance of France's first lady.

Other users focused on Melania Trump, who looked like she was left out of the exchange, and joked that Macron's wife told her to "get out while you can".

Trump will the first USA president to have participated in the ceremonies since 1989.

At the news conference, which followed a private meeting between the two world leaders, Trump also spoke about the controversy surrounding his son, Donald Trump Jr., who has been asked to testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee regarding his meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, notes NPR.

"There was one uncomfortable moment later on", Kimmel said.

"We're working on a second cease-fire in a very rough part of Syria", he said. What? I don't go to Paris. That's what I do.

"We have disagreements; Mr Trump had election pledges that he took to his supporters and I had pledges - should this hinder progress on all issues?"

Late today, Lynch said she had nothing to do with it.

Macron told media: "We have a lot of discrepancies, obviously, with Russian Federation, but in the current environment, especially in the Middle East, it's a necessity to work together". The US president didn't make any remarks.
