Trump, Macron Look to Past, Future as US-French Alliance Moves Ahead

Once suspicious Trump now embraces France

French President Emmanuel Macron pledged Thursday to increase defense spending starting in 2018 after bashing his top general for criticizing spending cuts in this year's budget. After the hospital visit, the First Lady continued to the United States Ambassador's residence to give remarks and introduce her husband during a meet-and-greet with military troops, embassy employees, and their families.

He then turned to French president. "And honestly I think the press made a very big deal out of something really a lot of people would do", Trump said. Yet during a meeting with France's first couple last week, President Donald Trump was fixated on something other than Macron's political acumen.

It was just one way in which Macron rolled out France's red carpet for Trump, following the same program laid out by Saudi Arabia during Trump's first foreign trip as president, in late May.

This year's festivities, which also commemorate the 100th anniversary of America's entry into World War I, is being marked by French President Emmanuel Macron's invitation to his USA counterpart Donald Trump to participate as a guest of honor.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: I have a son who is a great young man. (Trump, who was supposed to call on two American journalists, called on one American and one Chinese TV reporter.) "I will not interfere in US domestic policy", said Macron.

We've come to not expect much from President Trump, but moments like this startle us back into remembering that his words aren't just misinformed, they are damaging to whole groups of people.

Standing in the Hotel National des Invalides in Paris on his first state visit to the country, Mr Trump then appears to turn back to France's first lady, 64, and say: 'Beautiful'.

But since President Donald Trump's election, each meeting between the US president and his foreign counterparts turns into a game of macho one-upmanship, with sometimes unusual or hilarious results. Remember: this is Donald Trump talking, this isn't a normal or acceptable way to behave.

It also doesn't help that Trump withdrew from the Paris Agreement on climate change.

Like it or not, the White House is still the most powerful executive in the world.

JOHN YANG: The two leaders said they discussed Syria and the fight against terrorism.

See, this all comes amid a heated constitutional battle in which Trump's son, Donald Trump, Jr.

Trump clearly appreciates his treatment by the leader of France because of the hostile nature of certain media outlets in America - and the endless saga of undermining his presidency by focusing on the role of Russian Federation in the electoral affairs of America.

"We must work with the government of Iraq to consolidate the gains and ensure the victory stays a victory, unlike last time", he said during the joint news conference.
