Donald Trump Copping It For 'Complimenting' The French First Lady's Body

During the brief visit, Trump - who sees himself as a transformative figure in U.S. history - will be the guest of honour for Friday's Bastille Day festivities that mark a pivotal point in the French Revolution.

He will be guest of honour at today's Bastille Day celebrations, which this year also marks the 100th anniversary of the US's entry into World War I.

The Trumps' first official visit to Paris may be most remembered for the sartorial stamp US First Lady, Melania Trump, and the FirstLady of France, Brigitte Macron, have left on the city of light.

"Something could happen with respect to the Paris accords, let's see what happens, but we will talk about that over the coming period of time and if it happens that will be wonderful and if it doesn't that'll be OK too", he told reporters in Paris yesterday (13 July).

Mrs. Trump smiles pleasantly as Mrs. Macron moves closer to her side and cups her elbow.

This was thought largely a result of unhappiness over the Paris accord withdrawal, as well as Trump's policies on trade. "This is so handsome", the U.S. president told Macron as they met at the Hotel des Invalides where Napoleon Bonaparte and other French war heroes are buried.

In May, Trump used the occasion of his maiden summit with leaders of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) leaders to, once again, remind his fellow NATO alliance leaders of being not "fair" to USA taxpayers and demand the bloc members increase their military spending.

Objections against Trump's visit to France have so far been muted, with the government insisting on the need to build bridges with the White House and avoid Trump becoming isolated internationally.

"In the fight against terrorism, our views are perfectly aligned", Macron said, adding a contact group will be created to support the United Nations, namely to help organize post-conflict Syria.

Mr Trump has said the climate deal was unfair to the U.S. but said the country was committed to protecting the environment despite his recent withdrawal decision. "If it happens it'll be wonderful and if it doesn't, that'll be OK, too", the United States leader said.

Here is everything Trump has tweeted since he was sworn in as 45th president of the United States.

"#Trump telling France's First Lady "you're in such good shape" epitomizes men toeing the line between compliment & sexual harassment", wrote Twitter user Alex Berg, a freelance video producer and writer who works on feminist and gender issues.

French President Emmanuel Macron, on his part, said that he respected Trump's decision but reiterated France's committment to the accord.

Trump and Macron first met at North Atlantic Treaty Organisation in Brussels in May where they exchanged a muscular handshake which Macron later described as "a moment of truth". The emails were sent ahead of a Trump Tower meeting with a Russian lawyer that Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, and Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, also attended.
