Pomp and mourning as Macron, Trump mark France's Bastille Day

The visit to the hospital is Melania's first public engagement during her and President Donald Trump's two-day visit to Paris

With a military parade on the Champs-Elysees and a gilded tour of France's most storied monuments, French President Emmanuel Macron has laid on the charm as he positioned himself as the indispensable intermediary between Europe and Donald Trump.

Despite some wariness in the initial contacts between Trump, 71, and Macron - who at 39 is the same age as Trump's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr. - the American leader's two-day visit to France ended on a high note.

On a lighter note, Trump was there for France's Bastille Day celebrations, which is kind of like French Independence Day. He congratulated French President Emmanuel Macron (eh-mahn-yoo-EHL' mah-KROHN').

After having offered their seemingly bright perspective on a joint work in world politics, the two leaders looked reluctant to take questions from the media, however.

Macron responded - in English - in a speech in which he urged people the world over to "Make our planet great again", a clear play on Trump's campaign slogan. 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.

The American president noted that Bastille Day marks one year since a terrorist killed 86 people celebrating the holiday in Nice. Trump's visit marks 100 years since USA troops arrived in France to fight in World War I.

"We've spoken in detail on what may allow him to return into the Paris accord", Macron said in comments published Sunday in the newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche. However, despite serious talks between the leaders, the handshakes were scrutinized online Friday.

Trump praised a cease-fire in southern Syria that he helped broker last week with Russian Federation and Jordan and said the USA was working on a second cease-fire in a "rough part of Syria".

"She has a nice smile on her face so I bet she treats you well", Trump told Varadkar.

Trump, meanwhile, has appeared more than pleased at his reception here.

While the majority of French think the visit was a good idea, the most vocal voices have been those who oppose the visit and oppose the US president.

Ms Reiman explains that on Brigitte attempting to retreat, Trump instead "squeezes her right hand pinky and ring finger tightly. not allowing the withdrawal".

Some world leaders have decided that when dealing with President Donald Trump, flattery will get you everywhere.

One of Trump's first moves after becoming president in January was to sign executive orders advancing the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines.

Trump is tweeting shortly before his appearance at the annual Bastille Day parade in Paris.
