American Troops to Lead Bastille Day Parade in Paris

Trump's visit to Paris has drawn global attention.

The photo depicts Trump and Macron standing in the center, with Macron's wife Brigitte standing next to the US President and Melania Trump, posing between the French President and the restaurant's chief.

The two men exchanged smiles and pats on the arm, in contrast to their first meeting, in June, when they had a handshake tug-of-war.

The parade on Paris's Champs-Elysees commemorated the centenary of the USA entering World War I and featured horses, helicopters, planes and troops.

When they first met, he grabbed her hand and yanked it wildly in the air.

He kissed Brigitte Macron on the cheek as her husband continued gripping Trump's hand.

Trump has a history of commenting on women's appearances, both positively and negatively.

Trump's interaction with France's first lady marks his second awkward moment with her.

President Donald Trump is making headlines again for his unusual handshake behavior (video below).

President Donald Trump had another awkward moment as he shook President Emmanuel Macron's hand in preparations to leave France.

Macron then pumped the president's hand once more, a bit forcefully, then leaned in toward the taller Trump and said something behind a cupped hand.

Justin Trudeau and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe are just some of the world dignitaries to have been on the receiving end of Trump's freaky handshakes in the past, but surely nothing can top this effort with French President Emmanuel Macron during the Bastille Day celebrations in Paris on Friday?

"My handshake with him, it's not innocent".

Mrs Trump was later expected to visit Notre Dame Cathedral and tour the Seine River by boat with Brigitte Macron, the wife of French President Emmanuel Macron.

Macron struck a similar note, stating that nothing can diminish his country's relationship with the U.S.

Trump instead said that Paris "is going to be just fine" mostly because France now has "a great" and "tough" president.
