Macron's latest comments will further fuel speculation that the U.S. may not complete the lengthy exit process for leaving the Paris Agreement and could instead put forward an alternative national climate action plan, known as a Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) in the UN's jargon, that focuses more on Trump's fossil fuel priorities.

"(Trump) told me that he would try to find a solution in the coming months", Macron told the paper, referring to meetings the two leaders had this week in Paris.

In a speech ending the Bastille Day parade on Friday, Macron stood before wounded French soldiers and thanked them as well.

Especially since, this year, American soldiers had been invited to march alongside their French counterparts to mark the 100th anniversary of the US entry into the First World War.

It was Trump's first visit to France as president. The two are commemorating the 100th anniversary of the US entry into World War I.

"Beautiful", Trump proclaimed as Brigitte Macron was seen inching closer to Melania Trump. He strengthened our relationship with our oldest ally, and personally, he seemed to have a very good relationship with French President Emmanuel Macron.

He made note of the one-year anniversary of the Nice terror attack, saying the U.S. stands with France in its battle against extremism. And I think that for Donald Trump, there is a kind of relationship between father and son, even if it seems odd to think of it from the president of the United States toward the president of the French Republic.
