Macron: My charm offensive may soften Trump's climate stance

Emmanuel Macron, the French president, thinks he may have convinced his American counterpart, Donald Trump, not to withdraw the United States from the Paris Agreement on climate change.

President Donald Trump and Brigitte Macron, first lady of France. "Ever since General Lafayette joined the American fight for independence, our fates and fortunes have been tied unequivocally together", Trump said in the attached video. "Beautiful", Trump told the first lady of France inside the marble hall of the Hôtel National des Invalides museum, shortly after he arrived.

The Canton, Mass. -based brand Tweeted on Friday: "In case you were wondering when it IS appropriate to say, 'You're in such good shape...handsome'".

Donald Trump and Emmanuel Macron shared another prolonged handshake.

Trump said "nothing happened from the meeting", and insisted that Trump Jr. had committed no wrongdoing.

Australia struck its one-off refugee swap deal with the former United States president Barack Obama last year to provide refuge to up to 1,250 asylum seekers but it ran into trouble earlier this year when Trump raged publicly at the "dumb deal", telling Turnbull in a private phone call it was the "worst deal ever". "It's only because my wife is 20 years older than me that people say it's not tenable". Reebok thought you should only ever vocalize such an observation to a childhood toy, rediscovered in ideal condition in your parents' basement.

"France's priority in Syria is eradicating terrorist groups", Macron said, adding, "I do not require Assad's departure".

For good measure, Trump's press secretary subsequently mangled Turnbull's name.

While both Trump and Macron continued to struggle, neither letting go, Wood reiterated that the US president appeared to exert more effort to gain control - a far cry from the French president's more comfortable approach.

But not really. Trump is not exactly popular with the Australian public, two-thirds of whom opposed his election, according to an Ipsos poll.

Trump has said the climate deal was unfair to US business.

"I have a son who's a great young man", he said.
