Trump's visit to Paris has drawn global attention. She also is a grandmother to 6 grandchildren. She and Melania shortly walked off.

The performance has gone down a treat on social media, and President Macron looked like he was absolutely loving it, as no doubt everyone else watching was.

Trump summoned over a female Irish reporter - Caitríona Perry, the Washington Correspondent and U.S. Bureau Chief for Ireland's state public-service broadcaster RTÉ News - to his desk last month as he spoke to Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar on the phone. In a couple of instances, he moved way past groups in order, specifically, to stand next to President Trump. The French army band's performance consisted of the Daft Punk hits "One More Time", "Get Lucky", and "Harder Better Faster Stronger". "GROSS", a Twitter user wrote.

Macron's relationship to Brigitte, began when he was he was only 15. "I respect President Trump's decision", President Macron asserted.

Speaking with Journal du Dimanche, Macron described his first handshake with Trump as "a moment of truth". The latter seems bemused by the whole thing, but Macron - a relatively young politician, a karaoke lover and an amateur pianist - is clearly into it. The paper mused: "Facing the temptation of isolationism of the American president, Emmanuel Macron hosts him for a bling bling visit".

Mr Trump had said: "The friendship between our two nations - and ourselves, I might add - is unbreakable".

Trump then, with his free hand, engages Mrs Macron in a handshake too, simultaneously shaking the hands of both Macrons at once. "She's in such good physical shape".

It's not the first time a handshake between the two world leaders raised eyebrows.
