Twitter Reacts To Trump And Macron's Uncomfortably Long And Creepy Farewell Handshake

France's Macron Prepares to Welcome Trump, an Unlikely Partner

"This is a wonderful national celebration".

This year the celebration is also meant to commemorate the centennial of United States entry into World War I, hence French President Emmanuel Macron's invitation to Trump to attend.

U.S. leader Donald Trump and France's Emmanuel Macron made a show of friendship in Paris on Thursday (13 July).

French President Emmanuel Macron escorts US President Donald Trump after their meeting at the Elysee Presidential Palace on Thursday in Paris, France. Mr Trump's wife Melania is 47. "Our two nations are forever joined together by the spirit of revolution and the fight for freedom", Trump said at a press meeting on Thursday.

His objectifying comments about his own daughter and the French First Lady demonstrate that for Trump, a woman's role is to look attractive and be looked at, not to have a brain.

As the U.S. president prepared to head home, the leaders clasped hands and held on to each other as they walked. The president's spouse apparently went for a handshake, while Trump grabbed her by her shoulder and went in for a kiss, which was followed by a lengthy hand holding.

The first time Emmanuel and Donald met, in Brussels, they shared a long, tense handshake. They then engaged in an interminable hand clasp before Mr Trump was whisked away in his motorcade.

In a video from The Guardian, you can see Macron recognize the melody, and slowly his smile turns into a modest head nod for "Digital Love", which is also my guaranteed-to-get-me-to-the-dancefloor jam. "America and France will never be defeated or divided", he said.

Macron invited Trump to be the guest of honor at Friday's celebration, which also commemorates the 100th anniversary of the US entry into World War I.

Shortly after his speech, Macron and Trump walked down from the tribune where they were sitting to stand in front of giant French and American flags that were unfurled by soldiers.

Trump's trip has included a gilded tour of one of France's most storied monuments and dinner at the Eiffel Tower.

He then turned to her husband, the French president who is within hearing distance and repeated the remark.

Later, post-awkward handshakes, the quartet visited Les Invalides, where footage of the encounter captured Trump telling Brigitte Macron that she is "in such good physical shape" and "beautiful".
