Macron invites Trump to Bastille Day to honor US WWI troops

Trump says'oui to French leader's Bastille Day invitation

Trump did not formally endorse a candidate in the French presidential election, but he had indicated his support for far-right National Front candidate Marine Le Pen, saying "she is the strongest on borders and she is the strongest on what's been going on in France". Both men were smiling as their knuckles went white from the gator-like grip of both men. Macron said France would not give up the fight to "make our planet great again".

Newly-elected speaker of the French National Assembly Francois de Rugy of "La Republique en Marche" (Republic on the Move or LREM) political party delivers his speech during the opening session in Paris, France, June 27, 2017. Macron has frequently touted "Make The Planet Great Again" as a dig at Trump's famous catchphrase, while Schwarzenegger quickly responded to the June 1 US withdrawal from the climate accord with a Twitter video later that night.

Macron, who has spoken out on a number of LGBT issues, officially became the President of France last month.

French President Emmanuel Macron has promised to bring an global draft agreement dedicated to environmental issues to the United Nations (UN) in September.

On June 1, as Trump was announcing the USA's withdrawal from the Paris Agreement, Macron posted a video on Facebook in which he basically called any and all United States scientists to come live and work in France.

But the Indian was no pushover and played the catch-up game quite well, coming up with a couple of brilliant smashes of his own. And though, the Chinese picked up a couple of points, a cross-court drop shot saw the Indian establish a 14-11 lead.

French diplomats and defence officials said that there had been no specific information passed on to Paris on the new activity.

Following Trump's announcement that the United States would no longer be a part of the Paris climate accord, President Macron as well as numerous environmental advocates criticized his decision.

Following Trump's withdrawal from the Paris climate change accord, Schwarzenegger posted a short video on Twitter stating: "One man can not destroy our progress".

Trump is scheduled to visit Europe shortly before Bastille Day, when he travels to Poland and Germany from July 5-8.
