President Trump is traveling to France this week to meet with French President Emmanuel Macron in a joint press conference on Thursday in Paris, according to the French government. The world leaders will attend a Bastille Day celebration together.
It should be an interesting event, considering the strained relationship between the two after Trump announced his decision to pull the U.S. out of the Paris climate accord.
Upon meeting Trump for the first time in May at a summit meeting in Brussels, Macron engaged the U.S. President in a prolonged handshake, which Macron said at the time was “a moment of truth.”
Trump was one of the only world leaders at last week’s G-20 summit who left without holding a full press conference, although he did participate in a joint press conference last week with Polish President Andrzej Duda, taking questions from two American and two Polish journalists.
