Donald Trump tells French First Lady she's in 'such good shape'

"Something could happen with respect to the Paris accord", President Trump told reporters in the French capital on Thursday, in reference to the worldwide climate agreement that he withdrew from six weeks ago, to the dismay of governments around the world.

Trump and the first lady earlier arrived in Paris for a two day visit built around Friday's Bastille Day celebrations and the 100th anniversary of the entry of the United States into World War I. Trump continues to argue that stories about Russian meddling in the US election are overblown despite the new revelations about his son's meeting past year with a Russian lawyer.

Trump is continuing to downplay the issue, saying "nothing happened" as a result of the meeting.

Last week when taking part in the annual summit of the Group of 20 (G20) in Hamburg, Trump reiterated his position to ditch the Paris Agreement while the rest of G20 members pledged their efforts to support the climate deal.

After Ms. Perry introduced herself, Mr. Trump told Mr. Varadkar, "She has a nice smile on her face so I bet she treats you well".

"Something could happen with respect to the Paris accord", he said.

"Well we have a lot of your Irish press watching us, they're just now leaving the room", he said, before looking at Ms Perry and saying: "Go ahead".

Trump's second European trip this month comes amid new revelations about his presidential campaign.

Trump Jr. released emails this week from 2016 in which he appeared eager to accept information from the Russian government that could have damaged Hillary Clinton's campaign.

Like the Trumps, there is an age difference between the Macrons.

With full fanfare, complete with honor guards and a band, the American president visited Napoleon's tomb at Les Invalides, a 16th century complex housing medical facilities for veterans, and France's national military museum.

Macron hopes to demonstrate to Trump the willingness of France to play a broader role in global security affairs. "Not a government lawyer, but a Russian lawyer", he said. He mentioned the launch of a new "contact group on Syria", comprising the permanent members of the security Council of the United Nations and regional countries, without more of precision.

And he said the U.S. and France face "grave threats from terrorist organizations that wage war on innocent lives", but said the countries "stand united against these enemies of humanity". The president's son tweeted Monday that he would work with the panel. "You have someone who's going to run this country right".

Trump has drawn criticism in the past for comments some say objectify and demean women, including the infamous "Access Hollywood" tape in which he bragged about sexually assaulting women and boasted, "When you're a star, they let you do it".
