French President Emmanuel Macron said on Tuesday he continued to talk to United States leader Donald Trump about re-entering the Paris climate pact but that there was no scope for a renegotiation of the existing terms. Between this and his impressive handshake mindgames, Macron seems to think he has Trump all figured out.
Trump discussed his vision with French President Emmanuel Macron during a photo-op at the United Nations General Assembly in NY, saying the event in Paris, in which thousands of troops marched down the Champs-Élysées to mark a turning point in the French Revolution, "was one of the greatest parades I have ever seen". "It was 2 hours on the button and was military might", Trump said, according to a pool report.
Seated beside the USA president, Macron said: "The strength that unites our relationship is that we say everything".
"So we're actually thinking about Fourth of July, Pennsylvania Avenue, having a really great parade to show our military strength", Trump said. We had a lot of military might. He said he was impressed by the military parade in central Paris in July, when he was visiting the French capital.
The president's infatuation with military parades dates back to at least December, when emails obtained by the Huffington Post revealed that his team had explored - and ultimately rejected - the idea of including military vehicles in his inaugural parade.

I love Adam , and when you get married and you fall in love with someone, you think that there's no greater love than that love. The gorgeous model has confirmed that she is pregnant again and their family of three will turn four next year.
It's perhaps unsurprising, then, that President Trump would be so keen on organizing such parades, as he's seen both fascinated by America's military might and eager to prove America's greatness in the least-subtle ways possible.
The US does not have a history of major military parades marching through its cities, except to celebrate wartime victories.
Trump hoped to have military vehicles in his Inauguration Day parade, but this plan never came to fruition. "I don't know, we're gonna have to try to top it".
It is unclear whether or not Trump's July 4 military parade would be an annual event.
