Trump tweeted later on Friday that he'd had "great conversations" with Macron. "Relationship with France stronger than ever". Then, as the presidents and first ladies watched from a platform, they moved into the more upbeat medley of Daft Punk music, highlighted by the French electronic duo's 2013 hit "Get Lucky".
"And you're always welcome", Macron answered. Trump patted Macron's hand and they jerked their hands back and forth in an arm wrestling motion.
When Macron's wife, Brigitte, moves in to say goodbye, Trump leans forward and kisses her on the cheek.
"My handshake with him, it's not innocent", the French president explained. We know he's heard Toby Keith, 3 Doors Down, Jon Voight, Jennifer Holliday, DJ Ravidrums, The Piano Guys, Tim Rushlow, Larry Stewart, Marty Roe, and Lee Greenwood at his bigly depressing, F-list inauguration. He congratulated French President Emmanuel Macron (eh-mahn-yoo-EHL' mah-KROHN'). The first lady also visited Hopital Necker-Enfant Malades, a children's hospital at the beginning of the trip to spend time with young patients.
The Trumps will leave for the airport immediately after the parade has finished. Bastille Day celebrations in the southern city of Nice were last year hit by a terror attack that killed 86 people.
At one point, Trump offered a hug to the French first lady, who was sucked into the handshake herself immediately after.
Trump is known for his crushing handshakes and he appears to give Brigitte Macron the usual treatment as she tries to release her hand from his grasp.
Trump is tweeting shortly before his appearance at the annual Bastille Day parade in Paris.
"This is a wonderful national celebration".
