Donald Trump to visit France

Trump, 71 and the oldest man to enter the office of US president, and Macron, 39, the youngest French president, have more in common than one might think, Rosenberg says.

An Elabe poll showed that 59 percent of French people approved of Macron's decision to invite Trump.

Talks between the two leaders are expected to focus on joint efforts to combat the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria, where American and French troops are in action side-by-side.

President Donald Trump's relationship with Emmanuel Macron got off to an awkward start, with a jaw-clenching handshake at a summit in Brussels before the French president rebuked the USA leader for his stance on climate change.

According to Paris Match, Macron and Trump will have blue lobster and caviar as the highlights of the meal.

On Thursday, Mr. Trump is scheduled to have lunch with American military commanders, then join Macron for a tour of the French Military Museum.

For the moment, however, one thing is certain: the teetotaler president will be dined in lavish fashion.

His behavior at the summit proved the point in a few ways.

The planned protest will likely mirror the reception Trump got in Europe last week when he arrived for the G-20 Summit.

French President Emmanuel Macron is in hot water for saying that one of Africa's main problems is women having too many children. There were plenty of such issues out there: North Korea's latest missile test, the spread of Islamist terrorism, maybe a wild card like women's equality or global hunger. The only plausible explanation for why not is this: He didn't want to.

In the lead up to what will be Trump's first official visit to France, the White House chose to highlight areas where the two leaders can collaborate, and said their differences could foster more constructive dialogue. This may be unprecedented.

BARBIER: Donald Trump is looking to the past.

White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, National Security Advisor General H.R. McMaster and National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn have also travelled to Paris. Trump, 71, is an anti-globalist elected on a pledge to "make America great again" who is unpredictable on foreign policy. During his earlier stop in Warsaw, demonstrators chanted "Go Home Trump!". In any case, the meeting between them is unlikely to move the needle in either direction for either president. And it is more important than four years with Donald Trump. The official told reporters it is "always possible" trade issues in general - and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership in particular - could be discussed when Trump is in France on July 13 and 14, in part to participate in Bastille Day celebrations.
