'France is no longer France': Trump meets Macron to seek common ground

Despite Macron’s desire to stand near Trump at the G20 family photo in Hamburg last week, as he pushed his way through the world leaders to take the place beside the US president, he has repeatedly criticized Trump’s recent decision to pull out of the Paris agreement on climate change.
A smiling Emmanuel Macron shook Donald Trump’s hand in Paris, despite tensions over Washington’s pullout of the Paris climate deal. Trump once stated that he would not visit the nation, as terrorist attacks had proven that “France is no longer France.”
The two leaders met at the Hotel des Invalides on Thursday, a 17th century military complex where Napoleon Bonaparte is buried.
"Emmanuel, nice to see you. This is so beautiful," Trump told Macron.
