American Troops to Lead France's Bastille Day Parade

The president, Trump has not hidden his admiration for Brigitte Macron, the wife of the French president, who wore a white dress and high heels Thursday.

"Dior is attached to France forever". As he paraded imperiously around Paris with Trump at his side, we saw not one, but two presidents utterly incapable of humility or restraint. This time was like that but so much better. While the promised labour-market reform is well underway, and could be adopted as early as September, the administration's macroeconomic programme, articulated by Prime Minister Edouard Philippe, is a serious disappointment.

"I have a friend, he's a very, very substantial guy".

The problem is, as the French probably realise, that there is no point in plotting global strategy with an American leader who knows little of state craft or world affairs and, whose word cannot be trusted!

L'étape du jour: Tour de France
Henri Nayrou, président du conseil départemental de l'Ariège et fervent partisan de la Grande Boucle, ne pouvait pas rêver mieux. On note cependant des difficultés de taille avec les trois cols ramassés en 50 kilomètres (Latrape, Agnes et le Mur de péguère).

In June, the relationship between the two countries hit the spotlight again, after the release of a leaked tape of Turnbull mocking Trump at an off-the-record media event.

Macron invited Trump to be the guest of honor at Friday's celebration, which also commemorates the 100th anniversary of the U.S. entry into World War I.

Trump said cryptically after their first talks that "something could happen with respect to the Paris accord. but we will talk about that over the coming period of time".

With the sheer number of victims and families affected, the scars run deep.

He also quashed speculation that Keita's contract contains a €55m release clause that comes into effect from the summer of 2018. Robertson made 33 Premier League appearances for the Tigers last season as they suffered relegation to the Championship.

Trump and Macron shook hands as Trump departed a military parade, and they continued clasping hands as they walked along the parade route. "It's called opposition research, or even research into your opponent", Trump said.

President Donald Trump says it was a "great honor" to represent the the annual Bastille Day parade in Paris.

Charles Grassley, (R-Iowa), said Thursday that he is sending a letter to Donald Trump Jr., requesting that he testify in an open session of the committee. The last few grueling weeks have seen them fly the president from Washington to Poland to Germany, back to Washington, on to Paris and then to Bedminster. Trump's brand of "America First" politics had unsettled some European allies. "He sometimes makes decisions that we disagree with, on climate change, for example". Trump's cluelessness has been on display since day one, undermining the confidence of US allies and impeding the Republicans' ability to enact their agenda. More recently, David Cameron served just one term in Parliament before being chosen as leader of the Conservative Party. "Either you can say, 'We're not speaking, because you haven't been nice, ' or we can reach out to him to keep him in the circle".

It was the presidency as he would no doubt like it, ceremonial, aggrandizing and shorn of its onerous security briefings and tedious policy debates.

Personne n'a attaqué le maillot jaune Froome avant la tentative de Geore Bennett (LottoNL-Jumbo) à 800 mètres de l'arrivée. Froome a perdu le maillot jaune pour 6 secondes, ce n'est pas comme s'il avait connu une terrible défaillance.

Sitting at a table with the children, she introduced herself, "Je m'appelle Melania", or, in English, "My name is Melania". "It instantaneously reset the image of France as a player".
