Trump sides with French victor, at least now

"Yes!" Araud replied, imitating Trump's tight handshake grip.

Trump, whose own election previous year shocked the pollsters, said Macron "ran an incredible campaign and had a tremendous victory". But a French official is quoting Trump as telling the victor, President Emmanuel Macron (eh-mahn-yoo-EHL' mah-KROHN'), that he favored him all along.

May was due to lead a discussion on counter-terrorism with fellow G7 leaders on Friday - including US President Donald Trump - and call for them to put more pressure on internet companies to remove extremist content.

He said: "Both drivers did their utmost today to gather as many valuable points as possible for the championship ahead". The Williams of Felipe Massa went ninth, and the second Haas of Kevin Magnussen took the last place in the points.

By contrast, Trump never spoke publicly about Macron before the vote. So, before you roll your eyes and dismiss this all as fluff and nonsense, remember that the job Trump had right before running for president was as a star of a reality TV show. Former President Barack Obama endorsed Macron. The 70-year-old American president and his 39-year-old French counterpart gave each other a manly salute that ended in a handful of good-natured death. As well as voicing support - though not outright endorsing - Le Pen, he makes no secret of his disdain for Macron's taste for open borders and free trade.

Macron's Brussels d├ębut did provide clues that he wants to share the European leadership role with Germany's Angela Merkel.

'It is my great honor to be with the newly elected president of France, who ran an incredible campaign and had a tremendous victory, ' he said.

It will fly within four million miles from the Sun, which is seven times closer than any other spacecraft has been to the Sun. Another lunar transit will occur later this summer on August 21, wherein the moon will only barely hide part of the sun.

French sources said the two presidents would meet for about an hour to discuss a series of pressing issues - the Ukraine crisis, Syria, North Korea, the economy and the Paris climate agreement which Trump has bluntly dismissed. Aides said the French leader has no intention of avoiding "difficult subjects" in talks with the Turkish leader, whose growing authoritarianism is making the European Union relationship with Ankara increasingly fraught.

But other world leaders have held their own, perhaps most notably Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

"It's necessary for the United States of America to remain an essential partner as regards collective security, development and the fight against terrorism." he said.
