And, as much as possible, we'll relate what else was going on at the time. And if it happens, that'll be wonderful. And if it doesn't, that will be okay, too.

Mr Trump added: "We'll see what happens".

"The United States remains committed to being a leader in environmental protection while we advance energy security and economic growth", Trump said.

Trump's stop in Paris is created to mark the 100th anniversary of the United States' entry into World War I, and the security theme will carry over in talks between the leaders, which the White House said would center on Syria and counterterrorism efforts. Trump and Macron have woven the praises of the officer, and avoided mention of the death in custody, on Thursday, the dissident Liu Xiaobo, Nobel Peace prize.

HORSLEY: Europeans have made it clear they have no intention of reopening the climate talks.

"My willingness is to continue to work with the United States", Macron told reporters of the two leaders' disagreements regarding the Paris Agreement, according to The Times. It looked as if the two were planning for a handshake, but that shifted into a half-hug, which morphed into a cheek kiss and Trump gripping and shaking the first lady's hand as if it were a video-game controller.
