France trims budget to meet European Union deficit target

Europe must claim tax due from US giants

They are geared primarily at protesting Macron's proposed laws at loosening labor protections, with Trump's visit only a marginal issue at the events. He has in mind being apart a bit, which allows him to strengthen his leadership.

The greater risk is for Trump, said Thomas Gomart, director of the French Institute for International Relations.

Merkel, as it happens, will also be meeting Macron on Thursday - both she and Trump will converge on the French presidential palace within hours of each other.

"He doesn't hide the major differences with Trump, but it's a way to put himself in this position to give a hand to Trump, probably for the future", Naves explained.

Macron's troubling comments on African procreation weren't the only controversial aspect of his response, as several media outlets wrote about the colonialism inferred by his remarks and his conflating of the entire African continent. But Macron should realize-and, after last weekend, probably does-that Trump just isn't into him, or into anything else that Macron and most of the other heads of Europe represent.

"There is a desire to have this personal connection, maybe find some more positive agenda", Rapnouil said.

Trump is in France for Bastille Day, the national holiday.

The tour will be followed by bilateral meetings with President Macron and his senior advisors. "It's not impossible", Joannin said.

Amid clamour in Washington over the Russian involvement in United States elections, President Donald Trump has departed for France.

"It even affirms his political agenda getting an global image".

"I think he has begun to back up that rhetoric with action, but he's a very new president like Trump, and time will tell".

"We will talk about all the issues which are of interest to us both, including those about which we have disagreements when we have them, but also a lot of the issues on which we are working together - the terrorism threat, the crises in Syria and Libya, and a lot of issues which are of interest to us both", Macron said. "France is far and away one of the largest and strongest military members of the alliance", spends "an terrible lot" on defense now and "carries a heavy load in the counterterrorism fight".

Only 14% of French people in a recent Pew Global Attitudes Poll expressed confidence in Trump to do the right thing in worldwide affairs.

But this looks nearly certain to become Trump's third visit to Europe dominated by questions over the role Russian Federation played in his election.

"Probably on this aspect the French president will want to remind [Trump] of the worldwide engagement", de Marcilly suggested. "He [Trump] sometimes takes decisions that we disagree with, on climate change for example", Castaner added.

"There is a view that if we can't have this administration change position, better if we still can work with other United States actors so that some part of the U.S. does participate in climate change global policies".

"Trump will not change his opinion regarding this [climate] matter".

But Macron calling the birthrate continuously destabilizing was also an issue, it said.

For Trump, whose approval ratings at home and overseas have sunk since he took office, experts say leveraging Macron's popularity could improve his administration's image among European allies.
