Trump lands in Paris for talks and tourism

The US President Donald Trump and his wife Melania have arrived in France ahead of Bastille Day celebrations.

The pair are guests of honour for the festivities which will commemorate the entry of US troops into World War One 100 years ago.

He’s due to hold talks with his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron. After a bumpy start to their relations, it’s thought both leaders are looking to improve ties by focusing on shared diplomatic and military endeavours, such as Syria and the fight against global terrorism.

They will later dine with their wives at a restaurant on the second floor of the Eiffel Tower.
