President Donald Trump nodded along as French President Emmanuel Macron discussed a range of policy issues on Saturday at the G7 summit in Biarritz, France, followed by Trump’s remarks that included multiple references to the local weather.
In what was billed as a “Bilateral Meeting with the President of France,” Macron spoke for nearly three minutes detailing areas of mutual interest on issues like North Korea, Iran, climate change, and international trade as Trump nodded along and occasionally stared off into space, reports Mediaite.
Trump said that he and Macron have “been friends friend long time and every once in awhile we go at it just a little bit, not very much.”
“We get along very well, we have a very good relationship, sort of I think I can say a special relationship,” Trump added.
“We all remember the Eiffel Tower dinner, that was a very good beginning, and we have some really great things to talk about, and we couldn’t ask for better weather or a more beautiful location,” Trump continued. “Next year will be hosting in the United States, so that’ll be great. Very good. That’ll be great. We’ll do a good job.”
“But so far so good, the weather is perfect,” Trump again observed. “We will accomplish a lot this weekend and I look forward to it. Thank you for having us.”
"We have a lot in common, we have been friends for a long time"
