Trump's remarks came during a news conference in Paris with French President Emmanuel Macron while Trump is visiting the longtime USA ally as part of France's Bastille Day celebration.

As part of the commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the entry of the United States of America into World War I, US President, Donald Trump will attend tomorrow at the Bastille Day military parade.

The parade coupled traditional displays of military might with a look at wars past and present - and a nod to the USA role in both. "Our two nations are forever joined together by the spirit of revolution and the fight for freedom", Trump said at a press meeting on Thursday. Five of them wore period World War I uniforms.

Trump came to France beset by allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 US election, with emails released on Tuesday suggesting his eldest son welcomed an offer of Russian help against his father's Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

In addition to the display of French military might, the parade will be augmented by about 150 United States soldiers, airmen, sailors, and Marines, as well as American aircraft participating in the flyover. He says in a statement released by the White House that France was instrumental in the US winning its independence and the two countries are more united than ever. The iconic Champs-Elysees avenue where the parade took place was the target of two recent extremist attacks. The wide boulevard has been targeted repeatedly by extremists, most recently last month when a man crashed his vehicle into a convoy of gendarmes.

Wray says he is "committed to supporting" the investigation "in whatever way is appropriate for me". More than two months after President Trump fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James B.

As they were saying their good-byes, Trump turned to Brigitte Macron and gestured toward her body.

Trump's visit to Paris has drawn global attention.

Trump says in a tweet that the military parade featuring US and French troops was "magnificent".

In a speech after the flypast, Mr Macron said: "Mr Trump's presence at my side is a sign of an enduring friendship and I want to thank him". The couples went onto dine at the Eiffel Tower.
