Bienvenue! President Trump and Melania Arrive in Paris Ahead of Bastille Day

Via Daily Mail:

President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump have arrived in Paris for a commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the United States’ entry into World War I and the annual Bastille Day celebrations.

The first couple arrived at Orly airport just after 8:30 am local time, Melania sporting a chic red blazer and skirt combination paired with red pumps, while the president remained in the same suit with the same tie that he had on when he left Washington.

They’re packing a punch with the brief trip that brought them back to Europe five days after the G20 summit.

First on the president’s list is a stop at the US ambassador’s residence. Melania Trump split off from her husband to tour Hôpital Necker – Enfants Malades, a children’s hospital in Paris.

The Trumps will be formally welcomed to Paris by French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife, Brigitte, at Les Invalides, a military monument, this afternoon.

They’ll top off their day with a meal at the posh Jules Verne restaurant on the second floor of the Eiffel Tower late in the evening.

The president sent out a flurry of tweets highlighting jobs and industrial gains, a stock market high and a favorable recommendation from a House committee for his border wall before he took off for France with his wife and three of his top advisors in Air Force One on Wednesday evening.

Trump separately told reporters as he exited the White House to board the helicopter that would deliver him to the plane, ‘We’re doing great against ISIS.’

The president departed Washington under a cloud of suspicion, once again, over charges that his campaign colluded with the Russians to win last year’s election following a series of bombshell reports on his son’s meeting with a Russian lawyer who’s been accused of peddling misinformation on Hillary Clinton.

Seeking to put the business with Don Jr and the Russian national behind him before his third foreign trip, Trump gave two interviews to Reuters and the Christian Broadcasting Network before his overnight flight.

Trump told Reuters had no idea that his eldest son met with Kremlin-linked lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya until a few days ago.
