President Trump has watched American and French soldiers march together through Paris in a celebration marking Bastille Day and 100 years since the USA entered World War One.

President Donald Trump yesterday defended his son Donald Jr, who is under fire for accepting a meeting with a Moscow lawyer during the USA election campaign previous year - talks that have reignited allegations about Russia's role in the vote.

During his trip, Mr. Trump hinted that he could change his mind on the USA pulling out of the Paris climate change deal.

At a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels in May, Trump and Macron locked hands for so long that their knuckles started turning white.

"We are the representatives of two countries that have been allies forever", Macron said. Trump arrived in the French capital after an overnight flight from Washington and hours before his meeting with Macron to tackle potential solutions to the crisis in Syria and broader counterterrorism strategies.

In an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network at the White House, President Trump insisted that Russian President Vladimir Putin was likely rooting for Hillary Clinton over him.

Trump is taking a break from the current controversies surrounding him back in the United States and will enjoy a 24 hour trip in Paris where he and Macron where dine at the Eiffel Tower followed by the Bastille Day military parade on the Champs Elysées. We'll see what happens.

"This is a wonderful national celebration", Trump had said during his joint news conference with Macron on Thursday. "Politics is not the nicest business in the world", the president also said, "but it's very standard where they have information and you take the information".

Then, on a separate occasion, he looked her up and down in front of Emmanuel and commented: 'You know, you're in such good shape'.

Almost 11,000 police officers will be on duty, with France in its highest state of alert after a string of terror attacks since 2015 that have killed more than 300 people.

TRUMP: Something could happen with respect to the Paris accord.

The streets around the Champs Élysées Avenue in western Paris were brimming with French citizens and tourists watching the Bastille Day parade early Friday.

London's offer of a state visit for Trump met fierce criticism and warnings that he would be greeted by mass protests.

The 39-year old leader has pledged to bring France's defense budget to the equivalent of two percent of economic output by 2025 from 1.7 percent today.

"Any threat or effort to interfere with our elections from any nation-state or any non-state actor", Mr Wray said, "is the kind of thing the Federal Bureau of Investigation would want to know".
