He even checked into Trump Tower on the day of the meeting.
There are 3,700 members of the military parading along the Champs Elysees in Paris for the occasion.
President Donald Trump always seems to be doing the wrong thing. Still, the president will find his visit to Paris much more fun than Washington, just as was the German trip last week. "Beautiful", Trump told the French President's wife on Thursday, who was standing next to US First Lady Melania Trump.
The first leader to notice the President's appreciation for exaggerated shows of respect might have been Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
"I think Macron is the legacy of the Paris agreement, and its accomplishment is the key part of his agenda", said international climate director, David Waskow, at the World Resources Institute.
As has been the case throughout her Paris stay, the First Lady paid tribute to the host country in her own referential way. That suggests the Russia story will continue to dog the president when he returns home from Paris tomorrow night.
Flattery isn't everyone's game, though.
Many posts on social media denounced Trump's comments as sexist, the response from the first lady was unclear.
Merkel invited his daughter Ivanka to Germany, seeking a channel to the mercurial President. Later the foursome had dinner at Le Jules Verne Restaurant on the Eiffel Tower, where Melania wore an Herve Pierre dress in a suitable red, white and blue colour palette.
After the parade President Macron will go to Nice to remember the 86 people who died in the attack a year ago. Dianne Feinstein, had also called on Trump Jr.to testify. And he announced plans to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris climate accord. Instead, he simply awaited his moment, then shrewdly engineered Trump coming to pay court to him.
"He's a friend of mine".
"My son is a high-quality person and I applaud his transparency".
Before meeting Abe in Italy in May, Trump said, "we've got a great friendship".
Brigitte Macron is 64. The US President also said that America was committed to protecting the environment. "There is no sudden and unexpected change today, otherwise we would have announced it, but there is the shared intention to continue discussing these issues", the French president added.
The two are thought to have a friendly relationship, and Macron frequently touched her back during the tour.
What does the US get? Richard Burr of North Carolina, hasn't said whether the secretive committee will call him in.
Abe's courtship also seemed to work.
Trump at one point turns to Brigitte Macron and tells her: "You're in such good shape". The rest of the answer is redacted.
