In response to calls from others in Congress for him to testify before the intelligence panel, Trump Jr. tweeted Monday that he was "happy to work with the committee to pass on what I know".

On his first Bastille Day as president, Emmanuel Macron attended the French capital's military parade alongside his U.S. counterpart, Donald Trump.

HORSLEY: Trump and Macron shook hands several times for photographers today without the clenched teeth of their first meeting two months ago.

Macron, who invited President Donald Trump to France's Bastille Day celebrations, headed toward the main viewing stands as the American leader arrived. "Congratulations President @EmmanuelMacron!" he added.

The president is visiting France as the nation's guest of honor for Bastille Day.

Trump kissed Macron's wife Brigitte on each cheek, and Macron greeted Trump's wife Melania in the same way.

"It's very hard to play chess with a man whose strategy is a complete mystery and whose only consistency is his pursuit of American national interest", he said. Trump saluted the detachment as it passed. As the French president told reporters through an interpreter, he and his wife are hosting the Trumps for an intimate dinner tonight. Trump often indicated he agreed with that assessment.

The president and first lady will be joined in the ceremony by almost 200 American service members, including troops from the U.S. Army's First Infantry Division as well as three heroic U.S. veterans of the Normandy invasion, and French military personnel.

Melania Trump, for its part, had set her sights on a very classical and delightful tailor red dress, which happened to him under the knee, worn with a pair of stilettos coordinated.

The leaders plan to hold a news conference after their talks, and Trump may face tough questions about emails revealing that his eldest son welcomed the prospect of receiving Russian government support in last year's presidential campaign against Hillary Clinton. "Trump telling France's First Lady "you're in such good shape" epitomizes men toeing the line between compliment & sexual harassment", he wrote.

The remarks in Paris, made in a joint news conference with French president Emmanuel Macron, came even though Mr Trump's own Federal Bureau of Investigation pick said a day earlier that authorities should be advised of requests to meet with foreign individuals during a campaign. Macron invited Trump to be the guest of honor at Friday's celebration, which also commemorates the 100th anniversary of the US entry into World War I. US intelligence agencies have accused the Russian government of meddling through hacking in last year's election to benefit Trump and harm Clinton, and authorities are exploring potential coordination between Moscow and the Trump campaign.

French President Emmanuel Macron, standing in a military jeep, inspected the troops lined up on the avenue. But he said the stark disagreement on climate change wouldn't affect work between the US and France on issues like terrorism and the Middle East.

In his speech, Macron made clear he would not let this kind of criticism happen again.
