US President Donald Trump thanked his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron for hosting him in Paris for the annual Bastille Day celebrations. He noted that it was a “great honor” to represent the U.S. at the annual Bastille Day parade in Paris.
Trump informed that they had “great conversations” on trade, the military and security.
“The United States mourns for the victims of Nice, France. We pledge our solidarity with France against terror,” Trump tweeted recalling the victims of the terrorist attacks in Nice on July 14, 2016.
As AP reported, Trump and his wife have departed France after attending the Bastille Day parade with Macron. He says in a statement released by the White House that France was instrumental in the U.S. winning its independence and the two countries are more united than ever.
According to Trump, Washington and Paris are working to destroy terrorist organizations and will work together to “eliminate their safe havens, end their financing, and eradicate their ideology.”
