President Macron's party seen on top in French parliament election

At the Thursday summit, Trump did shake Macron's hand intensely, and the initial meeting and handshake grip between the two world leaders prompted major social media scrutiny.

Although Trump did not appear to notice Macron's furious efforts, the Frenchman was apparently very proud of his poignée de main, which some journalists noted turned Trump's knuckles white. Both men's jaws seemed to clench.

"It's not the be-all-and-end-all... but a moment of truth", Macron said.

Macron subsequently told the Journal du Dimanche in an interview published Sunday that it was "a moment of truth". Along with a warning about Trump's aggressive handshake, Capehart also reported Araud "sent a memo to Macron advising him on how to handle the American president". "I don't believe in diplomacy of the public invective but in bilateral dialogues".

"Macron was solid in his exchanges with Trump".

In an April 21 interview with the Associated Press, the USA president said he believed an attack that week on police officers in Paris would help the National Front leader because the violence played to her strengths. We've all seen countless videos wherein POTUS yanks someone's arm in an attempt to look dominant as the unsuspecting soul stumbles towards him, wondering, "who the fuck shakes hands like this?"

The facts: Mr Trump may never have explicitly endorsed any candidate in France's election, but he had only nice things to say about Ms Le Pen.

'We have a lot to discuss, ' Trump added, 'including terrorism and other things.
