With a military parade on the Champs Elysees and a gilded tour of France's most storied monuments, French President Emmanuel Macron laid on the charm as he positioned himself as the indispensable intermediary between Europe and Donald Trump.Macron made a point of detailing both the long history of ties between France and America and the areas where he and Trump disagree.Macron and Trump both came to office as unlikely outsider candidates. The youngest president of modern France – and the same age as Donald Trump Jr. – Macron started his own political movement just over a year ago. At Macron and Trump's first encounter in May, the two shared a white-knuckle handshake that the French president said was intended to show he was no pushover.Macron's ability to firmly acknowledge his differences with Trump are part of modern French tradition.
