ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. U.S. President Trump and French President Macron watched American and French soldiers march together along the Champs Elysees avenue in a double celebration marking 100 years since the United States entered World War One as well as France's annual Bastille Day holiday. The occasion, also featuring a bi-national fly-past of fighter jets symbolising present day military cooperation in the Middle East and elsewhere, follows a day of talks with French President Emmanuel Macron, a first ladies' tour of Paris, and dinner for the foursome at a restaurant in the Eiffel Tower. It brings to an end a visit Macron needs as a boost to France's standing on the world stage - one which could also help a U.S. leader left short of international friends by his stances on free trade and climate change.
