ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. U.S. President Donald Trump watched American and French soldiers march together through Paris on Friday (July 14) in a double celebration marking 100 years since the United States entered World War One and France's annual Bastille Day holiday. The occasion, also featuring a bi-national fly-past of fighter jets symbolizing 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 a dinner for the four at a restaurant in the Eiffel Tower. The ceremonies bring to an end a visit Macron saw 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 stance on free trade and climate change.
