If we didn't know exactly how Emmanuel Macron felt about Donald Trump, we might think there was a Trudeau-level political bromance going on between the French and American Presidents.

Bloomberg News White House correspondent Toluse Olorunnipa is covering the trip.

Both leaders, accompanied by first ladies Melania Trump and Brigitte Macron, also enjoyed a lavish dinner at a restaurant in the Eiffel Tower.
