STILL OF MACRON AND TRUMP SHAKING HANDS DURING MEETING STORY: French President Emmanuel Macron got decidedly hands on with U.S. President Donald Trump as the pair met at Paris' Elysee Palace on Saturday (November 10), the morning after a Trump tweet described Macron's call for a European army as "very insulting".

Meeting for talks a day before commemorations to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One, Macron welcomed Trump with a firm handshake and a pat on the arm.

But there appeared to be less immediate warmth in the greeting between the two than in the past.

Then, with the pair seated on gilded chairs in the ornate presidential palace, Macron placed his hand on Trump's knee and referred to him as "my friend", while Trump kept more distance.

During the meeting Trump and Macron told reporters that they agreed on the need for more European defence spending, papering over the tweet sent by Trump as he landed in France on Friday night (November 9).

The two leaders have been noted for their physical interactions in previous encounters, including an April meeting in Washington D.C.

Which saw Trump brush dandruff from Macron's shoulder and remark "We have to make him perfect."
