5:33 am
friendship that has lasted over time. i would like to take this opportunity to thank them. to think america for a choice they made 100 years ago. with more on that parade... >> it is france's annual display of military might. tille day military parade. tradition requires the president ride down the famous champs and --ee avenue writing writing a military vehicle. a military vehicle. france's national holiday, marking the storming of the bastille.
5:34 am
100th commemorates the anniversary of the united states into world war i. on the main viewing stand, emmanuel macron's guests of honor, president donald trump and the first lady. an invitation to remind the ofsident of the long history the two alleys. lu military band played get cky by daft punk and for a williams. this amused the french president but not donald trump. was aes, donald trump surprise invite to the parade. it really was emmanuel macron's show, with the president watching his first parade since winning the position. >> absolutely. emmanuel macron was very swift
5:35 am
to wear this presidential suit, if you will. this was all very choreographed. he did exactly what was expected of him. looking the soldiers in the eye, which is what they are expecting from their president. indeed looking extremely presidential. it was a show of alliance between france and the united states with american soldiers parading there. of course the presence of donald trump. emmanuel macron also gave a speech at the end of this 14th of july parade. that is unusual. usually the french president addresses the french people but on television on the 14th of july. he chose to do it here probably because he will be going down to nice later to remember the terrible terrorist attack that took base one year ago to the day. choreographed emmanuel macron here at this parade and filling those shoes
5:36 am
smoothly. >> what came out of trump's of visit to france? >> donald trump and emmanuel macron had time to spend together. they had dinner yesterday at the eiffel tower in a fine restaurant on the second floor. they also spent part of the day yesterday and have a lot of time to speak today. we saw them talk to each other on many occasions. a lengthy handshake as well. at the end of the visit. emmanuel macron's objective was to put rants back center -- was to put france back centerstage as far as the united states and europe as -- is concerned. --will try to convince them convince him to rethink the paris accord. trumps what donald appeared during the joint press conference yesterday. it is difficult to know there
5:37 am
will be any movement on that specific dossier. other things, one thing on which france and the united states, emmanuel macron and donald trump agree is fighting terrorism. french troops and american troops are fighting side-by-side in iraq and syria against the islamic state group. this show here was an opportunity to emphasize this military cooperation but there are many other things on the table such as global trade with the united states, thinking of putting tariffs on to european steel. we don't know if they have talked about this. it is unpredictable with donald trump, what is his take away from the paris visit? certainly it was a welcome break from domestic politics and problems with his son being embroiled in the russian interference litigations into the election last year. indeed it was -- it was an
5:38 am
opportunity for both men, they really did go very far to show that there is a real friendship between them. >> james reporting their. thank you. joining me in the studio, as i was saying earlier, president macron's invitation to donald trump was indeed a surprise. what was he really hoping to achieve? >> a few things. he saw how donald trump got on want trump does not to feel isolated and then he becomes friends with conservatives in hungary and poland and shutout western europe. he wants to avoid that. macron wants to be the go to person for donald trump in the eu. james was hinting at the personal relationship -- that is
5:39 am
important if you want to work effectively with another political leader on areas you agree on and things you don't agree on. we heard climate change issues, trump saying something might happen with paris, who knows what that means or who -- or how long it will last but it seemed like a softening temporarily. also i think emmanuel macron was trying to change the image that donald trump supporters have of trump -- of trump. -- a paris, of france. we remember that famous tweet. paris is not paris any longer. look what he says now. emmanuelning with macron and mrs. macron. relationship stronger than ever. that is aimed at his supporters. for the establishment, it is to keep his base fired up. france, emmanuel macron, we are witnessing a
5:40 am
different type of presidency and no more did you see that than in today's ceremony. >> absolutely. it is clear that macron really likes grandeur, not just the choice of setting for welcoming foreign guests such as donald trump today or vladimir putin at the palace, but also he is unusual things, such as addressing speeches to both houses of parliament at the same chateau of versailles. his enthusiasm for this military symbolism. in some ways he is the successor to the institution of the french monarchy. as judescribed his style piterian. by that he means the remote king of the roman gods. there is an obama connotation
5:41 am
a choreographed common man image on social media. wrench selfies with citizens or pictures of him boxing or playing tennis. that is very controlled. ofis a deliberate reversal the past presidencies where the images were not controlled enough and they demeaned the office of the french presidency. that was a common perception among the public. >> thank you so much for that. 24's claire williams has been with the crowds as they watch the parade. they lucked out with the weather today but how are people rating this year's march? you can probably see behind avenue is beginning to get back to normal. the metro stations have opened in the shops are reopening. the crowds are disappearing. i managed to speak to a few people before they left and generally people were extremely
5:42 am
happy with what they saw. it was a real sight to see. i am two thirds of the way up the avenue and what people from your could see were the motorized vehicles coming down the champs elysee. very popular here in france. there on the front line particularly in the terrorist activities we are seen in the past three years. when they went past and the big red onions, they got -- in the big red engines, they got lots of applause. australians, united states, a young man from thailand, they said they had never seen anything like this in their home country. they were expecting it to be full of pomp and circumstance but this was really something else. everyone i spoke to was pleased with what they saw today. washis year's parade
5:43 am
marking the 100th year of america's involvement in world war i. what did the crowd have to say about donald trump in the guest of honor? >> i spoke to dozens of people in the crowd. french people as well as tourists. the overall impression i got was that people here didn't seem to see it as a big deal given the historical context. given that it has been 100 years now, 1917, when the united states came to the aid of france in the first world war. it was seen as a appropriate historical reason for donald trump being here and four 145 u.s. troops and eight aircraft to fly above the avenue. french as well as tourists said they did not have an issue with that. another thing worth noting is that if you people said, we also know that france and the u.s. are working alongside each other to defeat the islamic state group in syria and iraq area when we --.
5:44 am
the current modern context it makes sense and it is appropriate that donald trump was here and that 145 u.s. soldiers were marching down the avenue. >> claire williams reporting there. thank you. president emmanuel macron will be traveling to the southern join in the to anniversary of last year's terrorist attack. the crowd was watching fireworks. there are a series of events including a ceremony which will be attended by the president beginning at 6 p.m. local time where he will be making a short speech. throughout the day people have been invited to pay their respects to those killed and injured. to help the victims, the french government has put in place a compensation fund of 25 million euros for the victims and relatives still struggling to
5:45 am

5:46 am
rebuild their life after the loss of a loved one. the president of a victims association lost her 10-year-old son in attack -- in the attack. >> i simply cannot put a number -- each victim should be held individually depending on their needs. a mom,'t just go you're you lost a child, here you get this much. in86 died during the attack nice. but the number of victims is almost impossible to determine. there were many requests for compensation. so far only half of the request have been granted. -- twong on to israel israeli police officers have been killed. near jerusalem's holiest site. the attackers shot three people
