"(Trump) told me that he would try to find a solution in the coming months", Macron told the paper, referring to meetings the two leaders had this week in Paris. The event is nothing if not a glorification of the French state and military, with the President as the focal point of it all. The first five were dressed in World War I uniforms.
While both Trump and Macron continued to struggle, neither letting go, Wood reiterated that the USA president appeared to exert more effort to gain control - a far cry from the French president's more comfortable approach.
The in-shape comment may be an oblique reference to the fact that Brigitte, at 64, is 24 years older than her husband - the same age difference shared by 71-year-old Trump and Melania, who is 47. It's also worth keeping in mind that, despite the French president's newfound optimism, Macron had already lobbied Trump to stay in the Paris agreement before Trump chose to withdraw. And make no mistake, the French President wants to be seen at home and overseas as determined to save the planet.
Trump forced to release Mar-a-Lago visitor logs after court order
Mr Trump has spent quite a bit of time at his Mar-a-Lago properties since his inauguration in January. The Department of Homeland Security says it has no records of visitors at Trump Tower.
But Macron, like so many others who see the Paris agreement as necessary to keeping the planet from overcooking, likely believes any crack of light he sees in the door Trump slammed on the deal is worth trying to crowbar open.
Wood also pointed out that Trump patted Macron's hand "to admonish him for doing a top-down handshake and gain power again". Macron made a beeline for Trump only to change direction at the last moment to instead greet German Chancellor Angela Merkel. He added: "I found it an extremely interesting conversation, and to be continued, and I'm just going to leave it at that".
Appearing on the Insiders programme on Australia's national broadcaster ABC on Sunday, Bishop was asked by host Barrie Cassidy about how she would respond if Trump commented on her physique, as he had done to French first lady Brigitte Macron.
The pictures clearly captivated the emotions of Mr Macron that showed him unimpressed and cold.
