US President Trump Meets Macron In Paris

President Donald Trump held the door open to a reversal of his decision to pull the United States out of the Paris climate accord , but did not say what he would need in return to persuade him to do so.

Trump and Macron's relationship got off to a bumpy start, but both have an incentive to improve relations - macron hopes to elevate France's role in global affairs, and Trump, seemingly isolated among world leaders, needs a friend overseas.

Trump came to France beset by allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. Election, with emails released suggesting his eldest son welcomed an offer of Russian help against his father's democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

Macron views it as counter-productive to isolate the United States on the world stage, and said he and Trump had asked diplomats to draw up in the coming weeks a concrete initiative aimed at preparing the future of Syria.
