Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron are scheduled to hold a press conference at Élysées Palace as Trump visits France for Bastille Day celebrations. The presser is scheduled to begin at 12:25 ET.
It is possible Trump will face questions about how his son and campaign staff met with a Russian lawyer last year with the understanding that the Kremlin wanted to give them sensitive information about Hillary Clinton. The issue placed the White House under renewed pressure over Russia’s election interference, and it has invited new questions about whether people in the president’s orbit colluded with a foreign power to help him win.
Trump might also face questions about how he and Macron have several major differences in terms of policy. Macron does not share Trump’s hard line on immigration, and he mocked his American counterpart over the decision to pull out of the Paris Climate Accord.
