President Trump defended his son.
On her first full day in the French capital, the first lady ventured out without the president by her side, spending the morning with a small group of children at Necker Hospital.
Sitting at a table with the children, she introduced herself, "Je m'appelle Melania", or, in English, "My name is Melania". "Most people would have taken that meeting". "So in a way, he'll be treated to what he likes best".
On Friday, before returning to the United States and a scheduled weekend at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, the first lady will again be beside her husband, viewing the National Day Parade in the center of Paris as it marches down the Avenue Champs-Elysees. No one expects Trump to seriously reconsider his position on the climate pact.
ANDRE KASPI: Emmanuel Macron is 39, exactly the same age as Donald Trump's son. "And I'm coming back'". Trump, though he came to power as a Republican and governs alongside them, sold himself as a right-wing populist. As the French president told reporters through an interpreter, he and his wife are hosting the Trumps for an intimate dinner tonight. Trump is a nationalist. You have somebody that's going to run this country right. Trump prefers bilateral diplomacy.
He follows that up with, "Beautiful". Macron believes in a robust European Union and has been among the President's foremost critics on climate change policy.
TRUMP: Something could happen with respect to the Paris accord. "It's not the alpha and the omega of politics, but a moment of truth". There's a diplomatic aspect, but there's also an economic aspect that Macron never forgets. "All of the journalists, including Russian ones, had access to my campaign".
President Trump was criticized on social media for what many saw as another instance of inappropriate behavior toward women.

If you think that someone is breaking the law, then they should head to the police station. He also noted that the so called cow vigilantes as cannibals.
But over the past six weeks, Macron has made waves with a handful of less easily categorized remarks and public observations.
"I want all these deep reforms that our institutions seriously need to be done within a year", he said. The procession was led by American troops.
"We all know that Trump likes a military parade and apparently wanted one for his own inauguration", says reporter Adeline Sire. "We can use it too". Andre Kaspi is professor of American history at the Sorbonne University.
Jean-Luc Mélenchon, who ran in the first round of the French election as the candidate of the far-left, called Macron's preference for the palace a "sign of the pharaonic drift of this monarchical presidency".
As a young model in the mid-1990s, Melania Trump lived in Paris, France, taking jobs in the hopes of breaking into the fashion industry.
HORSLEY: Trump and Macron both say they see eye-to-eye on terrorism as Trump recalled the attack in Nice, France, that occurred a year ago on Bastille Day.
Trump could only be impressed.
