Here's a look at what's happening on Macron's US state visit, the first by a foreign leader since Donald Trump assumed the presidency last year.

France's President Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte are in the US visiting the Trumps (read more about it here).

Here's a look at what they've been up to.

there are almost no words to describe how disappointing it is to see macron "buddy up" to one of the most destructive individuals in the world today. it's almost beyond my comprehension. how does the world continue to elect leaders like these two clowns? we're better than this. i know we are.
