American in Paris: Trump is Guest of Honor at Bastille Day Parade
Donald Trump and Emmanuel Macron watched as American and French troops marched side by side in the Bastille Day Parade.
French President Emmanuel Macron and French Army Gen. Pierre de Villiers arrive in a command car for the traditional Bastille Day parade on the Champs-Elysees in Paris on July 14, 2017.
U.S. soldiers wearing World War I helmets march past Macron, his wife Brigitte Macron, President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump.
This year's Bastille Day parade has dual symbolism: Not only does it celebrate July 14, France's most important holiday, marking the storming of the Bastille prison in 1789, which helped spark the French Revolution. It also commemorates the 100th anniversary of the United States' entry into World War I.
