WASHINGTON, The United States of America – US President Donald Trump and French counterpart Emmanuel Macron took their bromance to new heights at a bilateral meeting in the White House Oval Office on Tuesday.

“We have to make him perfect. He is perfect. So, it is, it is really great to be with you and you are a special friend,” he said.
