MACRON JOB CUTS, WAGE FREEZE TOO SEVERE
 Thousands of furious workers threw stones at police and broke shop windows Tuesday to protest President Macron’s stringent job cuts and wage freeze.
Police drove them back with water cannons and tear gas.
The Paris demonstration was part of more than 100 protests by major trade unions across France.
Macron’s workplace policies have caused his approval ratings to nosedive, with 55 percent of the population wanting him out of office.

Merkel gets the pub’s rush

Trump dumps the frump after love fest with Manny

German Chancellor Angela Merkel came to Washington to meet with President Trump and ended up eating a hamburger in a pub.

Her three-hour visit was a dismal affair compared with the three-day extravaganza for French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte, which included a 21-gun salute, a helicopter tour of Washington, a tree planting ceremony and a extraordinarily lavish state dinner organized by the gorgeous and stylish Melania.

C’est là vie!

GLAMOUR AND POWER AT THE WHITE HOUSE

France’s first couple Emmanuel and Brigitte Macron are in the U.S. for three days as guests of President and Melania Trump. They all had a private dinner Monday night at George Washington’s former estate in Mount Vernon, took in the sights of D.C. from a helicopter, planted a tree in the White House lawn — a gift from the Macrons who will guests of honor at a sumptuous state dinner Tuesday night.

Macron will address the U.S. Congress on Wednesday. Several topics are up for discussion by the two world leaders, including the Iran nuclear deal, Syria and trade and tariffs, but the entire visit is dominated by the close friendship between Manny and The Donald, and most of all by two ultra stylish First Ladies.

A couple of mavericks

French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte are in the U.S.A. and will have a private dinner with President and Melania Trump on Monday evening and be hosted at a ritzy state dinner on Tuesday night.

Macron, 40, and Trump, 71, have become close pals.

“We have this very special relationship because the both of us are probably the mavericks of the system,” Macron said in a TV interview on Sunday.

“President Trump’s election was unexpected in your country, and probably my election was unexpected in my country. We are not part of the classical political system.

“We are very much aligned on some of the very critical issues of the world, especially countering terrorism and fighting ISIS.

”We have a very strong, personal relationship based on the different meetings we had, especially such as your president gave to my country for Bastille Day in 2017.”

When asked if the many scandals swirling around Trump will affect his standing on the world stage, Macron said:
“To me, there is no impact.”
