France wants the D-Day commemoration to showcase its long friendship with the United States, but relations are strained as President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron prepare to meet Thursday on the sidelines of the 75th anniversary of the Allied landings in Normandy that helped free Europe from Nazi occupation.


Trump and Macron enjoy putting on a show of exaggerated handshakes, warm kisses and taps on the back, but they disagree on key issues, including climate change, Iran and world trade.


Still, Macron’s office insists the two leaders get along.



“The relations between the two presidents are very good with a careful combination of warmth, mutual respect and also straightforward manners when they disagree,” a top official at Macron’s office said on customary condition of anonymity.
